If you are looking to sell your property quickly there are several simple things you can do to increase your chances of achieving that quick sale.

No 1. By realistically pricing your property you will significantly increase your chances of a quick sale. Your agent will be the best person to guide you on this. Don’t dismiss any low offers without thinking them through; a swift sale may save you money in the long run.

No 2. First impressions count. Think about the way your house is presented both inside and out. A fresh coat of paint can make all the difference. Tidy the front of your house and clean your front door. If you have a front garden make sure it is well maintained.

No 3. The inside of your house should be as free from clutter as possible. Have a good clear out, this will help in preparation for moving. The kitchen is always a key selling point so ensure it is clean and that all dishes are washed and put away. Do all the small jobs you haven’t got around to, such as changing that light bulb and fixing that squeaky door. If a potential buyer is undecided about your property, it is these small things that could be the difference between a sale or them walking away.
