When selling your home its important to keep these things in mind…

  • Ensure you have undertaken thorough and objective research on what your property is worth.
  • Be realistic on your sale price- we understand that you have a sentimental connection to your home and you have spent time and money on it, this is why it is important to do research on similar properties in your area to give you a guideline on pricing ranges.
  • First impressions count! Whether it’s a lick of paint on your front door or some statement pots either side of it, first impressions really do count. Never underestimate the power of street appeal and go that extra mile to make a great first impression on prospective buyers. Drag out the high-pressure hose on the driveway to remove oil stains, and trim bushes or hedges in your front garden, mow the lawns and ensure the weeds are gone!
  • De-clutter your home- put away any objects that don’t really need to be on display, this ensures that buyers can get a clear idea of room space, how it flows from one room to another without any unnecessary distractions. Simple things such as removing magnets and paper work from your fridge can create the illusion of a larger clean space, or taking extra nick-nacks off the coffee or bed side tables can make a lot of difference. It can pay to store a couple of larger, non-essential furniture items to make your home feel more spacious.
  • Present your property so its highlights are showcased and buyers can inspect without distraction.
  • Repairs and maintenance -Whether it’s that tap that’s been leaking for the past couple of months or some touch up work that’s needed on the paint front, now is the time to get onto repairs and maintenance around your home in anticipation of selling.
