Selling your property quickly
To successfully sell your Leeds house quickly, it is not just a case of hoping for the best because it could take months. In reality you have to make sure that you property looks its best so that it appeals to a wider market. The following tips will help you to get the most from your property and hopefully a quick sale.
De-clutter- Clearing your property of any clutter will instantly give the impression of space. To achieve this simply store away any items that do not need to be on show such as certain items of furniture, ornaments and even pictures. Throw away anything that you no longer need and clear the window sills. All of this will help to make your home feel more spacious.
Clean – Give every single room a thorough clean. This means polishing, hoovering and mopping. The bathroom and kitchen are the two rooms you need to focus on because these are the rooms that attract the most dirt and they are the rooms that buyers will take a closer look at.
DIY – Unfinished jobs can make your home look awful and potential buyers will certainly be put off. Fix anything that is broken such as shelving, doors, radiators or flooring. Give rooms a lick of paint and repair any walls. You need to get your property looking its best.
Interior – A buyer will want to see the interior in the way that they will want it, so you have to give them a relatively blank canvas. Keep colour schemes neutral and do not add too many bold colours. Increase light by using mirrors and make the place feel light and airy.
Exterior – A good looking exterior will certainly get buyers keen to look further. Tidy the garden up and improve it by giving the lawn a cut and by planting colourful plants and flowers. Paint fencing and repair walls and ensure that all rubbish is collected.
