The great spring selling season is almost here, so now is the time to get your property ready. Start with these simple tips:
This is essential. Remove clutter and any excess furniture, you want to ensure that your home is easy to move around and as spacious as possible. Clear off tables and benches and avoid having too many personal items out on display. Remove heavy or dark drapes to ensure there is plenty of light and airflow throughout the home.
Pay extra attention to areas of the home most used in summer such as decks and gardens. Maximise the garden and make it look picturesque. Re-mulch, prune, and relay turf if necessary. Pressure clean decks and paved areas. For those with a pool, make sure it is sparkling clean and the fencing is secure and up to Council standard. Don’t forget the front yard, creating a great first impressions is vital.
Gutters are a big issue and must be cleaned and in a good state of repair.
During winter, debris from trees clutter gutters and block water flow, not to mention become a fire hazard. Issues from blocked gutters will be picked up in a pest and building inspection. Additionally, make sure the roof is well maintained and if you have solar heating that it is in good working order.
Tend to all those little jobs that are often put to the side. Fix leaky faucets, broken gates, doors and draws that don’t close property. Replace cracked tiles, clean walls and patch any holes. Any repainting should be done in light neutral colours and avoid textured and bright feature walls.
Make sure your windows and drapes are clean and dust blinds, window sills and skirting boards. Shampoo carpets and if possible replace flooring that is stained, damaged or worn and refinish hardwood floors that are scratched and have lost their sheen.
