10 Things To Do Before Putting Your Home On The Market

The Spring and Summer are a great time to put your home on the market and our books are busy with people looking for properties to buy.

If you are thinking of selling, here are some handy tips before you do:

1. Declutter your belongings.
2. Face those small maintenance jobs you have been meaning to do.
3. Do a thorough deep clean.
4. Think about room layouts and aesthetics – are you showing your home in the best possible light? 5. Think about walls and floors – are they as smart as they could be?
6. Focus on making the home light, bright and odour free – replace light bulbs, clean mirrors, replace air fresheners and invest in little touches like fresh flowers and candles.
7. The heart of the home – the kitchen is the most valuable room in your property so focus on making this as inviting as possible.
8. Pre-empt any questions that potential buyers may have and know the answers / find relevant paperwork.
9. Decide in advance what fixtures and fittings you will keep / take.
10. Enlist the professionals – find an agent in your local area and start talks with a recommended conveyancer.
