5 Simple Hacks to Sell your Home Fast

24.8.18


If you are planning on selling up anytime soon, you will no doubt have had pangs of worry that your humble abode will end up staying on the market for months. While you love your home, because you have made many wonderful memories within the four walls, potential buyers will need to fall in love with its charm, location, and vibe for the first time. Take a look at these five simple hacks that can have you seducing any potential buyers that walk through your door:

  • It sounds crazy, but the smell of a home can be one of the first things to attract or put off any potential purchasers. If you have a dog or a couple of cats, they need to be somewhere else while you are conducting a viewing. While you may be used to their pet scent, buyers will not find this odour at all appealing. Light some candles, bake some bread and perpetuate a more homely scent to fill the air.

  • Many buyers will head straight to the windows to check out the views from your home. At the same time, they’ll be checking out the casings, the glazing, and the fixtures too. Instead of a pair of old curtains, maximise the natural light within your rooms as well as adding a modern touch with some blinds. When looking at how to install roller blinds or Venetian blinds, ensure that you order them to your bespoke measurements. This can add a clean look to your home that can tempt buyers.

  • If your sofa is a little old and beaten up, no amount of soft furnishings is going to enhance its appeal. Although buyers won’t be purchasing your furniture, they will want to see your lifestyle in action. Instead, hire some top quality furniture specifically for your house viewings. There’s no long term commitment to buying it, and you can sell your home quicker by exuding an appealing lifestyle.

  • Get rid of clutter. Put your ‘things’ away in drawers, clean up the kids toys and don’t have random ornaments and pictures cluttering up your shelf space. This sends a message to your potential buyers that the house is small and they will outgrow it quickly. Instead, you want clean lines, space and natural light to envelop your rooms.

  • Even if you don’t have a green-fingered bone in your body, you should at least ensure that your flora and fauna is pruned, the lawn is well coiffed, and that there are some colourful hanging baskets adorning your porch. The drive and garden leading up to your home is the first thing potential buyers see, so make sure it is welcoming and homely.

Selling your home sounds easy, but with a wealth of other properties on the market, it can be a fierce competition to sell quickly. But if you use these hacks, hopefully yours will be off the market as soon as possible!
