It’s a fairly common-known fact that spring is one of the best times of year to sell a home. The blue skies and green grass make your property look its best and attract potential buyers; while avoiding the busy period of summer – e.g. school holidays.
It’s also the role of supply and demand. The best time to sell, is when there are lots of buyers looking to buy.
So, what are the best ways to maximise the sale price of your property?
Here are our tips:
Make your home attractive by freshening up rooms with a neutral lick of paint and clearing away any clutter – try to make rooms appear as light and airy as possible.
A mirror in a hallway, for example, can create the illusion of space; while taking items off your kitchen worktop will make it seem bigger.
2. Have a spring clean
As well as decluttering, it’s important that your house looks and smells as fresh as possible. If there are general wear and tear marks on your carpet, for example, then consider hiring a professional carpet cleaner to get them out.
3. Sort the garden
Grass grows pretty quickly in spring, so try to mow the lawn at least twice a week. It will instantly lift the appearance on your home, and add kerb appeal. Don’t forget to jet-wash any decks and patio areas too.
4. Choose the right estate agent
There are plenty of brilliant estate agents in Huddersfield, Brighouse and surrounding areas. Choosing one that has proven results within your area, is vital.
Look at other properties they’ve recently sold – especially ones similar to yours – while checking out their marketing techniques.
5. Define a reasonable asking price
Try to get a minimum of three valuations, and look at what other properties on your street have sold for recently. If you go in too high, your property won’t get many viewings and it will stick around on the market for a while – making it appear unattractive.
6. Be flexible for viewings
Spring can be a busy time for many people, so try to be flexible when it comes to allowing potential buyers to view your home – evenings and weekends included.
