AGT Property Management – BLOG – Preparing To Sell Your Home In Spring

Before we know it, Spring will soon be here. Many experts believe that this is the perfect time to sell your home. It does offer longer and brighter days, which means more hours for house viewings when your home can look its best. Every spring we see a real surge in buyer interest. This means if you are looking to sell your home in Peterborough this spring – you need to prepare so your home stands out from the others on the market.

First things first, you need to declutter. This will make the home and rooms look larger. Without your personalised belongings the potential buyers will also better be able to see themselves living in your home. By decluttering your home, it will highlight the best features of your home. Less is more when showcasing your home, but it still needs to look like a home.

Never forget that first impressions count. Give yourself 10-15 minutes before each viewing to tidy up the outside of your home. This could mean raking up fallen leaves, a quick bit of weeding or picking up a bit of litter that has blown onto the street. In addition to this, take a look at the front of your home. Could a spot of paint brighten up the front door? What about a hanging basket or a pot plant to make the home feel more welcoming?

Now let’s think about the buyers will see next – as they open the front door, what will they see? It’s a really good idea to have a mirror to spread the natural light around the entrance to your home. This will make the home feel lighter, brighter and more spacious. A bunch of spring flowers or a pot plant will help to freshen the air with their scent. They will also look beautiful, feel welcoming and create that homely feel too. Don’t forget to make sure the front door isn’t stiff too – first impressions count remember!

Make sure that all the rooms in your home are clean and decluttered. Chances are the buyers will look in that cupboard under the stairs or built in wardrobe. Make sure it is clean and tidy, so all areas look their best. What you class as your ‘junk room’ the buyer may want to see as a guest room, study or play room. Think about what a buyer would want from home. How can you create this for them?
