A guide to selling your Property

Selling your property can be a bit of a long process at the best of times but it can definitely drag on if you’re not generating enough interest. 
For those of you with your home already on the market or considering selling, we discuss a few steps you can take to get more buyers in the door.

Kerb appeal
This is something that’s important regardless of what season you put your home on the market. First impressions are the key while selling your home, so you need stay on top of maintaining the exterior. 

Keeping driveways and paths as clean as possible is the best start, there is bound to be all sorts of dirt, rubbish and leaves blowing around in the wind so just take a moment to tidy up every now and then. Unfortunately, there isn’t much you can do about the rain but if you do get the opportunity to give the windows a clean then go for it. 

As the sun starts to come out and the wind and rain dies down and the rain eases off we usually tend to remember that our gardens exist. So with the this change in weather its time to pick up the maintenance of your garden. If your home is on the market, a clean-up of the garden can go a long way. This doesn’t mean you have to get out there and begin renovating your garden with new plants and features, but it does mean that the garden has to appear as if it hasn’t been forgotten about since the BBQ in August. The more tidy your garden looks, the better, give anything that’s overgrown a trim and any outdoor furniture that’s been battered by the weather should be removed or replaced.
 
Final touches
As we’ve already established the key to increasing your homes appeal throughout the spring is to keep it clean, tidy and make it feel warm and inviting at the same time. But there are plenty of other little ways to make your home more attractive. 

You should inspect your home for all of those odd jobs like creaky doors and small marks on the wall. A bit of paint and WD40 can do wonders in making your home seem like it’s all in working order. The bigger the list of small fixes for you, is a bigger list of small fixes for the buyer and only adds to the ‘reasons not to buy’ list.
