Top 10 Tips For Selling Your Cardiff Home

Once you have decided to sell your Cardiff home, remember small things can make £1000's difference to the sale price achieved. It is very easy to miss the obvious that buyers viewing your home will see. This could potentially end in lower offers or even lose you that vital sale. Follow these Top Tips below to help your property acheive the highest price and to sell in quickest time.
  1. Having colourful fresh flowers, the aroma of freshly baked bread and freshly brewed coffee will fill your property with lovely aromas which will make viewers feel at home!
  2. Decluttering is a great way to make a room appear more spacious, allowing potential buyers to visualise the space with their own furniture.
  3. Keep front lawns mowed, hedges trimmed, add pots of colourful flowers and even a fresh lick of paint for a front door! This is the very first impression potential buyers will have of your property!
  4. Children's rooms can often look like a burglary has taken place and although some viewers will be families with children, seeing a chaotic room may not sway them to buy the property. Investing in some good storage will help buyers see the potential of the room.
  5. Having a clean and tidy house for viewings is essential. Focus on key areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. Buyers will look closely at these rooms, so grease and grime will be off-putting. Pay close attention to tile grout, work surfaces, and floors.
  6. Got a cracked tile? Leaky tap? Tackling these jobs prior to putting your house on the market is a good idea. Many buyers want to move in without having to make changes immediately.
  7. Some of us love pets, some dislike pets and others are allergic to them. So it’s important to make your property smell fresh, remove pet feeding bowls and beds and it’s a good idea to ask a willing neighbour or family member to look after your pet while the viewing takes place.
  8. Freshen Up – a fresh coat of paint can do wonders to a tired looking property.
  9. Staying out of the way – Leave the house when potential buyers come to view. They want to spend time looking at each room freely. Let them wander around the house with the agent without feeling uncomfortable that you are there watching them.
  10. Are you ready? Instruct your solicitor to do your conveyancing early. Have them to draft the contract, apply for the title deeds and answer their initial enquiries. Once you have accepted an offer you are all ready to go with no delays.
