Once you have decided to move house you may just want to get up and go straight away. However, that isn’t going to be as easy if you have to sell your existing home first.  Don’t despair though, follow these tips and you will be able to sell your home quickly. 

De-Clutter

It makes sense to de-clutter because it will give potential viewers a better idea of the size of your home and clean lines will make it easier for them to imagine living in the house themselves. It may seem like a lot of hard work to de-clutter before you have any viewers, but it will help your home sell more quickly. You will have to de-clutter before you move anyway so you may as well get started early. 

Paint

A fresh coat of paint will make your home look nicer and brighter. Opt for a neutral colour throughout and a potential buyer won’t need to worry about whether the walls match the sofa. If they buy the house, they can always change the décor, but you will get a lot more interest if you start with neutral tones. 

Aroma

A fresh coat of paint smells lovely and will help to sell your home. However, the aroma doesn’t last forever. Making sure that your home smells good will encourage buyers to make an offer and they are certainly more likely to remember it. This is important if they are viewing several properties.

If you are a keen baker, then get baking before your viewers arrive. This will make your space smell homely and comforting. You could always be a good host and offer them some of your baked goods. If they have to stay in your home long enough to eat them, they have time to fall in love with the house too. 

Add Some Mirrors

Mirrors look brilliant with neutrally toned walls, and they can make your home look bigger and brighter. A well-placed mirror or two will add depth to your home and highlight the space. You don’t need to turn your home into a world of mirrors but one or two strategically placed in the living room, hallway, and bedroom will help you to sell your home quickly. 

Get a Good Estate Agent

Getting a good estate agent is imperative if you want to sell your home quickly. Someone who knows the local area, has a good reputation, and has plenty of potential buyers on their books would be ideal. If you are looking for Erdington estate agents, consider contacting Henley Charles.

Be Prepared to Negotiate

You may have your ideal sale price in mind, but if you are able to move slightly on that, you could find a buyer sooner. Negotiating the asking price may cost you a couple of thousand pounds but if your buyer thinks they have a bargain, they will be keen to move fast, and this could be ideal for you.

Follow these tips to help you sell your home quickly and get moving as speedily as you want to.
