With the ever growing property market, it’s never been more important to make your property stand out. This doesn’t mean you have to shout the loudest, making a few simple changes can instantly make your property more appealing to potential buyers could be the fast track to a sale!

1. Don’t Overdo the Décor

Usually, when you talk about standing out we think big, bold and colourful, but when it comes to selling a property it is entirely the opposite. When a potential buyer enters a home they want to be able to envision themselves making the property their own. Overly decorated rooms can make this vision challenging if not impossible. Keeping things neutral will instantly attract a wider audience, whilst giving the impression of a more spacious room.

2. Space Sells

Leading on nicely from your new neutral décor, comes the importance of space. You’ve immediately opened the walls up to a whole world of new space with your light neutral tones, however large chunky furniture can immediately retract from all your hard work. Overfilling rooms with too much furniture can look cluttered and reduce the apparent space. Decluttering is key, so what better time for a clear out, once you’ve got rid of those unwanted gifts you’ve been holding onto out of guilt, there might not be any need for all the unnecessary storage.

3. Kerb Appeal

We’ve heard it all before but first impressions really do count, especially when it comes to selling a property. Nobody wants to venture through a jungle garden to reach a tired looking front door, this instantly creates a negative outlook before they have even stepped foot inside. Now the sun is shining it’s the perfect opportunity to tidy up those overgrown winter gardens, dig out your lawn mower and your hedge trimmer to leave things looking neat and appealing. Whilst you’re at it why not give your front a new lease of life with a lick of paint, this will immediately make your home more inviting!

4. Let There Be Light

Viewings can take place at any time of the day, but no matter what time it’s important to ensure your property looks as bright as possible. Dark dingy rooms appear smaller and less inviting. If the weather isn’t on your side, make sure you have all the lights on to brighten the room up as much as possible. For particularly dark rooms additional lamps can give them that extra glow they need.  

5. Show off Your Hard Work

If you’ve done it, shout about it! If you’ve upgraded your property in any way, make sure people know about it. Whether you’ve replaced the roof, or upgraded the kitchen appliances, these are all elements that will appeal to your potential buyers. Even if you never quite got round to adding that extension but your planning permission was granted this could be a huge selling point, so make sure it is well advertised as that could be the winning factor!

Every property has a unique selling point, making your property stand out from a crowd doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming, making these few simple changes could result in a buyer.
