Selling your property quickly
There is no doubt that you will want your house to sell quickly, therefore you have to hope that the right buyer comes along. However, you will be pleased to know that the following tips will give you some idea of how to make sure that your property stands out from the crowd.
De-clutter- To give your property the best chance of selling you will need to remove as much clutter as you can. Throw away as much as possible and try to store the items that you would like to keep. This will help you to easily create more space. Removing items from windowsills and shelving will encourage additional light to spread around the room.
Clean – It is important that you spend as much time as possible cleaning your home. Thoroughly dust, hoover and clear each room but remember to pay special attention to the kitchen and bathroom. Toilets, sinks, baths, showers, ovens, hobs and work surfaces can become pretty dirty so spend time scrubbing them to get them looking as good as new.
DIY – Don’t avoid the DIY jobs because buyers will spot them. Any job that needs doing has to be finished regardless of the size. Anything from a loose cupboard door to marks on walls have to be repaired because they will put buyers off purchasing your property. Putting in the work now will give you the best chance of making a sale.
Interior – Buyers will focus on the interior and how they can make it their own. Therefore, you need to give them a blank canvas to work from. Lighter colours work best because it allows them to add their own touch to rooms without having to completely decorate while adding more light will help to make rooms feel larger than they are.
Exterior – Try not to neglect the exterior of your property because this is just as important as any other area of the home. Cut lawns, trees and bushes and spend time cleaning patios, pathways and driveways. Clean windows and frames and repaint any fencing or walls where necessary. The exterior of your home will be the first thing potential buyers see.
