Bedford Estate Agents | Selling Tips
There are lots of things you can do to make sure your house sells for the best possible price. Always remember your house is competing against other properties in the local area. Follow our essential tips and you are bound to impress buyers and kick off with a flying start.
1. Kerb appeal – 1st impressions count
Don’t focus all your efforts on the inside; remember that first impressions are created as prospective buyers approach the building.
2. Clean your house from top to bottom, inside and out
Get rid of the clutter and your house will look bigger. It will feel to buyers like a tidy, well-ordered place to live – Just what they want!
4. Create an appealing social environment
It’s not always about de-cluttering; sometimes the opposite is required, installing new furniture to give prospective buyers an impression of how they would live in the property.
5. Define the use of each room with character
Make sure each room is kitted out for the purpose it is intended for – so bedrooms should look like bedrooms and not store rooms.
6. Do basic repairs
Go through each room and do any minor jobs you can see that would improve the finish at little expense, such as touching up paintwork, filling cracks etc...
7. Redecorate but depersonalise
Bright, neutral, clean and uncluttered properties are most appealing to the broadest range of prospective buyers.
8. Don’t over spend!
Every property has a ‘ceiling’ price according to its location, size and age. So spending £20,000 on a kitchen does not necessarily mean your property value will immediately increase by £20,000.
