Property tips :   24 - 09 - 21

One-third of homeowners choose to buy or sell in early autumn, making now the ideal time to put your house on the market with our property experts.

With children now back to school, could a move be on the cards for you?


If you are selling this autumn, here are some of our top tips…

1) Have a clear-out

The back to school season can be a busy time, with one in four also choosing to switch jobs and careers during this month compared to the rest of the year.*

Having a simple declutter of your belongings and items will improve the presentation of your home. Clean space is appealing to prospective buyers. A decluttered house will also give them confidence that the property has been well-maintained.


2) Maximise your storage

Making the most of your storage space is an easy way to keep your home tidy at a low cost. Prospective buyers will also be able to see how useful this space is when they are viewing your home.

By using storage space to its full potential, you may be able to do less tidying in between any viewings that take place.


3) Plan for viewings

Don’t let viewings catch you off guard! Prepare a checklist of everything you need to do before a potential buyer comes to view your home.

Having a set plan of action will help you to keep a clear head and get things done amid the back-to-school chaos.


4) Improve your home’s kerb appeal

Two-thirds of buyers stated that kerb appeal was a significant influencer in their property purchase.**

Some top tips for improving your home’s aesthetics are hiding bins, cleaning your windows and updating your front door with a fresh lick of paint.
