This has put homeowners looking to move in a better position than ever. What could it mean for you?

 
Here are a few top tips for selling your home this summer:

 
1. First impressions count

 
Don’t underestimate the impact that kerb appeal has on potential buyers.

 
A survey conducted by YouGov stated that well-maintained windows, front gardens and pathways can be the key to a quick sale.

 
 
2. Update the kitchen

 
The kitchen is the most valuable room in the house.

 
A bright spacious kitchen can be attractive to potential buyers.

 
A fresh coat of paint and removing any bulky appliances before viewings can make all the difference in creating a clean and spacious look.

 
 
3. Light and airy

 
Putting up mirrors in your home can make a room seem much larger and brighter.

 
Putting lamps in any dark corners will brighten up the room and create a warm glow that is inviting to potential buyers.
