First impressions are key as they impact a buyer’s decision, so it’s vital your property is well looked after and cared for from the outside. For example, a front door can say a lot about the rest of your home. Make sure you’ve applied a new lick of paint or give it a quick wash as this can help improve the overall look and feel of your property.
Keep it neutral
Potential house buyers will have varied taste in décor and when they’re looking around your home they have to be able to imagine themselves living there. Any bright colours can be off putting, so keeping colours neutral will make the property more appealing.
Consider giving your kitchen a quick freshen up! By giving the cabinets a lick of paint, or replacing the doors and handles, this will instantly make the room more attractive.
Fresh air and light
No one likes a room that smells, understandably this would be a major turn off for some buyers. It’s important to open windows well in advance of any viewings, particularly those in rooms that are rarely used. Maintaining a good level of light in your home can make the space feel inviting. The summer is the best time for natural light, so make sure all blinds and curtains are wide open.
A nice garden can give your home the wow-factor, especially during the summer months when many beautiful flowers and plants are in season. For starters, it’s important to make sure your garden is tidied of any litter, the grass is cut, weeds are removed, and overgrown trees are cut back. You could even try potting some bright coloured plants to make the space more attractive.
