Once you have made the decision to sell, you need to disassociate yourself from the house… it is no longer ‘your’ house, but something that you want to sell, easily, quickly and for the best possible price. There are lots of tips out there, and people such as Phil Spencer, the British property Expert, (http://www.philspencer.tv/) have lots of advice. To make it easier for you, we’ve put the best of these tips into this simple guide. We hope you find it useful.
Chances are that any prospective buyers will explore the area first, so that even before they book viewings they will have seen the outside of your house. This means that the first thing you need to do is ensure you maximize the ‘kerb appeal’ of the property, to attract their interest.
No matter how much you love your ornaments, they will make a space feel smaller, so pack them away in boxes in the loft or in storage.
You want the potential buyer to imagine themselves living in the house, so pack away photos, striking art pieces and posters from the walls.
It’s essential that your property is in a good state of repair.
Make sure your property is tidy and sparkling clean.
