Selling your property quickly
A quick sale will put a smile on the face of any seller but sometimes things do not go to plan. The housing market is already full of buyers who know what they want so you have to ensure that your property ticks all of their boxes. The tips listed below will help your home meet the expectations of potential buyers.
De-clutter – Selling a home that is full of clutter will get you nowhere. Buyers hate clutter as it stops them from seeing your home in all its glory. Throw away clutter that you no longer need and spend time storing away the rest of it. The idea behind this is to add extra space to your rooms.
Clean – Your home needs to be clean, there is no other way to put this. Ensure that bathrooms and kitchens are sparkling and spend time shampooing and hoovering carpets. Mop hard floors, wipe down walls and doors and polish and also remember to clean windows.
DIY – Complete as many DIY jobs as you possible can, no matter how much you hate it. This will give your buyers less to worry about because they will worry about the smallest of things. Doors that stick, taps that drip and holes in the walls will all cause alarm bells to ring, so do all you can to get them finished.
Interior – Simplicity is king here, this is because neutral colours are vital. These colours will enhance the feel of space while also allowing buyers to see how they can add in their own style. Soft, subtle furnishings will welcome your buyers into your home and make them feel comfortable while mirrors will help to increase light.
Exterior – The weather can really cause problems to the exterior of your property so do all you can to get it looking its best. Ensure lawns are tidy and trim any overgrown bushes or trees. Jetwash patios, driveways and pathways and also clean windows and window frames. If you have time, freshen up fencing and garage doors with a lick of paint.
