Are you looking to put your house on the market this year? Are you trying to get a head start on what needs to be done to get it ready for viewings and attracting buyers? It can be daunting, particularly if you are new to the housing market. In the following post we will look at some top tips that will not only help you sell your home much quicker, but possibly for even more than you may have thought.
Remember That First Impressions Are Crucial
When it comes to deciding whether they like or dislike a property, the vast majority of prospective buyers form their opinion based on their first impressions in the first moments they walk in through the front door. Take the time, therefore, to tidy and clean-up the exterior of your home. You can do this by giving your front door a fresh coat of paint and/or varnish, weeding the garden, trimming your bushes and trees and planting flowers. Also pay close attention to the furniture on your front door and if it is supposed to shine, make sure it does. If there is a pathway leading to your front door, make sure this is clean and tidy too.
Spring Clean Your Home From Top To Bottom
Tidiness and cleanliness are two things that can not be underestimated when it comes to putting your home on the real estate market. So it is important to clean absolutely every room in your house from ceiling to floor. Particularly in the high-impact rooms such as the kitchen and bathroom, you need to ensure that all the surfaces are cleaned thoroughly and that the floors are too. A floor that sparkles will make a look even more appealing and because you have spent an appropriate amount of time on cleaning your home it will have a fresh and attractive smell.
Fix And Repair It
Have you got a cracked tile or two in your bathroom or kitchen? Or perhaps you have a dripping tap in your sink? If so, failing to get these fixed will send negative messages to any potential buyers that view your home. Along with correcting issues like those two, you should replace any damaged carpeting, flooring and remove any sealant that has seen better days. Basically, correct all those little issues that add up to major problems when you are trying to sell your home and your home will shine all the more as a potential investment for buyers.
Declutter, Declutter, Declutter
It cannot be emphasised enough how important the process of decluttering your home is if you are serious about trying to sell it and get a decent price. Clutter will never sell your home and will make it feel disorganised and smaller than it actually is and actually could be. Spend time removing as much clutter as you possible can, to help show buyers the potential of rooms and your house overall.
Keep Everything Neutral
Neutral colours are a tried and tested for selling your home because they don’t put potential buyers off. They can view your home and see themselves living in it and putting their own personality into it. It may even mean that you have to paint your entire house white, which might take a while, but in the end, it will be worth it.
The above tips are all used regularly to help homeowners sell their properties. If you still feel you need extra help, you should contact Newington Estates to see exactly what they can do to sell your home fast and for a great price.
