Our professional and experienced sales agents have put together some top tips to help you with preparing your property for market in Peterborough. Have a read through the tips to make sure your home offers the best possible first impression to potential buyers.


Outside Your Home:

The outside of your home is really important because this is the first thing that potential buyers see. Stand outside the front of property and see what a potential buyer could see. If you have grass out the front, make sure it is cut. Fallen leaves need to be swept away too and you could give your borders a quick wedding too. Make sure your front door and porch is clean and cobweb free too. If you will be home for the viewing, consider parking elsewhere to make space for them to park outside. If possible, add a splash of natural colour with potted plants or similar.


Inside Your Home:

While you won’t want to spend huge amounts of money on home improvements if you are moving out, some small repairs may be a great way to increase the value of your home and the chances of your home selling in Peterborough. Pop round the house with a pot of paint and touch up any scratches or marks on walls and doors. This will help to give the impression of a well-kept and maintained home.

You need to ensure that the kitchen and bathrooms are spotlessly clean and tidy for the photos of your home and viewings. Other rooms will need to be tidy, clean and uncluttered. If you have pets or smoke in your home, it can be a good idea to have carpets and curtains professionally cleaned. This will help ensure your home looks and feel clean and fresh.

If possible, remove any excess furniture and personal items. This will help make rooms look larger and more spacious. It will also make it easier for a potential house buyers in Peterborough to imagine living in your home.


House Viewings:

For house viewings make sure your home is warm and well-lit. This will make it feel more homely. If you have a dog, try to use this time to take them for a walk so they don’t get in the way or distract the potential buyer. A quick spray of scent around the home is a great way of ensuring the house smells fresh.

Here at Mandairs, our friendly sales team can complete the viewings for you, or you can do them if you would prefer. If you are carrying out the viewing yourself, don’t be afraid to take your time. You don’t need to talk at them the whole time. Give the potential buyers the chance to take in what they see and ask any questions they might have.
