Selling homes is a priority if you will be relocating soon and do not live in rented properties. For some, selling one before they can buy a new house is a necessity: they may have to invest the money by selling to buy a new house. So, it helps to know the market trends to make the process easier.

Knowing what the customers are looking for can help. Back in 2021, back gardens were all the rage and this trend is still popular. So let’s take a closer look at the priorities of the people in London so that you can move quickly to your new priority.

Think like your potential buyer

One important factor that can make or break a deal is not ensuring everything is perfect. Many people rush into making a listing while their property needs repair work for instance. Try to ensure every nook and cranny of your house is repaired and in perfect condition. Be considerate of the little cracks because the buyers with fresh eyes will not miss them.

It’s easy to miss the chip in the paintwork, streaky windows, and damp patches on the ceiling. Remember, a first impression may get that house off your shoulders or vice versa. Stand a few feet apart and have a good look at your property from a buyer’s point of view. Make a note of all that needs work and get to it. Maintenance and a good clean work wonders. They help promote the qualities of your property.

Bring glamour to your exterior

The only silver lining to the pandemic was that the people realized the value of the outdoors. Since then, there has been a shift in the way people interact with their homes. They now prefer lounging outside with friends and family, especially in London where outdoor provisions are limited.

If you have a property with an outdoor space, you’re better off already. But to make it sell better, improve on the outlook by doing the following:

  • Cover the bald grass patches by reseeding.
  • Add more greenery such as potted plants
  • Flowers add aroma as well as color, so pot some too.
  • Consider investing in some outdoor furniture to add a comfortable setting

Declutter your property

Decluttering will add more space to your property and give off an organized look. It will also help you clean better. Go room by room and start doing it all.

During the process, you may also come across things that you may no longer use. Consider donating or discarding because they are doing nothing other than adding clutter to the house.

Get in touch with an estate agent

Estate agents are trained professionals who will be able to handle the marketing of your house to attract buyers. They also provide expert property valuation where you will learn plenty about what kind of improvements and maintenance your house requires. They will also offer you advice on what improvements will make or break the value of your property.
