Spring Sellers Guide

home-selling-guideThink that selling your home is the same process no matter what season it is? We’re here to show you that it isn’t. If you are selling your Perth home this spring, there are a number of ways you can add a little bit of flair, seasonal decorations, and work with the season’s weather to enhance your property even further.

Here are some great tips on selling your home in spring.

Spring cleaning isn’t just a cliché

For most people, your home will be open for inspection while you’re still living there. Your furniture and belongings will still be around the house, but this is the perfect time for a spring clean; to really go through those cupboards and drawers and be smart about what you need and what you don’t to bring when you move on. Once you’ve completed a thorough cleanout you’ll find that you have new places to keep what remains in order while you still call this house home. The less cluttered a home looks, the more likely it is to sell.

Get your garden in order

We all know that spring is when flowers and plants start to bloom in a big way. If you have a front or back garden, make sure it’s looking fantastic: get all that weeding, pruning and watering out of the way before your home inspections start. If it’s looking a little bare, grab some plants that are already in bloom from your local gardening store and plant up a storm – a beautiful, a full and well maintained garden always earns bonus points in the eyes of homeowners.

Bring the outdoors in

Once your garden is up to scratch, think about the inside of your home. Use flowers from your own garden or from a local florist to spruce up the inside of your home – place arrangements on the kitchen table, coffee table or in the foyer to not only provide a welcoming feel, but to have your house smelling and looking lovely. Work closely with your home’s existing interior style to complement colour schemes and themes when you put together a flower arrangement. Buy what’s in season, and don’t be afraid to get creative.

Final checks before inspection

Inspections are a major part of selling your property – it’s how potential new owners can get a feel for the home, and a great way for you to showcase all that your property has to offer. You probably know the basics of preparing your home for inspection: ensuring it is as clean and tidy as possible (this is what your spring clean helps with), a big focus on presentation, and making sure that visitors feel welcome – and as if this home could be theirs one day. So, how do you spruce things up a little for spring? Make sure all the blinds and curtains are open to let in the lovely springtime sun, ensure your garden is not only up to scratch, but absolutely stunning!
