The spring selling season is just around the corner and traditionally that that brings buyers out of the woodworks, looking to find their new home by the end of the year.
While property markets can still run hot during the colder months of the year, there’s little question that selling numbers ramp up in the spring selling season and there is a lot more buyers and sellers looking to make their next property move.
If you’re thinking about putting your property on the market this spring, it’s best to get in early. Now is the best time to act because it can take several weeks to get your property ready for sale and you want to make sure that you make the most of the fresh new buyers coming into the market.
Start that spring clean
You can start preparing your property for sale by starting that spring clean as soon as possible.
A few cleaning tips:
- Get rid of any clutter or furniture that brings down your home’s appearance (hiring a storage unit might be worthwhile if you have too much furniture or clutter)
- Wash windows and walls to make the house feel fresh and clean
- Dust in every nook and cranny of the house and remove any cobwebs
- Polish door knobs and taps
- Wash curtains and blinds
- Steam clean carpets to remove any stains
Pay attention to kerb appeal
People tend to pay more attention to gardens and outdoor living spaces as the weather gets warmer. Before putting your property on the market make the effort to mow the lawn and make your garden beds look neat and tidy. It’s also worth doing any odd jobs outside such as fixing loose paling on the fence, dodgy letterboxes, or broken roof tiles.
Present your home at its best so that it stands out amongst other homes in the area and has buyers knocking on the front door.
