5 top tips to help your home sell quickly

It may seem obvious but before you think about putting your property on the market it is always a good idea to ensure it’s looking its best so it will catch the eye of any potential buyers. 

Here are some of our quick, easy and relatively low-cost top tips for autumn…

1.    Front door. First impressions really do count and your front door will be one of the first things any potential buyer will see, so make sure it is looking its best. Repaint if necessary and update any outside lights to make sure they work, and are warm and inviting.

2.    Carpets can create a great first impression, so ensure they are clean and spot free. Powdered carpet cleaners are quick to use as they can be hoovered up, they leave a fresh, clean smell and there's no lengthy drying process involved.

3.    Clean everything until it sparkles. Buyers will expect to see a clean home when on a viewing so remove any signs of limescale (we’ve heard vinegar or lemon juice are perfect for this) and use an old toothbrush to reach those small spaces. Polish those taps and clean and repair tile grout!  Consider waxing any wooden floors to leave a shiny surface.

 

4.    Declutter. Now is the perfect time to rid yourself of all the excess ‘bits & bobs’ you have accumulated over the years. The general rule of thumb is if you haven’t used it or worn it in the last year, you don’t need it. Go on, be brave!

 

5.    Fresh lick of paint. Giving your walls a fresh lick of neutral coloured paint will make your home seem lighter and brighter, and will enable any potential viewers to imagine themselves living there and putting their own stamp on the property.
