Here’s some top tips for selling your property in the sunnier months from Michael Anthony Estate Agents. Longer days, BBQs and (hopefully) hotter climates means local communities feel chipper during June, July and August. This could also be a great time to market your property. Plants are in full bloom, lawns are healthy, and colours are vibrant. So, using our 30+ years’ experience in successfully selling in Beds, Bucks and Herts, here’s seven top tips for maximising the chance of selling your home:
Grass grows much faster during the summer, and so aim to mow lawns at least twice a week. From the outside it looks like you look after your property and sets a favourable first impression.
- The value of plants in pots
If you have space and available budget, putting a few plant pots with summer flowers like petunia, geraniums and begonias provides superb kerb appeal.
Whatever the time of year and you want to sell, you’ll need to tidy up to set that favourable impression when the front door opens. However, don’t forget the garden. With the better weather and longer days, you and your family will want to get out in the garden and enjoy the outdoor space. However, don’t forget to put garden toys, games and tools away after you’ve finished!
Days are longer, so make the most of them! As soon as you wake, draw curtains and raise the blinds. Letting the outside light in maximises space and possibilities for potentials purchasers. Set the imagination
- Juggling the school holidays
Many people are busy during the summer months and also children break up for summer during July. Therefore, it is more important than ever to be flexible when it comes to allowing potential buyers to view your home, but also think about if friends, family and/or neighbours can look after children and pets when viewers look around.
Don’t go to the expense of (often) expensive air fresheners, if it’s safe to do so, open the windows and let nature in! The summer breeze will flow through your property!
If a room needs a lick of paint or a few repairs, schedule them in good time and then invite Michael Anthony to give a free, no obligation market appraisal.
