June, 2018

Selling your home can be a tricky task – especially if you want to do it quickly. However, with the right guidance and a few simple tips and tricks, you can easily improve your chances. Sometimes it’s as simple as picking the right time of year or improving your kerb appeal. Keep reading to find out the best ways to make your house sell fast.

Choose the best time to sell

Before you start the process of selling your home, it’s worth considering the time of year.

Spring/summer is traditionally seen as a good time to sell, because the weather is better and the days are longer. This means you can have more house viewings in the evening as there is still great natural lighting. It’s the perfect chance to let your property shine.

The market is also busy with lots of keen buyers, like families trying to buy a home in time for the new school year.

Improve your kerb appeal

To attract those buyers, it’s worth putting in a bit of extra effort to improve the exterior of your home. Why? It’s your chance to make an impact with a great first impression.

The front of your home is what makes up its kerb appeal. And whether it’s tidying the garden or cleaning the driveway, a few simple steps to improve kerb appeal can go a long way. It’s an easy way to make your property stand out against the crowd - for all the right reasons.

Check the condition

It’s not just about the outside though. You need to check the interiors as well. If you want your house to be swept off the market quickly then you should ensure your house is in tip top condition.

This includes fixing any repairs and refreshing each room. Whether it’s a lick of paint or a quick declutter, it helps potential buyers envisage the house as their own. And it could prompt more people to put an offer in sooner.

Try an open house

If you want to sell quickly, try to think outside the box. More and more people are realising the potential of open house viewings.

It allows buyers to easily gauge how much interest there is in your property. When they can see the competition, people are more likely to put an offer in sooner to avoid missing out.

It could even potentially drive up the price if you end up getting more than one offer. Still not sure? Find out more about the pros and cons of open houses.
