Preparing your house to sell this Spring

As we prepare to turn our clocks forward 1 hour and enter British Summer Time at 1 am on Sunday 31st March 2019.  The evenings will become lighter and it should feel that spring is on its way.

A perfect time to spring clean and de-clutter our homes.  Recycle the items you no longer want or need they may be useful to someone else.

Allow light into your property, clear window sills and open the curtains and windows, refreshing your home.

Kitchen and bathrooms sell houses!  So concentrate on de-cluttering, clear work surfaces and give them a good clean and sparkle, even a coat of paint if needed.

Some ideas to stage your property ready for photos and viewings:

Kitchen – Bowl of fruit, home baking

Lounge – Nice cushions, magazines, flowers

Dining Room – Laid table, flowers

Bathrooms – Nice toiletries, new towels

Bedrooms – Nice bedding

Make sure your home smells nice by opening windows, using candles, bring the outdoors in with spring flowers providing both colour and scent, even baking makes lovely homely smells.

Don’t forget the outside of your property, kerb appeal is crucial, remove cars, bins, bikes from the front of your property.  Your front and back gardens are great selling points, especially if they are of a good size, so mow the lawn, sweep the path, spruce up your garden and wash your windows.

You are now prepared for photos, they are the first impression buyers see before making a viewing, so make them count!
