If you’re struggling to sell your property we’re here to help. Preparing your home for viewers is important and can even increase its value. We’ve put together some helpful tips to help boost your chances of a successful sale.
1. Give Your Home a Spring Clean
Now’s the time to get on top of those annoying maintenance jobs like changing a light bulb or filling in a crack in the wall. You don’t necessarily have to spend a lot of money to ensure your house is appealing to potential buyers, who will likely be nit-picking. Tidy up the clutter, keep the surfaces clear and add a vase of flowers to freshen the place up; it’s the little things that count.
People tend to subconsciously buy into the whole lifestyle as much as the property itself, so make sure you show them the attractive side of your lifestyle. If you’re a smoker or have pets, make sure your house isn’t smelly by opening some windows or lighting a scented candle.
2. Increase Your Property’s Kerb Appeal
Potential buyers will form opinions of your home before they’ve even walked through the door. Make sure they have a great first impression by sprucing up the exterior with a little DIY. Consider painting your front door or your garden fence to brighten things up and keep the lawn nice and tidy by moving anything unsightly out of view.
3. Stay Out of the Way
Choose a good estate agent and allow them to show the property; it’s their job to know all of the right and wrong things to say. Allow your potential buyers to take their time roaming freely and comfortably around the property without your preying eyes. You can always answer any questions they may have once they’ve had a thorough look around.
