Selling your property quickly
Everyone wants to sell their home quickly and although you cannot physically find the right buyer, ensuring that your property looks good is key to making a quick sale. Competition is fierce and so you have to make it stand out. To achieve this the following tips can make a difference.
De-clutter- Buyers do not want to see clutter. They want to see a clear home that they can see it for what it is. Therefore, you need to throw away anything that is not wanted and store away things that you can live without. Clear shelving and windowsills so that more light comes into the room.
Clean – A house that is dirty will give buyers the impression that you have not looked after the property properly. Start by giving it a clean from top to bottom and that includes hoovering, dusting and mopping floors. Clean the bathrooms and kitchens as these are rooms that can become dirty and house odours.
DIY – Repair any damaged walls, doors or flooring and ensure that you touch up any marks or even go as far as to repaint. Try to give buyers as few problems to find as possible and if that means lubricating door hinges then so be it!
Interior – Make your home as easy to view as possible by keeping the interior simple. This means basic colours such as light colours will keep things spacious and airy. Mirrors and better lighting can make a difference. Making it feel homely will certainly make buyers want to purchase.
Exterior – The outside of your property will create a first impression and you want that to be one that makes buyers want to look at the property with a real interest. Give all gardens a clean and cut the lawns where necessary. Paint any fencing or walls and add in some new plants.
