How to Prepare a Property for Sale
When looking to sell a property of any kind, you should do everything you can to leave it in the condition you’d expect to be greeted by if you were stepping into a property you’d just purchased.
Cleaning the property to your own high standards is more than acceptable, if you are generally a clean and tidy person.
If you aren’t so clean and tidy, you might be wondering what the main things are that will help you to sell your property, whether it be a commercial property or a house.
5 Top Tips for Selling your Property
Below, we have listed 5 top tips for selling your property.
1. Clean the Carpets
One of the first things people will look at when they are looking to buy any type of property is the flooring. Flooring can be expensive to replace, meaning the chance of someone moving into a property with dirty, stained or damaged flooring is lessened.
Look for a local carpet cleaner to clean your carpets and upholstery for you. If you can get your carpets and flooring looking near to new again, you will go a long way towards selling your property faster.
2. Make it Sparkle
Cleaning your home should go beyond the usual daily and weekly cleaning jobs, even if you have to hire someone to do it. This should take a day or two to complete, so you might want to call in some help. At the very least, give yourself a weekend to thoroughly clean your property to make it sparkle.
Wash the windows, inside and out. Get hold of a pressure washer to clean outdoor areas, such as a driveway, car park, patio or decking. Polish mirrors. Hoover everywhere. Give the whole property a thorough dusting. Pay attention to bathroom and kitchen areas as these can have a massive impact on whether or not the property sells.
3. Make Minor Repairs
If you are well aware of small problems that might hinder the chance of selling the property, get them fixed ASAP. Whether it’s a dodgy gate, a cracked floor tile, a small leak of any kind or something completely different, take extra care to fix small problems and this will go a long way towards helping you sell.
Try your best to depersonalise the property (this applies more to house sales than the commercial side of things). Put away any personal photographs as buyers have a hard time looking past personal effects. You want to give buyers the opportunity to imagine themselves living in the property, rather than only being able to see what the property looks like for someone else.
5. Tidy Cupboards, Wardrobes etc.
Most people will open cupboards and wardrobes to assess what the space options are like. They’ll open the fridge, look under the stairs and probably have a real snoop about. Kitchen cupboards are especially popular for snoopers, so take the time to tidy the kitchen thoroughly.--------
