Get your property ready for a spring sale

4 Sep 2017 Forrestfield 0 Comment

Everyone has the potential to sell their property for top dollar, as long as they put in the hard work.

Prepping and staging a home are always of the utmost importance and those that know how to present their property at its best can count on buyers offering up their highest bids.

Here are some tips to get your property ready for your spring marketing campaign.

Start cleaning

Cleaning should be an absolute priority. You need to make your property sparkle from top to bottom. Cleaning before selling should go well beyond your average weekly clean so it may be worth bringing professionals in to help improve your property’s aesthetics. Focus on areas like kitchens, bathrooms and living areas where dirt and grime has a habit of building up over time.

Put items in storage

You want to show your property in its best light so it could be worth storing away some of your items and hiring a professional staging service to bring in items perfectly suited to the property.

Staging can help depersonalise a home, and it helps buyers better imagine themselves in a space.

If you have kids then also have them pack any items they’re not currently using and dispose of unwanted items. This will eventually make the move much smoother as well.

Pay attention to details

Small issues with a property may deter some buyers so if there are any repairs needed at these should be dealt with right away. Check for things like cracked tiles, chipped cupboards, carpet stains or doors that don’t work.

Set the scene

Help buyers fall in love with your property from the get-go by creating a warm and welcoming ambience on the day of open homes. Open up curtains to let in light, get the home at a comfortable temperature and put out fresh flowers. Anything that makes the property feel more fresh and relaxing will help buyers fall in love.
