With spring gradually revealing itself, now is an excellent time to sell your house, as buyers are more active in spring than at any other time of the year.  
Follow our tips to take advantage of the changing seasons to sell your home… 
 
Spring cleaning is essential 
If you want to sell your property swiftly in the coming months, you should follow the long-standing tradition of a good spring clean. Washing all the windows and doors, inside and out, will leave a positive impression on potential buyers. Make sure your home is clean and bright to reflect the fresher spring months. 
 
Don’t overlook your outdoor areas 
As the weather warms up, people naturally cast a more scrutinising eye on the outdoor spaces of the properties they are interested in. It’s easy to leave your garden untidy after a long winter but running the lawnmower over it and tidying up those exterior places will make your home much more appealing. 
 
Spring has sprung 
Plant flowers at your front door to welcome the changing seasons – a planter full of bright colours will put potential buyers in a good frame of mind. Buyers will be happier if there are pops of colour around the home, making them more inclined to make an offer. Fresh flowers in the house will also make a big difference and create the perfect tone, so fill a few vases and distribute them about the house for a continual wow factor. 
 
Accessorise to your heart’s content 
A few items can make a big difference in the overall presentation of your home and matching them to the season is a great way to wow potential buyers. To brighten up your rooms, choose soft spring colours – blankets, pillows, towels, and bed linens are all easy to switch out to create the perfect ambience, and you can take them with you when you sell your home. 
 
Smells like a good deal 
When it comes to selling your home, first impressions are crucial, since research shows that buyers only take 8 minutes to decide whether they want to buy a property. A fresh-smelling property makes the best first impression, so make sure you’ve aired it out and there are no unpleasant odours. Putting some bread in the oven and creating a homey, welcome atmosphere is a sure-fire technique to infuse your home with a pleasant and appealing smell.

One in three properties receive an offer one hour after viewing

The housing market once again exceeds expectations after a poor reception from the chancellor’s mini-budget and regular talk of a possible slowdown, as current research suggests that in 2022, almost a third (31%) of properties are now receiving offers within an hour, compared to a mere 7% in 2018.
