Top tips for selling your home in 2022

Looking to sell your home in 2022? Maximising your property’s potential can allow you to achieve a faster sale and the best possible price for your home.

Last year, Zoopla property searches saw a 163% increase after Christmas Day, making the New Year, a great time to sell.

 

Make the most of the festive rush with these top tips to help you sell your home for more:

First impressions 

Your home’s exterior can be just as important as the interior. Making the outside of your home look presentable is crucial to potential buyers getting the best first impression possible. Mowing the front lawn or repainting the door can help win buyers over. 

Also, the entrance hallway is the first thing your buyer will see when they enter the house, so adding a rug and some accessories can really brighten up the space. 

 

Lighting 

Lighting is another simple but effective way to make your home more appealing. The correct lighting can make your home seem warm and sunny, as opposed to dark and gloomy. Ensure all lights are working and replace bulbs if needed.

  

Cleaning

Buyers won’t like viewing a dirty house, so doing the washing up, and picking your dirty clothes up off the floor will help your viewer to envision themselves living in their dream home.

 

Avoid clutter

Less is more when it comes to enticing your buyers. Repositioning furniture and packing away unnecessary clutter can create an open, up-to-date space that your buyers can envision themselves living in. 

Alternatively, if any furniture is mismatched or there is vacant space around the property, hiring or borrowing furniture is a great way to improve the look of your home. 

 

Pets 

Experts say that keeping pets out of the house during viewings is a better way to get the most for your home. 

Pet lovers may be distracted by your furry friends, which could result in them being more interested in your pet than your home. On the other hand, pet haters may feel uncomfortable, which could put them off the property. 

 

Following these steps can be a simple way to help buyers fall in love with your home, and make the selling process much easier for you, saving time and money.
