Unlocking the potential of your property: tips to prepare for sale

Make sure that your property sale is a success by taking these tips into account.

>> when is the best time to sell?

Property insight from Rightmove has shown that spring, and especially, February and March are the best times to list your property for sale.* On average, homes listed in February and March sell in 51 and 52 days, respectively.* 

There will be variations from year to year and even between regions but, overall, it can be said that spring is a great time to instruct your local agent and sell your property.


>> 7 top tips to help you sell

To help you make the most of your sale, here are seven tips to consider.

Maximise interior space: Create a sense of space inside your property by decluttering and rearranging furniture to maximise room flow. Consider storing away personal items to help viewers envision themselves living in the space. Light, airy rooms tend to be more appealing to buyers.

Highlight key features: Showcase the best features of your property, such as original fireplaces, period details, or modern appliances. By ensuring that these types of elements stand out during viewings, you could increase the chance of capturing the attention of potential buyers.

Freshen up decor: A fresh coat of paint can work wonders in refreshing tired-looking interiors. Stick to neutral colours to appeal to a broad range of buyers and make rooms feel brighter and more spacious. Similarly, consider updating fixtures and fittings to give your property a modern feel.

Complete minor repairs: Attend to any minor maintenance issues, such as leaky taps, squeaky doors, or cracked tiles, before putting your property on the market. These small details can detract from the overall appeal and may raise concerns for potential buyers.

Enhance kerb appeal: Make a positive first impression by sprucing up the exterior of your property. Depending on the type of property you could, for example, tidy the front garden, paint the front door, and ensure any fences or walls are well-maintained. A welcoming entrance can attract potential buyers before they even step inside.

Stage for success: Consider staging your property to showcase its full potential. Use tasteful decor and furnishings to highlight the functionality and versatility of each room.
