Top tips to get your home ready for sale!

Written by

When you want to sell your home as fast as possible it is essential that you make some preparations before you have potential buyers view the property. So, if you’re ready to, or have already put your house on the market, take a moment to read through some of the tips on this page to set your plan of action.


Tidy that mess!

Buyers will struggle to imagine their family living in your home if you don’t keep as many personal possessions out of the way as possible. In addition, the less clutter and mess, the bigger your home appears! With that in mind, do yourself a favour and spend some time tidying your house. Run the hoover around, polish those units, and ensure you stash all the children’s toys neatly in their bedroom cupboards.


Have your agent do your viewings!

Children and pets can often get in the way when people come to view your house. You should think about letting your agent conduct your viewing for you as this removes the chances of the little ones or animals causing problems or distractions while the potential buyers take a look around.



Complete any repair work!

Nothing puts buyers off more than seeing unfinished repair work in your home and it could discourage buyers from making an offer. Even if you have to employ the services of tradespeople ahead of time – it’s well worth the expense to get those odd jobs finished!


Make the best first impression!

First impressions count. Experts suggest that most human beings form their initial opinion on something within only a few seconds. Considering that, you need to ensure the exterior of your house looks immaculate for the best outcomes.


Other quick tips:

  • Close all the cupboard doors
  • Remove any family photographs
  • Empty the bins
  • Open the curtains
  • Leave the toilet seat down
  • Run the vacuum cleaner round
