Milder weather, lighter nights, less rain. Everyone is relieved when the spring months roll in, yet for prospective property sellers, the new season offers an added bonus: it is the ideal time to market a property.

March and April have always been popular months for potential buyers to move into action. As most people would rather see a property during daylight hours, preferably without having to trek through horrendous weather to get to it, spring offers more opportunities for viewings in optimal conditions. Plus having had a chance to get over the festive period and with summer holidays still months off, spring provides a quiet window for many people in which to secure their new home.

But it isn’t just buyers who can benefit from the spring months. If you are looking to sell your house fast, the raised number of active buyers means more viewings at a time when you can easily get your property looking its best.

Follow these few steps for a house that sings in spring:

Get spring cleaning

With the lighter conditions, every corner of your property will be on full display. Make sure that there is nothing to put off your potential buyer by thoroughly assessing your home. You should be looking for any paintwork that needs refreshing, any furniture or fittings that need fixing or removing and any cluttered areas that detract from the potential of a room. Once you’ve addressed these issues, and added value to your home, follow it up with a thorough clean to make your house welcoming to viewers.

Give your garden a makeover

In spring, your garden – or any outdoor area- can become your property’s biggest selling point. A tidy outdoor area with a burst of colour from potted or bedded plants and flowers will help your buyer imagine themselves enjoying this space during the warmer weather. Whereas during winter a quick glance at the garden may have sufficed, with spring viewings it is likely buyers will spend more time inspecting outdoors, so it’s well worth staging it as a desirable area.

Once you’ve carried out these simple steps, you’ll be spring ready to sell your property fast.

We found on NPT when we did a search on the internet and decided to go with them because of their good reviews. We recommend them to somebody looking for a hassle-free sale. We dealt with Sam who was excellent.
I found you guys online via a search engine. I rang a couple of companies but the reason I went with you was the initial sales call. Jim came across friendly and knowledgeable without too much of a sales pitch, I felt he was honest. When I moved to the progression team after accepting the offer, you were both great. I’ve felt like I’ve had a personal service, not a stranger on the phone for a big company. I would recommend National Property Trade to anyone who wants a straight forward sale and especially a big thanks to both you and Oliver.
Completed within 10 days. Money direct to bank account. No change of price and stuck to their oringal price, which was fair. Paid all fees and I don't have anything negative to say. Fast acting and Dan was superb from the start.
