Tips for Selling Your House

Posted on April 15, 2016 by W.H.Cox

Sometimes the market’s sluggish, but at other times there’s no clear reason why you’re house isn’t coming off the market. Your life feels like it’s in limbo and it’s incredibly frustrating. But are there things you could be doing to improve the situation? The answer is a resounding yes! So it’s time to feel empowered and start doing them. Here we present just a few of the steps you can take to make your house sell. Why not try them and see just how effective they are.

 

Painting

Revive tired, listless rooms with a quick coat of paint, opting for a neutral-ish colour that isn’t excessively individual but which allows viewers to overlay their own imaginations on to the room. By choosing a neutral colour, it’ll also allow for any kind of furniture to work well in the room, meaning viewers will perceive your house as somewhere they could move into immediately. Don’t leave out the front door – giving this a facelift with fresh paint will mean that prospective buyers are immediately greeted by a smart, appealing vision.

Brightness and ethereality

Make corridors and rooms come to life with the judicious use of mirrors. They have a transformative effect, especially on the more petite areas of the property. Think ‘brightness’ and ‘lightness’ as you go from room to room, cleaning the windows and awakening dark recesses with free-standing lamps. Prospective buyers will enjoy how soothed they feel without necessarily being able to put their finger on why.

Prettify

If you were going on a date and keen to make a good first impression, wouldn’t you spruce up your physical appearance and put on good clothing? In much the same way, your house needs titivating before it gets presented. Attractive throws on sofas, plants and vases of flowers, clean, sparkly windows, bowls of fruit – all these things accessorise your rooms and make them more good-looking.

Mending

The last thing you want is a persistently dripping tap in the kitchen, mould or damp patches on ceilings, broken bathroom tiles, peeling-off bathtub sealant or cigarette burns on a carpet. Mend, repair and fix all of this before anyone sets foot within.

Cleaning

It stands to reason and yet still it needs stating – cleanliness is next to saleability. From corner to corner and top to bottom, clean, clean, clean. Every room gets an instant upgrade when it’s been thoroughly cleaned and a freshness
