Prepare a Home for a Summer Sale
With Summer just around the corner, those looking to hit the property market within the coming weeks must adjust and prepare their homes to sell.
Like Spring, Summer is also known to be a great time to list and sell properties, with the nice weather making our homes brighter and more appealing to potential buyers.
Home sellers that are proactive and would like to get started in preparing their homes can start with opening their windows and letting the breeze in! Buyers are more likely to go for a home that is kept cool, particularly when purchasing during the summer.
The summer heat in the UK can leave buyers uncomfortable and can significantly reduce the price of sale. If your home is built to insulate heat, it might be worth investing in air-conditioning or ceiling fans.
Now, on to the more hands-on tips, which might require help of a home staging professional:
Depersonalising and Decluttering: Buyers are typically geared towards a simple home with no personal pictures, family collectibles and clutter. This is the time to start decluttering your house from all the mess and to prepare it to make a memorable first impression, which should be easy-on-the-eye with higher chances of a quicker sale and at a premium price. Remember: depersonalising it and decluttering allow potential buyers to envision the property as their future home.
Curb Appeal: First impressions are key and a polished curb will place you on the top of the list Take Spring season and as a time to plant flowers, trim trees, and keep your grass looking green and lush. You only have one chance to make a great first impression!
Don't Let Them Forget: Potential buyers tend to spend the entire day viewing homes. In the summer heat, this can be both tedious and frustrating. A small gesture like offering a cold, refreshing glass of water or lemonadewill make your property memorable, differentiating it from other properties they have seen throughout the day. Small gestures, big difference!
