Spring has been the most popular season to buy and sell a home for as long as we can remember, and with good reason.
Plans are often hatched around the beginning of the year, and as the weather warms up and nature bursts into bloom, those plans swing into action.
Perhaps you want to move your family in time for the new school year to minimise disruption to your children. Or maybe you just love the idea of being in your next home by summer.
Whether it’s more space, a bigger garden, somewhere with room for an office or even downsizing, spring inspires many a move, with sellers and buyers coming out of hibernation.
Of course, as more homes come up for sale, the competition to secure a buyer gets stiffer. So with spring just around the corner, now is the time to prepare your home to stand out in the new season.
With that in mind, our blog this week is packed with tips for successful spring viewings to give your home the edge, and find a buyer fast.
Everything bounces back to life in the spring, and you can embrace that feeling in your viewings with some simple planting to fill the air with freshness and connect with nature. Every buyer notices how a home smells, so why not give their senses a treat?
Plants are such an easy and natural way to add beauty to your home with an extra inviting touch that’s always in season and appeals to everyone.
To shake off the last remnants of winter, nothing beats a deep and rejuvenating spring clean and brush-up. As well as finally vacuuming behind the sofa and dusting the backs of cupboards, turn your attention to these essential areas:
If you’re unsure what to keep on show and what to put away, ask your agent for advice. As an example, if you’ve got a gorgeous Dualit toaster or Kitchenaid, don’t cramp their style with a month’s worth of post.
Selling your home in spring means later sunsets and more evening viewings when it’s light, which helps buyers to make their decision faster. Here’s how you can make it even easier for them.
Along with floor space, natural light is right at the top of the list for most buyers, and they’ll notice if your home feels darker indoors than outside. So it really pays to reflect and amplify as much natural light as possible to make the most of what you’ve got.
We wrote a whole blog on 2023’s interior design trends at the beginning of the year, but here are some quick tips for a swift booster of stylish spring moments that you can take with you when you move.
With just a weekend of your time and a fairly small investment, you can not only evoke the upbeat feeling of spring, but also give potential buyers a fresh and on-trend viewing experience that keeps your home at the front of their minds.
The culmination of all your preparation for spring viewings, and the key to getting the best enquiries, is the photo shoot. Homes are really photogenic at this time of year, and here’s where the right staging with the right photographer taking the right combination of photos becomes invaluable.
