Selling your property quickly
A quick sale makes life easier for all involved. It means that your buyers can move in sooner and it also means that you can move to your new property sooner but things do not always go to plan. The tips below will provide you with some guidance on how to make your property appeal to a wider market.
De-clutter- If you want buyers to appreciate your property then you will have to de-clutter. Clutter will only make your property feel smaller so begin by removing as much clutter as possible and throwing it away. Clutter that you want to keep should be stored away and this will include things such as furniture, ornaments and even books. Keep window sills clear as this will enable more light to enter the room.
Clean – A clean home will encourage buyers to consider your property because it will instantly look more appealing. Cleaning bathrooms and kitchens should be a priority as these are rooms that can gather dirt and grime. Spend time cleaning carpets and hard flooring along with walls and doors.
DIY – DIY jobs have to be completed because buyers will see them as a job they will have to worry about should they purchase your property. Carry out as many repairs as possible and do your best to fix problems such as leaking radiators, cracks or holes in walls and even creaking doors. A perfect property is more likely to attract a quick buyer.
Interior – If your home is full of bright colours it could be slightly overwhelming for buyers so choose to use light, neutral colours where possible. This stands for both the paint or wallpaper and the themes you choose. This work to create further space as well as give buyers the chance to work out how they can add their own touch to your home.
Exterior – The weather can take its toll on your garden so spend a little time putting it right. Pull up any weeds, trim all bushes and trees and remove dead plants. Give the lawn a mow and spend time clearing away rubbish and debris. If possible, wash driveways or paths and even consider cleaning windows.
