Selling your property quickly
A quick sale is satisfying in every way but this is not always the case. Many properties can sit on the market for months resulting in lower sale prices. However, there are a number of changes you can make to ensure that your property appeals in every way. The list below will enable you to make your property stand out from the crowd.
De-clutter – A clutter-free home will be a dream come true for buyers as it will allow them to see the true beauty of your home. Remove as much of it as possible so decide what can be thrown away and what needs to be stored away. This helps to create space and allow more light to show off your property.
Clean – Ensure that your home is spotless. Buyers will look at everything so spend time on those areas that pick up the most dirt such as kitchens and bathrooms. Hobs, ovens and work surfaces are often tricky as are toilets, baths and showers. Spend time hoovering and cleaning other floors while giving the windows a clean will enhance the amount of light that enters the room.
DIY – Even if DIY is not your thing, do your best to put things right. Anything from a broken tap to a loose radiator will give buyers something to think about so putting them right will allow them more time to focus on the right things.
Interior – This is where you have to tailor the colour scheme and décor to the needs of your buyers. Light colours will enhance the feeling of space and it will help to increase light. Introducing subtle colours to enhance comfort and warmth will make buyers feel like they could settle into your home and make it theirs.
Exterior – The exterior is just as important as any other area of your home so you need to make sure you get it right. Trim lawns and remove dead plants, rubbish and debris. Clean the windows, front door, garage door and any frames while ensuring that the driveways, pathways and patios are clean and clear will create an inviting space.
