top tips for selling your home...
1. DE- CLUTTER
You know what they say, PRESENTATION, PRESENTATION, PRESENTATION, so spending a little time arranging furniture and putting any clutter away will maximise the space in each room helping to present your property to its fullest potential.
2. SPRING CLEAN
Unless a buyer is looking for a property that needs lots of work, a nice clean house has far more appeal, so spending time ensuring your house is spotless for viewings will definitely go a long way in helping buyers envisage themselves living in your home.
3. THE HEART OF YOUR HOME IS THE KITCHEN
We can’t emphasise enough the importance of having a de-cluttered, functional, clean fresh kitchen as this is often the main focal point of every home, getting this room right is so important if you want to help buyers fall in love with your home.
4. SORT THOSE BASIC REPAIR JOBS THAT YOU HAVE BEEN PUTTING OFF
Doing those little jobs will again help with the presentation of your property when buyers are viewing. A lick of paint and replacing any worn out flooring where needed will always help give a fresh feel to your home.
5. CREATE KERB APPEAL
The front of your property is the first thing buyers see, whether it be online or when they pull up outside your property, so anything that you can do to make it look as appealing as possible is always well worth the effort. Cut the lawn, trim the hedges, jet wash drives and give it a general tidy and de-clutter and remember plants and hanging baskets always make a property look more inviting and homely.
6. PET ADVICE
We know how important our pets are to us, however not everyone are fans of our furry friends and our furry friends are not always fans of our viewers. It’s always best to keep them out the way and try to mask any smells if possible.
7. CREATE THE RIGHT AMBIENCE
A lovely scented property can really help create the right feel for when buyers are viewing your home, so try to create the right ambience with perhaps scented candles, diffusers or a bowl of pot pourri to help them feel more relaxed.
8. HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY
Being as honest as possible with your buyers when their asking questions is always the best policy, it creates a stronger sale and saves a lot of trouble in the long run.
