Selling your property quickly
A quick sale make life easier for all involved but unfortunately not every property sells in a short time-frame. Homeowners have to hope that the right buyer comes along but there are a few things they can do to make sure that their property gets noticed. The tips below will help to make a difference.
De-clutter- If your home looks untidy, there is no doubt that buyers will be put off. This makes it important to remove as much clutter as possible. Clutter that you no longer need can be thrown out and other items such as ornaments, picture frames and even furniture can be stored away. Create as much space as possible.
Clean – Potential buyers love a home that is clean so spend time cleaning every room. Bathrooms and kitchens will need extra attention as hobs, ovens, baths and showers can become dirty. Carpets, over time can become full of stains and marks so a shampoo and a hoover will do the trick. Clean windows and wipe down doors to make things appear brighter.
DIY – Any jobs that do are not finished will only be left for potential buyers so make sure that you fill any holes in walls, touch up or repaint walls and even fix that leaking tap. Sticking doors or anything that is loose will need tightening. Do as much as you can to give your potential buyers less to worry about.
Interior – If you get your interior right, your buyers will feel like they can move in straight away. If you decide to repaint then consider using colours such as magnolia or white. This will give buyer the potential to add in their own theme. Add soft furnishings to make it feel homely but don’t go overboard as it could look cluttered again.
Exterior – The exterior of your property will paint a picture of the rest of your home to potential buyers so getting it right is vital. Give the garden a thorough tidy by removing all leaves and rubbish but also by spending time on the lawn and patio areas. Tidying up plants and bushes by either given them a trim or removing them will help to enhance the look of the property.
