Take the timeWhether you are going away in the Summer, or staying home, if you are looking to sell your property later in the year it’s worth spending some time on getting it ready.
Tidy up and a lick of paintGeneral cleaning and refreshing any paintwork will help make it more attractive to buyers. It’s the little things that count.
Look Around Your HomeTry and put yourself in the viewers perspective, walk around all the rooms and take a look from the outside. Make a list of everything which needs organising, set yourself a feasible budget and get to work.
Make things light and brightMake sure your hallways are bright and welcoming. Light neutral shades are great for giving your potential buyers a blank canvas to make their own stamp on the property.
Clean skirting boards and dust away cobwebs. Check all your lightbulbs are working, replace with LED for better efficiency, and add mirrors to help bounce light around a dark space.
Clear clutterDeclutter as much as possible! No one likes walking into an unused room, piled high with old furniture and boxes, with no definitive use.
Get organisedOrganise your paperwork, buyers will appreciate an indication how much the energy bills are, and your council tax costs.
Don’t forget outsideIf you have a garden or outside space cut your grass, remove weeds, jet wash patios, and add extra gravel on driveways. Brighten the spaces with plant pots.
