If you are thinking of selling, we have some tips for you below to help you get the best price for your property

When thinking about selling your home, there are several aspects you need to consider. Timing is key, with many property experts suggesting that Springtime and, in particular, February and March are two of the best months to sell*. However, it is worth remembering that different parts of the UK might have different trends. What works well in one area might not be the same in another. Still, generally speaking, England, Wales, and Scotland all tend to see more activity in the property market during spring.

How to maximise your property’s appeal
Getting your home ready to sell can be exciting, but it's important to be prepared. The first few weeks after listing your property are crucial, so here are some simple tips to help you get started:
  • Improve the property’s exterior: Make the front of your home look inviting by keeping it tidy and neat. This means clearing clutter from the entrance, making sure the front door and windows look good, and keeping the garden well-maintained.
  • Tidy up the property’s interior: Decluttering your home can make it feel more spacious and appealing to potential buyers. Clearing away unnecessary items and creating more space to move around can help people imagine themselves living there.
  • Get creative: Look for items you no longer need that could be upcycled or repurposed. This not only declutters your home but can also add value by giving old items a new lease on life.
  • Create a sense of space: If you have a small home, consider ways to make it feel bigger. As mentioned in point 2, decluttering is key, but you can also use mirrors strategically to create the illusion of more space and light.
  • Seek advice: Don't be afraid to ask for help from local property experts. They can offer valuable advice and support tailored to your situation, helping you navigate the selling process with confidence.
