Making sure that your home looks its best is an essential part of selling your home – here are four tips to get you a quick sale for a good price…
The kitchen is the focal point of the home for many people so make sure that you spend some time presenting it as well as possible. Get everything clean and washed up, so make sure there is nothing sitting around on the draining board or worse in a mound in the sink! Wipe down all the surfaces as well as the fronts of cupboards and put everything in its place.
Pet Preparation – If you have pets in your home, remember that you should focus a bit on this before you have viewings. Not all potential buyers will be animal lovers, and they may be put off buying a home that has the smell of a dog, or lots of cat hair around the place. Clear up any pet food bowls, give the place a really thorough hoover and get rid of anything that could be making it smell worse, such as a dirty litter tray. If you have pets that are nervous or a bit excited when visitors come over, leave them with a family member or a neighbour whilst you are having viewings.
Declutter – Something that can really put people off a home is the feeling that it is cramped and small or is lacking storage. If you have a lot of clutter in your home then it is a good idea to get rid of the stuff that you don’t need. If you have things that you want to keep but want to create some space, then you can use a facility like this self storage Swindon based company www.anchorselfstorage.co.uk/ to keep your stuff in whilst you are selling the house.
Bathroom Cleaning – Another place that people will want to look at when viewing a home is the bathroom. A good clean in the bathroom is important as this is a room that needs to be hygienic. Give the toilet a really thorough clean and put some toilet cleaner down there to keep it smelling good when people come. Pay attention to small things like taps and mirrors shining as this makes a big difference.
