If you’re planning on selling your home it is important you achieve the best price possible. In order to do this, you must be willing to make some small adjustments to improve your chances of achieving the price you are asking for.

We’ve put together a short but powerful list of home improvement tips guaranteed to help make your home more saleable.

1.Tidy Up

First impressions count, so make sure your home is clean and tidy, you can do this by removing excess clutter, placing unnecessary furniture into storage and giving the home a thorough blitz clean. If you have carpets that are looking a little tatty it might be worthwhile spending some time giving them a thorough steam clean. Using air fresheners are fine but scent should not be overpowering.

2.Small Jobs

As stated earlier, first impressions are important. Potential purchasers will be looking at every aspect of your home and making note of any works that need to be carried out. If your home looks unappealing or suffers from lots of wear and tear you could end up struggling to achieve full asking price.

We recommend you spend a weekend giving certain rooms a lick of paint for example the living room or bathroom and also fixing damaged wallpaper, doors, plug sockets and kitchen cupboards.

3. Dress Up

Creating an unforgettable environment for potential purchasers need not be difficult or cost thousands of pounds, to achieve this you should dress up your property so that potential purchasers are able to easily visualise themselves living within the property.

This can be done by purchasing homely cushions and throws for your sofas, adding plants, sprucing up bedspreads and furnishing your garden with matching table and chairs.
