10 Tips to help sell your property

  1.   Take a look at the exterior of your property. Good landscaping can transform the look and feel of your home and help you to achieve a higher price in a shorter time. You can do it yourself or hire a landscaper.
  2.   Make sure any outside lights are working and appear in good order and place some potted plants on either side of the front door. Your front door should be in good condition and painted in a tasteful colour.
  3.   Create a good first impression when a potential buyer enters your home. Paint the entrance hallway in a neutral colour and de-clutter. Make sure all lighting is working and upgrade if necessary.
  4.   Bad lighting can make your home feel dark and small. Ensure all lighting is working and install brighter lights to make your home feel light and larger. This also makes the property feel ‘happier’.
  5.   Paint colour is a very personal choice. Paint throughout with neutral colours, this will allow your buyer to change or customize where they see fit whilst still appealing to the whole market.
  6.   Avoid major renovation works, especially in the kitchen and bathroom. This gives the potential buyer the chance to add their own touch to the property.
  7.   De-clutter the house. You are less likely to impress the potential buyer with a cluttered house. Clear out all clutter and if you don’t have anywhere to put it, use storage.
  8.   Pets – Some people love them, some hate them and some are allergic to them. Pet lovers – will spend more time looking at your pet then your home. Pet haters – will feel uncomfortable and rush round your house. Ensure that pets are out of the house to make the most out of each viewing. Make sure you remove all bowls, baskets/beds and litter trays.
  9.   Rear Garden – Make sure the rear garden looks like a space for entertaining. If needs be buy some inexpensive patio furniture, some potted plants and install some outdoor lighting.
  10.   Clean – Buyers want to see an immaculately clean house. Potential buyers need to imagine themselves living in ‘your’ home, so make sure there are no signs of dirt, washing up waiting to be tackled or clothes on the floor.
