Get your property market-ready  Posted On 01 June 2020

With the property market open, now is the perfect time to get your property “market-ready.”

 

Tidy the Garden

The garden is a huge selling point for most properties on the market. With the warmer weather having arrived, now is the perfect time to get into your garden to complete quick and simple jobs to make your property more sellable and aesthetically pleasing in photos. Simply mowing your lawn and trimming your hedges makes a huge difference for when our valuer pops round to take photos. Also, why not plant some spring/summer flowers in your borders to make these easier on the eye too? A lot of garden nurseries are now open, as are DIY shops for any tools needed.

 

DIY jobs Indoors

Maybe you have those leftover tiles for the kitchen, or that roll of carpet waiting to be laid. This could be the perfect time to tackle these jobs yourself. YouTube has thousands of videos to offer you guidance and advice from everything from tiling a kitchen, to fitting a dado rail.Holes in your walls? These are a simple fix with some ready mixed multi-purpose filler and will make your property look better straight away; just remember to use the same paint as the walls already are!

 

Deep Cleaning

Nothing helps get a property market-ready better than a thorough deep clean. Work through each room to get the property as sparkling as possible. In the bathroom, don’t forget to go round the edges of the taps and the bath to remove any gunk, and buff and shine the taps to make them look really impressive. In the kitchen, clean and buff any metallic or windowed appliances, especially the front window of the oven. If you have any carpet in the living room, use carpet shampoo before hoovering, to get them back to looking their best. As your local estate agent, we are here for you whenever you need us. Visit us online today, for more information about marketing your property.
