How to Secure the Snappy Sale of Your Home This Spring

In this two-minute read, we look at ways to prepare your home for a successful spring sale (part one of a two-part article).

Are you planning put your home on the market in the next few months? If yes, then now is the time to spring into action (see what we did there?).

Traditionally, the property market booms in springtime since many buyers and sellers opting to wait out the winter. Then, make their move when the days start to get longer and warmer. 

Moreover, since spring just a few weeks away, we’ve compiled a list so you can prepare your property for sale.

This article covers the first five points for home spring sale (and stay tuned for part two next week).

Have a spring clean

Now is the time to have a good clear out. Prospective buyers are looking for a home that they can make their own and will find piles of bric-a-brac a turn-off. And don’t just focus on the living areas and bedrooms. Declutter the bathroom and remove cleaning and beauty products from view.

General maintenance

Is your home looking a little tired after a year of pandemic living? Freshen up the walls with a lick of paint and do all the odd jobs – like clearing the gutters – that you’ve been putting off.

Get an expert valuation

The property market has been the subject of all sorts of headlines during the past year. Furthermore, when you speak to an expert, you won’t have a realistic picture of the AREA housing market and what you can expect to get for your property.

Think about presentation

Put yourself in the shoes of a prospective buyer and imagine how they might make use of your property. Perhaps the spare room you use for a home gym would be more appealing if presented as a home office? Speak to an estate agent for advice. Ask them about how to present your home so you can maximize your asking price.

Get planting

People are craving outdoor space and access to nature. That’s why it is important to give them what they want! Plant colorful flowers at the front and back of your property for immediate impact. If you don’t have a garden, use plant pots to create interest.
