Looking to sell your house? We know how stressful it can be and the stress of trying to make everything perfect. We are not going to lie, it is stressful, but the good news is that we have put together a few of our top tips of things to consider to hopefully make the process a little less stressful for you.
It’s Time for a Deep Clean
It’s time to clean everything. Yes, we are talking about the skirting boards that have never been dusted or the stair rail that has not been wiped down in forever. Having one big deep clean will also help you to make small touch-ups here and there in case of any last-minute viewings.
It’s Time for a Touch-up
If you have ever bought a house, you will know that buyers will look at everything, and we mean everything. Who can blame them, it is a big investment after all. We often stop noticing the small details which could make or break a sale. For example, a chip in the paint or a spec of mould on the bathroom sealant.
It’s Time to Declutter
Nothing makes a room look small more than clutter. Whether you have too many clothes to fit in your wardrobe or too many books on your bookshelf, maybe you have too much furniture. The point is, clutter makes a room look smaller, which makes your house look small. The bigger a house looks, the more value your buyers will see for their money. Now we are not telling you to go and throw everything out but a simple rule of thumb, if it doesn’t have a place then you should throw it.
It’s Time for an Air Freshener
If a potential buyer comes to view your home, it is probably going to put them off if there is an awful or unpleasant smell. Living in your home every day you might not notice an unpleasant smell, so, ask a friend or family member if they have noticed any smells. Now is the time to fix any unpleasant odours. Just adding an air freshener and opening the window can help circulate out unpleasant smells and replace them with nice ones.
It’s Time to Move Things Around
We talked about decluttering to make your rooms look bigger, well another way to do that is to position your furniture appropriately. Cramming lots of furniture into one corner of the room can make it look like the room is not big enough to fit it all properly. Instead, make sure that your furniture is spaced out to help potential buyers visualise how they can utilise the space for themselves.
