When it comes to selling your home, time is of the essence. A home that has been on the market for a long time is off-putting to potential buyers. Therefore, it is essential that you give everyone a great first impression from the get go. With so much to think about and do it can often be overwhelming to know where to start. This article provides some handy top tips that will help you to sell your home in no time at all.

Clear the Clutter

The first step is to eliminate the clutter with your home. You can tuck this clutter away into the garage, in the attic or put it into storage. When people are visiting a property they like to see something which they can put their own ‘stamp’ onto. Cluttered homes will also appear smaller, so get rid of that clutter!

Spring Clean

Make sure that you do a full clean of your home. There is nothing more off-Putting than an unclean home. If potential buyers see that you don’t properly clean your home then they will also think that there are other areas of the home that you have neglected. Hoover all carpets, wipe down all surfaces and dust your home so that it looks fabulous. You can even hire a full professional cleaning team to come and clean your home for you from top to bottom.

Fix it Up

It is a good idea to hire a tradesman to come and fix any minor issues within your home. Peeling paint, broken lights or leaky faucets will all give a bad impression to potential buyers. They will be making a mental note of all the faulty things they will need to get fixed before they can move in. Take the time to get these things fixed and you could be selling your home in a much quicker time frame.


There are a number of ways that you can improve the appearance of the inside of your home without actually having to spend a lot of money. Some simple cushions, a fresh bouquet of flowers or a sofa throw can transform any room from drab to desirable! Try and appeal to the senses of the potential buyers, so always make sure that you home looks neat, tidy and beautiful and that it also smells great. If it is daylight keep the curtains open as wide as they go to make the room appear brighter.
