Top Tips for Selling Your Home...
FIRST IMPRESSIONS COUNT
Most house buyers form their first impressions within seconds
of walking through the front door. If you have a front garden,
spend a little time sprucing it up. A few plant
pots and a clear pathway can make the front of your house
CLEAR WORKTOPS AND DECLUTTER
A tidy room should never be underestimated. So, take some time
to clean each room from top to bottom, paying special attention
to high impact rooms such as the kitchen and bathroom. You
should also think about having a spring clean. If there is too
much furniture and things like children’s toys and unused gym
equipment lying around, it can make the property feel smaller.
BRAG ABOUT YOUR BROADBAND
Broadband speeds are serious business in this day and age,
and just advertising the presence of fibre optic cables in
your area could be enough to encourage buyers. Make sure
to take a look at other features of your property that are
appealing to buyers.
Home technologies are increasingly important to buyers.
Smart technology such as Hive, which gives mobile control
over heating systems, is a feature worth considering. If it
moves your EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) up a band,
it could add to the sale price.

ADD A LICK OF PAINT
Neutral colours are appealing to
house buyers. A fresh coat of paint
will brighten up your home and will
allow would-be buyers to envisage
themselves living in the space.
DO SOME DIY
Straightforward DIY jobs such as
filling holes in walls and checking for
clogs in the guttering are easy to do
and is one less thing your buyer to
think about. Getting any problems
fixed before putting the house on the
market is a smart idea.
For those buyers living out of the area and
travel, virtual tours are imperative to show
property. H&H Land & Estates provide a highquality tour
which is compatible to all digital platforms.
PICK THE RIGHT AGENT
Choosing the right estate agent is very important and will have a big
impact on how quickly you sell your house, and at what price. Using
a regulated estate agent will give you the assurance that your estate
agent follows best practice, meets all requirements of the profession
and works to industry standards.
