Quick ways to spruce up your home before selling

Getting your property ready for sale? Wondering what to do to make it more presentable to buyers?

If you want to impress buyers and help them realise the full potential of your property then it’s crucial to spend a bit of time getting your property in tip-top shape.

Clean and de-clutter

Make your property shine before it hits the market. Clean out every nook and cranny of your house and get everything looking spotless and new again.

Also take some time clearing out old drawers and cupboards of all those things you no longer want and need. The cleaner and more spacious your home feels, the better it’s going to present to buyers.

Get out the paintbrush

If it’s been a few years since your home last saw a fresh coat of paint it could be due for an update.

Paint colours can date very quickly so by repainting you can instantly make your home feel fresh and modern again. Fresh paint colours also show buyers that you have spent some time keeping your property well maintained.

If you decide to repaint your interior, opt for light and neutral shades that also match the character of the house.

Spend some time in the garden

Get outside and cut back overgrown foliage, mow the lawn and rake up leaves.

Make those first impressions count by spending some time making your garden look great. The front garden in particular will help set the tone for what’s inside your property so it’s important that it looks neat and tidy and not overgrown with weeds and plants.

Fix and repair

Even the smallest issues can stand out like a sore thumb to potential buyers and that’s why it’s so important that your property is in perfect shape.

Ensure that everything in your home is working and presentable, and of course safe for visitors, whether it’s something as simple as a leaking tap or a larger issue that needs to be addressed.

Keep in mind that buyers will overestimate the cost to fix any issues with the property so it’s much easier to deal with them before the property goes on the market.

Set the right ambiance

Those final little touches can actually make a big difference to the overall look and feel of your home. Consider adding little decorative items like artwork or indoor plants to help give your home a bit of character and a stylish touch.

Also think about your furniture placement in each room and ensure that it suits the room’s layout and purpose.
