Selling your property quickly
Achieving a quick property sale is all about ensuring that your property is better than the rest. This means that it appeals to buyers which will lead to viewings and potential offers but doing this successfully means you have to follow a few simple tips. The list below will ensure your home looks its best and ready to sell for a maximum price.
De-clutter- Buyers hate clutter because it stops them from viewing the property in the way they wish. So get rid of as much clutter as possible which means either throwing it out or storing it away out of sight. Removing clutter will increase space and enhance the viewing experience for potential buyers.
Clean – A clean house will make buyers feel comfortable and it will also make them feel like the home can be moved into straight away. Shampoo all carpets and clean all hard floors and focus on kitchens and bathrooms as these can collect additional dirt. Polish and dust all furniture to make sure that everything looks its best.
DIY – Even if you do not like DIY, do your best to finish all jobs. Buyers will want as little work as possible so do all you can to repair walls, damaged flooring or even broken fittings. Paint where necessary to give rooms a lease of life. Time spent carrying out DIY will be worth it.
Interior – The interior has to feel right to buyers. This means that you choose the right furnishings and fittings along with the right colours. Neutral colours will give the impression of a blank canvas for buyers to add their own touch while it will enhance the feeling of light and space.
Exterior – Getting the exterior right is the first step towards a potential sale. Spend time focussing on your garden and ensuring it is clean and tidy. Add new flowers and plants and cut lawns if required. Clean the windows and garage door if you have one to ensure that everything is sparkling clean.
