5 tips for selling your home this summer

Summer is the perfect time to be selling your home! The sun will be shining and everyone will be smiling. Even the statistics improve too, a home sells for 3 percent more than what they do in Winter.

There are many ways to increase the sale price of your home. Check out some of our tips that you could use to sell your property for the best price.

Make sure you know your target audience
The most important part of selling your house is to aim it at the people who you think are best suited to it. This is good to know, as it can make the selling process go smoothly. Always remember that your estate agent will be able to give you guidance and advice at any time. When you know who your target audience is, you can dress your rooms to the correct style for your buyers.

Less is more
Whenever a possible buyer is looking around your home, they will want to be able to imagine living there. Before you have any people viewing your home, you must ensure that every room is spotless and every piece of furniture is in place. The less there is means the more the buyer can visualise in their mind of how they would live there.

A clean house means better sales
Buyers could be put off when your home is shown if it isn’t looking its best. Before you have anyone view your home, check that every room is as clean as possible. Make sure the kitchen units are clean, the floors have been hovered and no rubbish is laying around. All those points can potentially increase your selling price.

Prepare for viewings
The presentation of your home plays a massive part when trying to sell it. You must make sure that you impress the potential buyer. Even by doing something as small as, buying a new bunch of flowers to brighten up the room. You could even ask a friend to check about the position you currently have your furniture in, as it is good to get another perspective.

Natural decoration
You must bear in mind that not every buyer is going to like your style, or the current decoration in your house. It is much easier for a buyer to view a house with neutral colours on the wall as bold colours are not everyone’s choice and can make a room look smaller than it actually is.

These five tips can help you sell your home in the most efficient way.
