Spring is approaching and with spring cleaning on people’s minds, it is also a time many decide to sell their home. If you’re selling for the first time or it has been a long time since you last did, we understand there are many aspects to unravel.

To start you off on your selling journey, we’ve compiled a list of tips to think about and what you should look out for before putting your property on the market. All these factors are important but often overlooked, so keep them in mind to help speed up the sale of your home, attract the right buyers and achieve the best price.

  • Declutter

A good first step is to create space and declutter rooms in your property so buyers can envision living there. Getting rid of clutter and unnecessary mess can really brighten and open up space. This includes the piles of old letters sitting on the counter top or childrens’ toys lying around which are no longer played with.

  • Doors & walls

How are these looking? Do they need a new lick of paint? These are instantly noticed upon viewing a property, so you want to make sure these look their best. If there are any damp or mould, it’s best to get these sorted out.

  • Front door

First impressions are very important so take a look at the front door and the area around it. Make sure it’s tidy and anything that doesn’t need to be there is removed, or if it’s looking worn, like a doormat, get it replaced.

  • Garden

If your home has a front and back garden these should be giving off the same impression as the inside of your home. Tidy and trim any bushes, flowerbeds or trees. Don’t forget any gates or fences too, check if they need refurbishing or repaired.

  • Odours

Think about letting fresh air into your home by opening windows. Smells from pets or other odours can put off prospective buyers or give off a bad impression. To add a nice scent to your home you can make use of air freshener plug ins or diffusers.

  • DIY

Are there certain areas around the house that have been on your DIY list for a good while? It’s now time to get those bits and pieces fixed or done up in time for selling.

  • Clean

A good scrub of the place is essential before viewings. The little spaces and areas you may not usually clean such as drains, skirting boards and door frames all count. It will help make your property shine!

  • Try not to leave it empty

Buyers will want to envision the property as a home and what it would be like living there. If you have already moved out, try to leave some furniture to give it that homely feel.
