As areas of our society are slowly being 'unlocked', it feels like there is a little light shining through at the end of the tunnel.
We all know we must not rush this phase of the lockdown and moving forward safely is something we all must play our part in.
However, we are getting an increasing number of enquiries from people thinking about making their next property move.
So if you are one of the manyu people considering selling your home, there are a number of quick wins that can help you get ahead and be prepared ready to sell.
By simply following these steps, you can help give your chosen estate agent the best chance of selling your property quickly, and for the best possible price.
Four steps to prepare
1. Get Organised - collate together all your property related paperwork such as warranties, guarantees and manuals.
2. Take time to Declutter - Lockdown has given many of us the chance to have a good clear out which is great, so if you do have time on your hands get rid of any clutter and get tidy this has a massive impact on first impressions.
3. Fix, paint and maintain - Now is the perfect time to get all those odd jobs around the house done. Fix the squeaky door, paint the hallway, put up that shelf and re-do the bathroom sealant.
4. Get clean and sparkly - it's spring, so get spring cleaning. There is nothing better than a sparlking clean and fresh-smelling home. It is also great for your mental and physical health. Buyers always appreciate a clean home even if it does require modernisation.
We're expecting the local property market to leap back into life once the pent-up demand to move is unleashed and social distancing measures are further relaxed. And together, we'll be ready for it.
