Figures show that spring is the best time of year to sell your house. This is most likely because people aren’t away for the summer holidays or busy with Christmas celebrations. Another great thing about spring is that your home will look better when the garden is coming into bloom and the sun is out for longer.
So, here’s what you need to do before the “For Sale” sign goes up:
Have you ever noticed how all the best-looking house photoshoots have very little in them? This minimalistic approach has a purpose: it reduces distraction.
Maintaining a clutter-free environment allows visitors to focus on the space rather than the contents. Daily objects such as the ever-growing pile of letters on the notice board, and shoes kicked off by the door should be removed.
Make sure coats aren’t thrown over the banister and you’ll be on the right track for a sale.
Improve Your Lighting
Don’t overlook the importance of lighting. Open your blinds and curtains, add lots of floor and table lamps to rooms that could use extra lighting. Letting the spring light into your home will make your rooms seem larger than dull and gloomy ones. These are all simple ways to make your home more appealing to your viewer.
Enhance Kerb Appeal
First impressions are crucial to preparing your property for sale. Creating the perfect home will allow your viewer to envision themselves in your property.
It’s just as important to improve how your house looks from the outside as it is to improve how it feels once you’re inside, yet this is often disregarded. Make sure the front garden is weeded, your flower beds are looked after, and ensure your windows are clean and your front door looks welcoming. These small improvements will have a big influence on your buyers.
Clean Your Home
The value of a clean home is unchanged. Clean homes are easier to sell, so cleaning your home from top to bottom, is vital to an easy sale.
Hiring professional cleaners is also a good idea if it is in need of proper attention. Smells from carpets, sofas, and curtains may ruin your viewing, so do everything you can to make your home shine.
