With the darker evenings upon us, leaves on the ground & fire lit, I think it’s safe to say that summer is well and truly over. But what does that mean if you’re selling your house?
Potential purchasers tend to be keen to get a property agreed at this time of year, allowing them to have moved in to their new home before Christmas, so it’s important to have your house prepped and ready for viewing. Below are some tips to help you make the most of the autumn market.
Daytime viewings are ideal but not always possible, so as the days get shorter, it’s important to have your house well lit by using lamps and dimmers, which allow you to create a homely & warm atmosphere without making the room glary. Turn your porch or front light on to make your house inviting to evening viewers.
As the temperature drops make sure your house is warm and welcoming by having the heating on and any open fires / wood burning stoves lit – not only creating a cosy feeling but highlighting features of your home too.
First impressions are so important and that includes the outside of your house too.
At this time of year it’s notoriously difficult to keep your garden neat and tidy, however keeping all furniture, toys etc to one side helps create more space. Keep gutterings, drains & paths clear of leaves & debris making your home look well maintained.
