Are you looking for a quick sale to move on to your next home? Are you at the same time trying to achieve the best price for your property? And not looking to spend so much in doing so, money that you could be sinking into your next home? Here are some tips for those with houses for sale in Swindon.
The best and most succinct advice we give to homeowners with houses for sale in Swindon is keep it light, bright and airy. Let the light into your home. Open the curtains, raise the blinds and turn on all the lights. Cast a warm glow rather than a cooler, bluer light. Make the house feel bigger by hanging mirrors.
Wallpaper chops up the space visually. Get scraping and refresh those walls with neutral-toned paint. Cut down on the furniture you display. You don’t want to interrupt the flow as people walk round your property. You want prospective buyers to feel comfortable and not cramped! Furniture can also block important features like a fireplace or the windows.
Remember, people are buying the house, not the stuff in it. Photographs or collections distract the buyer from appreciating the architectural features of your house. You don’t want buyers wondering who lives there. You want them to imagine themselves a part of it. Remove wall-to-wall carpeting that’s covering hardwood floors. Sell your home’s assets.
It probably goes without saying, but ‘clean’ sells. Ensure your viewers experience an immaculate dirt-free home with no washing up in the sink, clothes stashed away. Keep it fresh with new bedding. A fresh duvet, sheets and pillows will make a big impression. And if you have pets, don’t forget that some people are allergic or even don’t like pets themselves, making them feel uncomfortable when they’re viewing your home. Certainly remove all pet bowls, baskets and most importantly, litter trays.
Don’t forget also your outside space. An unkempt back garden with cracked paving slabs won’t look like that space for entertaining. You can buy inexpensive patio furniture, potted plants and install some outdoor lighting.
We have houses for sale in Swindon we can work together to sell. It’s extremely important that each room appears as it is intended to be used. So, if we have a buyer looking for a three-bedroom house, we need them to see it as that instead of a two bedroom plus a storage room!
