With the summer holiday season fast approaching, you’re probably looking forward to getting some sun, having a rest and exploring somewhere new.
As well as a chance to escape, relax and recharge, holidays can be a brilliant and convenient time to have your home on the market. It’s the only time of year when a single round of tidying lasts so long, and your agent can bring a buyer at any moment without interrupting your daily life or schedule.
Homes and gardens look their absolute best in the summer, so why lose out on a couple of valuable weeks? With demand for property in the Wilton & Salisbury area still riding high, let’s look at how you can keep your home working towards a sale while you enjoy some time off.
While freshly cut flowers look and smell fabulous, they’re unlikely to last the length of your holiday. But don’t worry - you can still keep the air fresh in your home with the following tips:
Buyers always remember how a home smells, and you can fill them with positive memories by giving the air some zing!
Part of being an estate agent is holding keys, dealing with alarms and following locking up procedures - it’s all in a day’s work, and we often carry out viewings while our clients are away.
All we need from you are:
Before you hand over your keys, ask your agent how they protect them. They should be coded, without your address, and stored in a lockable cabinet away from public view.
Even when you’re on holiday, your home can maintain a sense of arrival, so use our checklist below to serve a warm welcome from the moment your viewers reach the front door, to when they step inside.
Finally, if you have any pets staying home while you’re away, share any feeding or cleaning times with your agent to avoid clashes with viewings.
Once you’ve found your flip-flops, selected your swimmers and packed your sun lotion, get your home looking spick and span with these five simple steps.
Setting the stage for viewings not only helps you impress a buyer; it also means ending your holiday on a high note and feeling happy to be home.
We won’t want to bother you unnecessarily while you’re away, and with our five-point plan we can get ahead of potential questions and only get in touch when you want us to.
With all that in place, you canconcentrate on taking a well-earned break, confident that we can still deliver any good news.
