Selling your property quickly
The most ideal situation for any homeowner selling their property would be to sell it as quickly as possible. While this is always possible there are a few things that sellers can do to make their property stand out above other properties for sale that fall in the same price bracket.
The following tips could help you to achieve a quick sale.
De-clutter – Buyers will be unable to see your property if it is full of clutter so you need to do all you can to reduce it. Throw away as much as possible and put any other items in cupboards or storage. Items such as books, CD’s and even magazines should be hidden away. Do as much as you can to increase the space that your home has to offer.
Clean – Buyers will not want to see a dirty home so give it as good a clean as possible. This means spending time on every room especially the kitchen and bathroom. Clean worktops, appliances and cupboard doors as well as hobs, ovens, sinks, taps and baths. Wash all floors and shampoo carpets where possible.
DIY – Completing even the smallest of DIY jobs will make a difference to the opinion of your buyers. Fix loose shelves or curtain rails and fill any cracks or holes in the walls. Replace lightbulbs and fix any leaks as well as repaint where possible.
Interior – Getting the interior of your home right is the first step towards a successful sale. Enhance space by choosing to use light colours and themes. Subtle colours will inject a bit of personality while it will still allow buyers to see themselves in your home with their choice of décor.
Exterior – Gardens can become tired looking over time so spend time sprucing them up. Give lawns a makeover by cutting and weeding them and trimming any overgrown plants or trees. Paint fences and even the house if required and spend time cleaning driveways, paths and patios.
