When to seek professional help in getting your house ready for sale

  

Selling a property can feel like a daunting task. It is important that you prepare your house and make sure it is looking its best before you put it on the market, but where should you begin and when is it time to call in the professionals?

    

Preparing your house for sale

  

There are several things you should be doing to get your property ready to sell. If you want to maximise your chances of a quick and successful house sale, consider trying some of these ideas: 

    

Declutter

    

Decluttering is the starting point of any good pre-house sale preparation. You'll be surprised how much clutter you accumulate over the years, so a declutter will not only help with the presentation of your property, it will also save you money in removal costs as you won't be moving items that you no longer want or need.When it comes to property presentation, decluttering will help your home to feel more spacious, more cared for and more desirable. A property that is well organised will suggest to potential buyers that you are on top of property maintenance and look after the home well. It will also make the property feel less personalised and help potential buyers to envisage themselves and their belongings in the property.

Decluttering can be a challenging job when you are emotionally attached to the contents of your home. If you are struggling to declutter and finding it hard to view your property objectively, it is time to call in the professionals. 

  

A property presentation specialist will be able to offer you expert advice on how to declutter the property and help you to present your home in the best way to secure a quick house sale. Don't worry, you won't be pressurised into getting rid of any of your possessions. Items can be stored elsewhere whilst you secure a buyer for the property.

   

Complete any outstanding house maintenance or DIY jobs

  

As a property owner, it is not unusual to have an ongoing list of home maintenance jobs that need completing. If you are planning to put your property on the market, it is important to get any outstanding jobs completed before you do so. If you are looking to get your property on the market quickly, it is advisable to get the professionals in. You can source tradespeople individually, or, if you are considering hiring a property presentation or home staging specialist, they will have a wealth of local trade contacts and should be able to arrange quotes and manage any work for you. Time is precious, especially when it comes to selling a property, so it is often worth calling in the professionals to ensure the job gets done to a high standard and in a timely manner. 

    

Freshen up your property

    

If you want to sell your house quickly and achieve the best price you can for it, it is important that your property is well presented. Most people will ensure their home is clean and tidy for house viewings, but if you want your property to stand out from the competition, it is important to go the extra mile. A home staging specialist will help you with advice about how your property should be presented, based on a vast amount of experience of what attracts the most buyers etc. This might include neutralising colour schemes, decluttering, different furniture/accessories etc.

Don't be afraid to seek help

  

If DIY or interior design are not natural strengths of yours, don't be afraid to ask for professional help. Home staging a property can help it to stand out from others on the market, and improve your chances of a quick and successful house sale. Presenting your property in the best possible light will also make potential buyers feel they have less cause to make a 'cheeky offer' on the property, encouraging them to make a close to asking price, or asking price offer.

There are several different options when it comes to home staging a property. From an initial consultation and plan for you to implement yourself, through to full management, services can be tailored to suit your budget and timescales.

  

Consider selling your property directly

  

If you are keen to secure a quick and successful house sale, but do not feel you have time to go through the process of trying to secure a buyer on the open market, you may want to consider selling your home directly to a cash home buyer. The service of a cash home buyer is not right for everyone, as they will buy your property at a discount. However, if the speed and certainty of the sale is a higher priority than the price you achieve for the sale, a cash home buyer could be a good fit. A genuine cash home buyer should be able to complete the sale and have the money in your bank account in as little as seven days.
