Spring clean to help sell your home

Spring is the time of year when people are more likely to start looking for a new home. The weather gets a little warmer and the evenings are lighter for longer, encouraging buyers to look at properties for sale. If you are planning to sell your home, take these steps to increase the likelihood of a spring sale.

Before you do anything else, you need to get rid of all the clutter around your home. Although you may be happy with ornaments, books and magazines lying around, your home will appear more spacious and will appeal to buyers if you clear the mess.

Once you have removed all the clutter, make sure that you have a spring clean, so that every nook and cranny is clean and tidy. You may also want to replace any old cupboard doors or handles, and give the house a lick of paint to refresh its appearance.

If you have a parking space at your home, leave it free so that the potential buyers can park there, so they know what it would be like to live at that particular house. You may want to consider letting the estate agent show people around your home. Estate agents know which rooms to show first and how to describe the features to their advantage. If this isn’t possible, try to remove pets from the home while viewers are in the house, and even the children and their clutter, so that you aren’t distracted during the viewing.

Professionals like estate agents and CeMAP qualified mortgage advisers are the best people to offer advice on a range of matters when you are moving home.
