Spring is almost here, and this makes it a prime time to sell your property. Before you get an estate agent and book viewings take a proper look around and consider whether you need to do a spring clean. Chances are that your home will benefit from one.

Here are some tips to help you get started and get your home looking fresh.

De-clutter

Viewers love seeing that there’s enough storage, especially in the kitchen and bathroom. By clearing out things you no longer need, it can make them see how much space they will have. Also, if you do have random bits and pieces dotted around the house, tidying these bits can help to show each room to its full potential.

Clean and Dust

With each viewing you are trying to make a good first impression, keeping things tidy and clean not only makes your home look better, but it also shows you have pride in the property and that you take care of it.

Lighting

Embrace natural lighting, if the day is nice make sure the curtains are open and you are letting lots of light in. You want the space to feel airy and bright. This will give a fresh open atmosphere. If a dull day or in the evening, invest in warm/yellow bulbs. This will give off a cosy homey feeling.

Small Redecoration

Finally, use neutral colours and don’t overdo the decoration. You want to repaint anything that looks a bit old and worn, bring in some pops of colour from uses of plants and cushion or throws. Just little things to bring the right amount of personality and brightness without being overwhelming.

We hope these tips will give you an idea of how to prepare your property and get it looking its best for potential buyers.
