Summer is the time of year when buyers want to find their new home and get things settled before the winter months come along so it's a great time to sell your property. So what tips and tricks can you use to make sure you attract all the interest you need?
Summer months mean longer daylight hours and so many more viewings are possible if you are flexible about having interested parties coming to your home either early in the morning or later in the evening. Not only can you get more people to look at your property by doing this, you'll also be able to take advantage of what photographers and film makers call 'the magic hour' at each end of the day when the sunlight makes everything look even lovelier.
First impressions count and that's never more true than when it comes to selling a property. A lack of kerb appeal can put people off from going through with a viewing even in they have travelled a long way. We can make your property look great with our professional photography, industry leading brochures and online presentations, but you need to make sure that there's no flaking paint, drooping flowers of unkempt lawns. Even a quick wash of your front door and windows can make all the difference.
Colours look even better in the summer and that doesn't mean you need a paint job to take advantage of this. Using accessories to add colour around your home brightens the mood and helps create a positive and inviting visual aspect. Likewise heavy curtains and dark blinds can negate the positive reasons for summer selling, and by letting the light in you can make rooms feel bigger and airier.
Dress to impress
We look after all the viewings for you, so you don't have to make an effort to dress up to impress potential buyers. However, dressing your home is always a good idea to help it stand out from all the other properties vying for attention. Set dressing means arranging of a room or other indoor space to maximise the appeal in various ways, whether that’s making a smaller room look bigger or give a large space a homely atmosphere. This can be as simple as re-arranging the furniture or even making sure that everywhere is clean and tidy!
