SELLING YOUR HOME ??
Here are a few tips to increase your chances of success:
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Buyers decide in the first few minutes whether they are interested or not. So, tidy up around your house, mow the lawn and place flower baskets at your door.
If parking is scarce, move your own car and leave space for the potential buyer to park.
DE-CLUTTER every room. This will have the biggest impact as a tidy home appears bigger.
Pack away seasonal items (clothing, decorations, toys) and store in garage or attic.
Pack away most of your personal items (photographs, trophies, collections). These will only distract the buyer.
Clearly DEFINE THE USE of each room. Each Bedroom should have a bed in it and the dining area should have a table and chairs! Limit multi-function rooms to one.
Give everything a good CLEANING. Scrub surfaces, especially the bathrooms and kitchen, and hoover and wash all floors. Don’t have laundry lying around, clean or dirty!
Put new or freshly ironed linen on the beds. Open the curtains to let in the maximum amount of light. In kids rooms, remove all wall art.
Make sure the dishes are washed and stacked away. Counters should be totally cleared.
Ensure there are NO LINGERING FOOD SMELLS in the kitchen! This really turns people off. Open the windows instead. Fresh air is good.
Paint or TOUCH UP PAINT where necessary. Light colours give the feeling of more space.
Complete unfinished jobs. Fill those holes, glue back the wallpaper, repair broken glass.
Place fresh flowers in sitting room and hallway.
During a viewing organise family or friends to mind the children and pets. Tidy all toys away and move cat litter box and food bowls outside.
Point out the ADVANTAGES OF YOUR HOUSE and your area: friendly neighbours, schools and shops nearby, social clubs, public transport, sport facilities, pubs and cinema, etc.
If your house is on the market longer than expected, ASK QUESTIONS: Is the asking price too high? Or, is something else stopping the sale? Your auctioneer should have some answers. Keep an open mind; what they tell you, you might not like to hear!! But it is valuable information. Replacing carpets or kitchen cabinets might cost a view Euros, but if it is stopping you from selling your home or getting your price, it might be worth considering!
