Top tips for presenting your home for sale this Spring!

Mon 25 March 2019

With the clocks set to ‘spring forward’ on March 31st, we recommend using those valuable daylight hours wisely, especially if you’re planning on instructing your property, as the market hots up! As the sunrises later into the morning and the sunsets later into the evening, it is important to remember certain key factors that will enhance your property’s first impressions. Here are some of our top tips:

1.      Declutter & spring clean

This is a standard rule any time you are selling a property. Before marketing photos have been taken, ensure that you have de-cluttered & cleaned through the entire property and removed personal effects and bulky items – buyers need to be able to envisage themselves living there.

2.      Dig out those gardening gloves

Spring is the perfect time to start all your enduring gardening tasks! Although the weather may be brisk, ensure that your property is welcoming from both inside and out by keeping on top of your lawn, tidying up your flower beds and boarders and maintaining fences, gates and trellis.

Don’t forget that fresh flowers in your kitchen can make your property appear more welcoming and look great in marketing photographs

3.      Prepare to paint

If there are walls that have been scuffed over time or the paintwork has faded, repaint in fresh neutral tones to freshen and brighten up rooms.

4.      Think bright and light

After months of miserable weather, the slightest sign of sunshine gets us all excited about the spring… ensure that your property is well lit and bulbs and light fixtures are working. Are there dark spaces which could be improved?
