Pick Your Timing

Holidays, like Christmas and a change in season, can bring a quick sale as buyers want to move in those times to coincide with their holidays. Put some thought into the timing of your sale and reap the benefits.

 

First Impressions Count

A first impression is extremely valuable so making sure that your garden and exterior are ship shape is paramount. Manicured gardens, trimmed edges and green lawns will give a positive first impression upon inspection.

Your front door is also the first thing that potential buyers will see, so make sure you create a welcoming entrance. Paint or replace your door if needed and use plants to frame your entry.

 

Freshen Up

Freshen up any areas in the home that might look tired. A lick of paint can do wonders as can washing curtains and cleaning blinds.

 

De-clutter

This is possibly our most important tip! Create a sense of space and order in your home prior to it going on sale. Hide the pet bowls and get rid of any excess furniture and personal items so the buyer can imagine their possessions and belongings in the space.

 

Set The Scene For Your Inspections

Leave blinds and windows open for inspections of your home to allow for fresh air flow.

The smell of fresh flowers, a scented candle or just brewed coffee are easy tools for creating a homely, welcoming feel. Yellow flowers stimulate buying urges by inducing feelings of happiness and contentment, so look at having a vase of tulips or daffodils on your kitchen table.
