Selling Your Home in the New Year

Posted on January 06, 2022 at 2:55 PM

Now the festive period is over, and the New Year is here, there is an increase in people looking to sell their homes, giving them a fresh start for the year ahead. However we suggest making sure you are organised and prepared for the process, as it is one of the busiest times of year to sell. We have compiled a list of the things to do before you even put your home on the market, so your property sells ASAP!

Get ahead of the competition
It is obvious that you will always have competitors when it comes to selling your property, so to make sure your property has the highest chance to sell quickly, we advise getting it on the market as soon as possible, this will give buyers an opportunity to view the property more (whether it is a virtual or face to face viewing), making them more likely to fall in love with the house!

Declutter your home in preparation for viewings
When potential buyers are looking at a property, they want to be able to envision it as their own, this means making it look less personal and more “show home” as it lets them imagine their personal belongings in the space. By having a clutter free and clean home, they can also picture themselves with a clean home, and who doesn’t want that?!

Make your home as bright as possible!
One of the things that draws many buyers into purchasing a home, is seeing how bright and airy it is. This makes the property feel lighter and more inviting. As it is winter, it can be hard to recreate that beautiful summer sunlight, however by adding lamps and replacing bulbs, it can be easier to see the beauty of the property. Brightening up your property also makes your marketing photos more appealing on the eye, which again will lure in potential buyers.

Give the outside area some T.L.C.
When it is cold and dreary outside this time of year, maintaining your home’s exterior could be the decider between your property being bought straight away or not. By clearing gutters, cleaning window- sills and clearing leaves off the ground, buyers will be more attracted to your property. We also recommend considering outside lighting, as it allows the buyer to see the property from the outside, but can also encourage curious drivers-by to get a better look at the property too!

Now is the time to get your property on the market, so give us a call on 01904 707181 or email us at: admin@yorkshirehomes.co.uk for more information about how we can sell your property.
