In this day and age selling your house quickly and securely can be a complete pain. Here the process has been simplified, and within this guide there is a selection of useful recommendations for you. By following these recommendations you can quickly get cash for your home in the simplest way possible.
Firstly you should aim to remove anything in your house that relates to you; pack your things away especially things related to your hobbies – a buyer wants to imagine them in the house, and your hobbies only serve as a distraction to this. On top of this, you will be preparing to move so this is a must complete step.
Finishing any jobs that haven’t been finished, such as fixing a wire sticking out from a wall or repairing damages around the house can instantly make the difference between your house being bought or not. Imagine looking around a damaged house with little fixes you’ll have to attend to when you move in – no one wants to buy a new house that they have to fix up.
Cleaning is another highly important step. Clean everything – no dirt, dust, nothing. A spotless home is a home someone will buy; it might convince someone that the home is easy to clean increasing their chance of purchase.
Decorate if necessary. Don’t leave your house lingering with horrible colours from the eighties; no one will buy a house like this anymore. If you feel it is necessary to decorate stick to warm and neutral colours – variants of cream and beige work best.
Don’t have an empty house: keep things that would be in a house in the places they should be. A buyer wishes to see themselves living in your property, which is sometimes hard when there are just empty rooms. Renting or borrowing furniture is also a good way to populate your home if you’ve already moved out.
Buying household items that look old, damaged or unusable such as carpets and shower heads will improve the look of your house greatly. It can be greatly off-putting when buying a house if a lot of products look unmaintained. On top of this clean the new products so they sparkle like the surroundings around them.
Ensure the entrance to your house is warm and welcoming; provide a front-garden that looks tameable (if you have one) and make sure your house isn’t covered in old wood or nails from previous accessories. If your house has a number, or a name, make sure that is displayed on the front of the house and looks clean and new to show the buyer that their former residents looked after the home well.
Remove any clutter from your home, toys, washing, old products, unused items and general junk should all be removed or hidden outside the house (in your car, for example – don’t hide items within the house; someone might ask to view the space of the cupboard you’re storing all the junk in). Walking around a cluttered house can really put a potential buyer off as they can’t see what lies behind the junk – or even what the place looks like without all the junk.
