Getting the best price for a house means taking a few steps to make sure you really maximise its value. The experts at MoveWise Estate Agency have over 70 years of combined experience. We’ve pooled that knowledge to come up with these essential tips for property sellers.

Create an Appealing Exterior

First impressions are important. Your home should be appealing and inviting. Take care of the exterior of your property. Ensure that the garden is well-maintained, the entrance is attractive, and any necessary repairs or repainting are done. Landscaping plays a crucial role in enhancing curb appeal, so consider adding some colorful plants and flowers to create an inviting atmosphere for potential buyers. Additionally, upgrading outdoor lighting fixtures can accentuate the beauty of your home during evening viewings, further enhancing its overall appeal.

Depersonalise Your Space

Get rid of any clutter and clear away personal mementoes and belongings. Buyers want to envision how the property will look when they move in. Neutralising the decor can help potential buyers imagine themselves living in the space. Store away family photos and personal items to create a blank canvas for potential buyers to envision their own belongings in the home.

Invest in Minor Upgrades

Upgrade key areas, such as the kitchen and bathrooms. Fresh paint, updated fixtures, and minor repairs can make a significant difference without breaking the bank. Consider adding modern touches like stainless steel appliances or energy-efficient lighting to attract buyers. Updating outdated features can make your home more appealing to potential buyers and increase its overall value.

Highlight Your Home’s Features

Draw attention to the things that make your home stand out. If you have a large living room, a well-equipped kitchen or a well-kept garden then be sure and point this out. Emphasise unique features such as hardwood floors, a fireplace, or a spacious garden to capture buyers' interest. Showcase any recent renovations or upgrades to highlight the value-added aspects of your property.

Have Professional Photos Taken

Don’t just snap a few pics of your home on your phone. Get a proper photographer in to take photos that accentuate the features of your property. Not to worry, MoveWise take care of all of this for you. Professional photos can significantly increase the online visibility of your listing and attract more potential buyers. High-quality images can showcase your home in the best light and make a lasting impression on potential buyers.
