Prepare Your Home for Sale
First impressions are very important as research has shown that prospective purchasers will form an opinion within thirty seconds of drawing up outside your property, so make sure your garden and the approach to your house is tidy. A well kept garden usually looks larger and a fresh coat of paint on your front door can work wonders. Remember it is the first thing a viewer sees.
Buyers need to picture themselves living in your property so de-clutter and try to make the place as neutral as possible.
Keep It Clean
We know it sounds obvious but try to make sure your home is clean throughout. Not only will this make it more immediately attractive but it will also reassure prospective buyers that it has been well maintained in other respects.
A well-aired room and fresh flowers can make a room feel more welcoming, as can a warm home in winter.
Ensure that you have all your paperwork to hand, such as planning permissions, building regulations, insurances and any other paperwork relevant to the sale.
