Getting your house on the market to be sold is a tough thing to do. There is so much to consider and your need to change how you see your own home. If you are thinking about putting your house on the market, here are some of the times that you need to consider.
Clearing the garden
The garden is one of the first places that potential buyers will see. And if it is a mess, there is a chance that they will turn and walk away without looking inside. At the very least, pull the weeds and get the driveway cleaned with Pressure Perfect to remove any dirt and grime that makes the place look bad. You might not have time to completely change the front of the house but can make some small improvements to ensure that people are not put off.
Clear away the clutter
The items that sit around your home might be important to you, but they are not to the people who are visiting. Make sure that you have any small items packed away to remove any potential clutter. If this makes you feel uncomfortable, then just remember that this is the first stage of packing things away in order to move. If you are not ready to pack things away, at least clear the counters so that people can imagine their own items there. You don’t have to bin anything, it just needs to be packed away to be moved at a later date.
Lick of paint
If it has been a while since you last decorated the house, you might want to think about adding a lick of paint to the walls. In fact, adding a lick of paint to the ceiling can make a huge difference to a room and can help your house to be sold quicker. If in doubt, ask your estate agent if they think that you should change the decor. They know what has been selling and can advise you if there need to be any changes. And, just remember, sometimes these changes can make a difference of a few thousand when it comes to sale time. If it comes down to it, you could paint the entire house and make a lot more money than without it.
Look for a new home
While it might be exciting that you have a person interested in your own home very quickly, you need to ensure that you have somewhere to move to. Make sure that you have a place in mind or an idea of what you are looking for. Some places are selling very quickly and you might find yourself homeless if your house is one of them. By having a new place picked out, you can also start making some changes and getting rid of the things that you won’t be taking with you when you move. This can make the transition to your new home easier and make it easier to let go of your current home.
