Check out our 8 tips for selling your home in 2020!

 

  1. Price
    It is vital to have a correct value on your property – if your property is valued too high you will not receive many viewings and if your property is valued too low you will not receive enough money for your property.
  2. Curb appeal
    You can only make one first impression, and people usually form their first impression within the first 30 seconds of a viewing. How about planting some flowers in your front garden, weed, pick up leaves, repaint your front door or buy a brand-new neutral doormat.
  3. Clean
    Spring Clean your house from top to bottom before putting on the market. Clutter makes the homes seem smaller and disorganized.
  4. Fix
    Got a dripping tap or a cracked tile? These will send the wrong message to potential buyers. Getting all problems fixed before you put your house on the market is a smart idea.
  5. Pets
    Always keep your pets under control. Confining them to a specific area during viewings, or better still take away with you. Although you may love your pets, they can be off-putting to other people.
  6. Lighting
    Make sure you have adequate lighting in every room, use subtle mood lighting such as lamps to create the right atmosphere in each room and check all your bulbs work!
  7. Accessories
    By using the right accessories, you can enhance your rooms. Use mirrors to reflect light and space and use plants and fresh flowers to bring life to rooms and add a natural fragrance.
  8. Get Out
    Leave the property before the perspective purchaser arrives. The purchaser is more likely to relax if the home owner is not listening to their every word, also the perspective purchaser will give a more honest account to the estate agent of what they see if the home owner is not there.
