Selling your property quickly
Achieving a quick sale is hit and miss as sellers have to wait for the right buyers to come along. This means that a property could sell in days or it could take months, it is all relatively unknown, however, homeowners can follow the tips below to ensure that their home looks it absolute best.
De-clutter – Whatever you do, do not have clutter in your home as this will turn buyers away. Do all you can to get rid of as much clutter as possible whether that is throwing it away or storing it away. Clear window sills and shelving to create as much space as you can.
Clean – Give your home a deep clean from top to bottom. This means steam cleaning and shampooing carpets and hard flooring. Spend time cleaning hobs, ovens, toilets, baths and showers to bring your kitchen and bathroom back to full cleanliness as they can become dirty. Clean windows and dust all furniture.
DIY – Do your utmost to finish those DIY jobs you never go around to finishing. Regardless of how small the job may be it is important to get it done, even something as small as fixing a loose letterbox that knocks in the wind. These are jobs that buyers will not want to take on so they could hold back on making an offer.
Interior – Give your home a fresh look by repainting in neutral colours and tones. This will help to accentuate space while also giving buyers the opportunity to see what colours they can add to your home in order to make it feel like it is theirs. Keeping things simple is key, so avoid bold colours and furnishings.
Exterior – Spend time working on the exterior of your property. Start by making sure the lawns look good and then look to repaint fences, garage doors and even your property. Clean windows and frames and clear driveways, patios and pathways of any dirt or moss. Add some colourful plants or flowers to inject a bit of life into your garden.
