Quick Fixes for Quick Sales from haart Estate Agents
The haart estate agency group is advising property owners wanting to sell their homes in current market conditions to make sure their property stands out from the crowd.
Haart suggests that homeowners struggling to sell should gain more kerb appeal by focusing on minor details to make prospective buyers see the potential in their property.
Haart Managing Director Russell Jervis said: “First impressions always count and this is now truer than ever. The basic rules apply wherever you live and a small amount of time and money can make all the difference. It’s the simple things that make the most impact such as a fresh lick of paint, tidying up, making sure your home is well lit and that your garden isn’t a mess.”
According to Mr Jervis, it is hard for sellers to see problems with their homes as they live with them day to day.
“The best way to get a different view point is to ask us for some professional advice as to what you can do to improve your living space.
“De-clutter and de-personalise is the best advice for internal work. As ever, neutral colours are a must so that the potential buyers can imagine themselves and their belongings in your home.”
Particular attention should be paid to kitchen and bathrooms as these rooms are most used in a home and are the main importance to most buyers.
Many people open kitchen cupboards when they look around a house, making a fantastic excuse to clear out all of the things that you don’t use any more.
In the bathroom, re-grouting the tiles, a new toilet seat, and a good scrub of the bath tub can be the perfect spruce up.
If you have a pet ensure you get rid of their odour and invest in some fresh flowers as scent can determine how buyers perceive a home. Opening windows before a viewing and banishing food smells are also very important.
Externally, mowing the lawn, pruning your hedges and putting colourful flowers in pots are sure to make an impact.
Also making sure the doorbell works and that your front door doesn’t squeak are must.
If you are feeling a little more adventurous, a new lick of paint on your front door will make the entrance to your home feel fresh and inviting, and according to the experts blue is always a winner!
Haart is part of the Spicerhaart group, Britain’s largest independent estate agency. Mr Jervis added: “Whatever the state of the economic climate, we would always recommend that you invest money in your property so that when the time does come to sell, your home will be in a prime condition and will obtain the maximum price possible.”
