Top Tips to Sell This Summer
We are now in the midst of summer. If your property is on the market and you want to be sure of selling in the next few months here are a few tips:
First impressions matter a lot: the drive should be swept and in good order and hedges cut, the lawns should be green and mowed. Avoid brown patches. Make sure there are lots of flowers in the beds or in tubs or hanging baskets.
Inside, all the rooms should be neat and tidy, and presented to what they are, beds in bedrooms, dining tables and chairs in dining rooms, remove all those boxes and clutter. Make sure there are lots of lovely smells like pot-pourri and clean and open the windows and draw the curtains well back.
Pets should be well out of site and there should be no pet smells.
Lastly, and perhaps the most important tip of all, make sure your house is reasonably priced.
There are now lots and lots of properties for sale and many reports from the last few weeks have indicated prices may be falling. Review the price you are asking and make sure it is going to attract viewers and interest. Only the realistically priced houses are going to sell in the next few months.
