If you are planning to put your home on the market and you need the sale to go through as quickly as possible, there are several things you can do to hurry the process along and make your home more attractive to potential buyers.

So, before you contact your real estate listing agent to get the ball rolling, take a look at these simple tips for increasing interest in your home:

Take Care of Your Kitchen

The kitchen is the hub of the home. It is the place where families get together to share good times, so it is not surprising that the kitchen is the key to selling almost any home. Now that you know this, you should make an honest evaluation of your kitchen. Is it inviting? Is it up to date? Would a new buyer be impressed by it? If you answered no to any of these questions, it might be worth giving your kitchen a little update, so that it won’t let you down and make your home harder to sell.

Increase the Potential

Buyers are more likely to be interested in your home if you increase the value before they come to take a look around. So, if you have the space for an extension, get planning consent now. This will enable your real estate agent to big up your home and its potential to future buyers, which makes it well worth the fairly modest cost of getting permissions in place.

Get Cleaning

No matter how impressive your home is, if it looks dirty and smells of dog, old cooking, tobacco smoke, or anything else unpleasant, potential buyers will immediately be put off. So, before you put it on the market, spend some time giving every room a deep clean, which included cleaning carpets, drapes, furniture and anything else that could hold on to unpleasant odors.

Make Repairs

Minor repairs may not cause you any problems in day to day living, but they can create a bad impression in the minds of potential, owners, which is why it is worth investing some time and money into repairing that squeaking pipe or leaking faucet before the realtor starts showing people around.

Give the Garden Some Attention

An unkempt garden can put buyers off before they even get through the front door, so roll up your sleeves and get weeding. Cut the lawn, trim and unruly bushes or trees and perhaps plant some flowers, to make sure that your garden creates the best first impression it possibly can!

If you really want to give your home a boost in the eyes of buyers, one of the best things you can do is depersonalise it. Removing personal possessions, such as photos and knick-knacks Allows potential buyers to see how the property would work for them. It is much easier for them to imagine putting their own stamp on a place when they don’t have your personal mementos getting in the way.

Although these tricks do not guarantee a quicker sale, if you put them into practice there is a very good chance you will be moving into your new home in no time at all!
