If you have decided to move house, then that is so exciting! And now comes the period of time when you need to think about how to best sell up quickly.
After all, the last thing you want is for your property to be sat on the market for months to come, particularly if you find your dream house along the way!
In order to prevent this from happening, there are a few different things that you can do that can put your home in the best stead possible to be sold. They aren’t necessarily expensive nor time-consuming, but they can make the world of difference.
Here are some top things that you can do to get your home ready to sell…
Fix up the little bits around the house
There are probably things around the home that you have been meaning to do for a while but were more than happy to live with, but the new owners probably won’t be!
These jobs could be small and not take long but will instantly improve your home for selling.
Ensure the exterior of your home looks beautiful
While the interior of your house needs to look beautiful, don’t neglect the outside either! Ensure that you tidy up your front lawn, clear your driveway and repaint your front door if it needs it.
The exterior of your home is the first thing that new potential buyers are going to see and while we try not to, many people judge a book by its cover.
By ensuring it looks welcoming, clean and nice, it will give off a much better impression and be more likely to sell.
Get rid of any clutter
While clutter can feel homely to you, it can look messy to others. Clutter can also make it much harder for potential buyers to view themselves living in your space. Try to get rid of this if you can – it is a good excuse for a sort out!
This can end up being a therapeutic exercise for you too and get you in the right mindset that you will be moving house. Organize your things into boxes and tidy these neatly away in a closet or under the bed.
This way it will be easy to unpack when you move yourself and doesn’t make the home look full of boxes.
These are just a few tactics that you can do in order to help sell your house. It is up to you whether you decide to be at home or not when the realtor shows the prospective new homeowners round, just make the right decision for you.
Moving house can be an emotional thing and therefore some people choose to remove themselves completely, while others like to give handy tips and information.
