Tips for selling your home this Spring
With the weather hotting up and spring flowers and trees in bloom; now is the time to use the abundance of the beautiful flora and fauna to help sell your home. Freshly-cut flowers add an instant spring feeling and lovely aroma, whilst bright flowerbeds and hanging baskets can give your property that extra curb appeal.
It’s also the perfect time for spring cleaning and de-cluttering, to make your home feel airy, light, and spacious. Simple things like rearranging your furniture, can give viewers the impression of space and when it comes to accessories, less is always more.
Spread the word by telling family, friends, neighbours and local businesses that you’re selling. Social media is also a great FREE marketing tool, including Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook, so use them to your advantage. You never know where an unexpected buyer might spring from!
Be sensible about the value of your property, don’t just opt for the highest valuation, it might be tempting, but if your property is still on the market months later, it has cost you money.
Finally, check you have the title deeds and (if you’ve made any changes to your home) planning consents and certificates. The wrong time to start looking for them is when you’ve sold the property. “Apart from anything else,” says Howard Elston of Aylesford International, “delays in the legal process are the most common reason for properties not selling, and can give a buyer time to change their mind.”
