The housing market is in flux, mortgage rates continue to fluctuate, but don’t let that dissuade you from selling your home in 2023 if that’s an idea you originally had planned. Properties nearly always represent a great investment, after all, and there are plenty of practices you can implement to make your home as attractive as possible to potential buyers. If you want 2023 to get off to a great start with a litany of offers, here’s the three top tips we’d encourage all sellers throughout Essex to undertake.
Sometimes it’s the most obvious tips that are also the most important. Take. Nice. Pictures. It really is as simple as that. After all, the pictures of your home are the first things that potential buyers will see when you have your house listed for sale. You want to make a great impression instantly, so take the time to tidy your home and make it presentable, trying your best to get your hands on a good camera to render all those important details in the best quality possible. Just bear in mind that if you want to sell your home through an agent, they’ll likely take their own photos, but you can get ahead of this by providing top-quality ones of your own.
Everyone has different tastes when it comes to interior design. Some homeowners want their kitchen’s walls to be bright pink, while others may enjoy a much darker look to really set a chilled mood. However, when you’re selling your property, it’s important to keep the interior relatively simple, using neutral colours like eggshell, cream, and such, in order to appeal to the largest number of potential house buyers possible. It’s probably not worth completely revamping your interior’s look budget-wise, but where you can try not to be too “out there” and keep the average person in mind.
One factor that almost everyone forgets when wanting to sell their home are thermal performance values. Nobody wants to live in an always cold house, you see, so where possible it’s worth spending the money for new energy efficient windows and doors, as you’ll likely make this back when the sale of your household has gone through. Simple things like double glazed windows, airtight doors, and a new roof for your conservatory (if you have one) all contribute to how well your property can retain heat, and improving this can make your property more attractive on the market.
