Row of houses

 

Looking to sell your house? Trying to sell a property as quickly as possible? We all know that when trying to sell in today’s market, making the decision up sticks is only the first step – actually finding a buyer can be a struggle. However, there are a number of tasks that you must complete before trying to sell your house, which will help you to speed up the selling process:

 

1. First impressions count

Your front garden and the façade of the property are the first areas that any potential buyers will see. Given that first impressions really do count, it is essential that these areas are looking stunning in order to entice buyers into the property and really consider buying. This means looking after your garden, doing the weeding and ensuring that all front windows are spotless.

 

2. Depersonalise your living spaces

 

Potential buyers always attempt to place themselves in the property, imagining what it would be like for them to live there. However, this can be difficult to do if your property is cluttered with personal items, such as photographs, bold artwork and quirky furniture. By depersonalising your living spaces, it will be easier for people to visualise themselves and their family living in your property.

 

3. Conduct a smell test

 

Your nose can quickly get used to odours, especially when experiencing them every day. Odours can also quickly get into soft furnishings, carpets and curtains, and if you can’t smell them, you will have no idea they are there. Bad smells can often be a deal breaker, so it is well worth inviting an unbiased third party to check that your house doesn’t have any lingering pet or cigarette smells.

 

However, for anyone unwilling to wait around for that elusive buyer to materialise, there is always another option. At National Property Trade, we buy any house. You can get a guaranteed cash offer in as little as 30 seconds, regardless of the location, size or condition of your property.
