While it’s easy to spend a lot of money staging your property for showings, you don’t have to do so to make it look new.
 
You can make your home look more appealing to buyers and be on the right track to a faster sale by showcasing the features your property already has, and doing a few simple things to brighten up the overall appearance.
 
 
Make the most of natural light
 
One of the nicest features a home can have is natural light.
 
Make sure your window ledges are clear and your curtains are fully open when viewings are scheduled. If you have the time, clean your windows as well.
 
These changes may seem small, but they can make a big difference.
 
 
Vacuum rugs and upholstery
 
Give your rugs, upholstery, and sofa cushions a good cleaning if you want your home to look brighter.
 
These items can become dirty over time, even if you do not notice it. You can make your room look brand new with a fast clean of the necessities. Plus, when buyers walk in, your place will smell amazing!
 
 
Repaint walls
 
One of the first things potential buyers will notice is the walls. The rooms in your home can easily appear larger and cleaner by using a bright, neutral colour.
 
If you are limited on time, use a magic eraser to wipe the walls clean. Dirt and imperfections can be completely removed with a few quick scrubs!

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.
