Selling your home in spring is often considered the best season. For an array of reasons, the strongest being you will be settled and relaxing into your new home come Christmas.
There is just something about the sunshine returning and beaming through your streaky windows that makes people begin to dream of change and shed the winter blues.
Here are our top 5 tips to make the most of selling in spring
1. First Impressions Count
Whether it’s fresh paint on your front door or some lush green pots either side of it, first impressions are undoubtedly important. 47% of Australians will have already decided if they like a property or not upon opening the front door.
This means your street front appearance must be polished and manicured to perfection. Drag out the high-pressure hose on the driveway to remove oil stains, and trim bushes or hedges in your front garden.
2. Spring Clean
If you opt against having your home professionally styled, you will need to clear the clutter. Take the time to methodically sort through each room, reminisce and toss!
Alternatively, opting for temporary storage is an excellent solution. Whether it be larger items of furniture or the kick start on packing you need, emphasising the size of each room is essential.
3. Let the Light in
Allow your home to be saturated with natural light. Open all the curtains and blinds and consider removing or pushing them to the side where possible. This will emphasise the size of your windows and welcome more light inside. Cleaning the windows is also key here.
Clean, bright windows are also great for showcasing outdoor
4. Brighten up the Garden
Create a homely, bright yet low maintenance garden. A quick visit to the local garden store will see you discover an array of bright and cheap annuals.
Plant these along the garden path and front of the home for maximum impact. This is help create an ideal lifestyle in your potential buyers mind.
