Top Tips to sell your home effectively

The little things can make a big difference when it comes to selling a property and minor changes can have a positive impact on how a buyer views your property.

  • A clear pathway, clean front door and well maintained garden will instantly make your property more appealing, it's the first thing your potential buyer will see and first impressions can make or break a sale.
  • Redecorating tired and chipped paintwork can really brighten a home and make it feel fresh and well looked after. Don't forget the hallway!
  • Make any minor repairs you've been putting off, such as a broken fence panel or dripping tap and replace any dead light bulbs.
  • Clean, sparkling windows can drastically alter the appearance of a property, clean windows also let a lot more light in.
  • Declutter your home so potential buyers can imagine the space with their own belongings.
  • Make effective use of your space, so get rid of that junk room. Many people have trouble visualising a space.
  • Try to keep your house clean and tidy all the time while it is on the market as you could get a request for a viewing at any time. Make sure beds are make, bathrooms are clean, kitchen surfaces are clear and laundry is put away
  • And lastly, banish smoke or pet odours and avoid cooking anything with a strong odour (such as fish or curry) before a viewing as the smell can linger.
