03rd March 2022
The spring selling season is in full swing and it’s often the most frantic time of the year for homebuyers and real estate agents. As the weather is warming up, homebuyers are looking for a new property before the prices start rising.

With an experienced and dedicated team on hand at all times, you can rest assured your move will be our priority.
In this blog, we’ve outlined 3 effective ways you can use to showcase your property on the house market during the spring selling season and set you up for success:
1. Deep clean your home
Before putting your property up for sale, you should ensure your home looks the best it can be. Make sure your carpets are cleaned, along with the windows and closets.
In addition, take the time to declutter your home to make it more visually appealing and organised before inviting potential buyers inside. Remove any overstuffed bookcase, furniture items or things that no longer have a purpose in your home.
2. Conduct pre-inspection repairs
The more well-maintained your home is, the better the chances you have to secure a high price for your property.
Before you put your home on the market, it’s a good idea to hire a home inspector to perform an evaluation and take care of any repairs. Whether it’s leaky faucets, deteriorated roofs, old lightbulbs, the HVAC system or any internal appliances, such as the fire and the smoke detectors, you should conduct all the necessary repairs to make sure your home is in a very good condition.
3. Don’t forget about exterior repairs
The exterior of your house is equally as important as the interior, so make sure you don’t neglect it. British homebuyers take an average of 25 seconds to decide whether a house is right for them, according to new research. Therefore, you should make the most out of it to ensure you don’t miss out on the profit from sprucing up your curb appeal.
The spring seasons brings warmer weather, hence why your porch and patio should take priority. You can add any plants or decorative pebbles to make it more appealing along the walkway and attract potential buyers. If you have a garden, make sure you trim your bushes, plant new flowers, repaint your fences, organise your furniture and throw away any rubbish.
