7 simple tips to sell your property faster and for a better price

Many people wrongly believe that selling a property is a quick and easy process and they will get the money they want effortlessly. However, this couldn't be further from the truth. You can learn how to sell your home quickly by following these 7 tips that we offer here: 

1. Do Some Simple Repairs 

Simply replace the damaged tiles, cover the cracks on the walls or the doors and change the silicone or the sealant of the toilets in the bathroom to make the house look in perspective. These are simple tasks that can be done for very little money. 

2. Tidy up the Rooms 

It is possible that you and your children are still using your bedrooms. But that is no excuse for not keeping them tidy whenever there are viewers coming to the property. This will indicate that you have taken good care of the property during your stay there.

3. Don't Use the Rooms as Storage 

Perhaps you have an empty room and you use it as a storage room. However, from the moment you put the house up for sale, make sure you start making good use of that room. For example, you can place a desk and a chair in it to make the room look like an office. 

4. Smoothing the Walls 

Artex on the walls is outdated and almost nobody wants it anymore. So much so that customers are willing to pay significantly more money for a house with smooth walls. We must also take into account that the refurbishment process can be long and cumbersome. Instead of spending €3,000 on such task, you can gain more than €10,000 of extra profit in the sale of the property.

5. Depersonalise the House 

Before you have your first viewing, it is important that you remove your photos and the decorative personal items. It is proven that customers are more predisposed to the purchase when this is done because they think they can move in quickly. 

6. Beware of Odours 

There is nothing worse than a house that smells bad. Use plants, flowers and fruits to make the environment fresh and pleasant. 

7. The Kitchen is a very Important Room 

Aside from the bathroom, the kitchen is another important room that most viewers will inspect. In most cases, the kitchen is one of the best indicators of the property's condition so focus on creating a good impression of your kitchen. 

Pay attention to these tips and you can be sure that you will be able to sell your house quickly and get the best possible price for it.
