One of the most common questions vendors ask love2move is “What should I do to sell my house fast?”
Whilst there are a number of things that need to fall into place to complete a quick property sale, with a bit of preparation you can easily boost the appeal of your house and sell your home fast.
Read on for love2move’s top property sales tips and help buyers quickly fall in love with your home:
Create kerb appeal: stand out for the right reasons
Potential buyers often drive by a house they are interested in before booking a viewing, so it is important your property stands out for the right reasons. Estate agents refer to this first impression as “kerb appeal.”
It may sound obvious but don’t forget to clean the windows, tidy away the bins, sweep the driveway and maintain the garden. You may also like to consider adding seasonal flowers in hanging baskets or plant pots to make your house front even more presentable. It can be the subtle details that help make your home memorable.
Dress to impress: de-clutter and clean your home
All the rooms in your home need to be prepared to impress viewers. A great way to start is to clear out any clutter and pack away personal items in readiness for moving home. De-personalising your home can help make it easier for buyers to imagine themselves living in your house.
Next, consider who your target market is and make your home appeal to them. This is often referred to as “dressing” or “staging” and will present your property to the best of its ability. For example, if your property is a family home, you could set the dining table as if it were going to be used for a family meal.
Don’t under estimate the welcoming and lasting impression a warm, clean and fresh smelling home can have. So dust, polish, mop and hoover before each viewing. If time and budget allows, you may like to consider hiring a professional cleaner to help deep-clean your home in preparation for it going on the market.
Price your property accurately
If you want to sell your home quickly, it is important to agree an asking price that will appeal to buyers in the current housing market.
There are many factors impacting the value of your home for help setting an accurate property price for an efficient sale, it’s worth getting different estate agents to appraise your home. Be sure to consult with qualified and experienced property agents who has sold properties in your street. A good estate agent should also be knowledgeable about your local area and be able to help you secure a swift sale. For example, they may already have a number of people registered with them looking to buy a property like yours.
