5 Tips For Selling Your Home In 2016

The New Year offers you the opportunity to wipe the slate clean and make a fresh start in certain aspects of your life, and this may include moving home.

The housing market is extremely competitive at the moment though, so you’ll have to make a serious effort to make it stand-out and get potential buyers interested.

We have compiled 5 tips to help improve your chances of a quick sale:

1. Add a conservatory

People love to have space. Giving them an alternative location where they can dine or lounge in luxurious surrounds, play with their favourite instrument or work remotely away from the conventional office is likely to appeal.

2. Tidy up the garden

Giving your garden some much needed TLC now will ensure that it looks in fantastic shape once spring and summer come around. The wintry conditions we have been experiencing may have resulted in litter and leaves forming on the surface so clear them away too.

3. Get rid of any clutter

An untidy house will be an instant put off to visitors. Get every family member involved in a collective clear-out with any rubbish thrown away and those items taking up space neatly stored away out of sight.

4. Update your décor

A fashionable décor and colour scheme won’t go unnoticed and could entice those keen to move into a home that needs very little redecoration. Find out what’s currently on trend and employ a professional to do the work.

5. Leave it smelling sweet

Arouse the senses of those who come for a viewing by baking some fresh bread and/or cakes as you’d be surprised at just how much a delicious smelling home can tempt people. A few scented candles dotted around the house will add to the scent.
