With Christmas only 5 weeks away, most of us are focused on getting the decorations up, the present shopping done and the menu squared away for Christmas Day.
If you are thinking of placing your home on the market in early 2020, it’s never too early to prepare your home for sale, so now is also a good time to put together a list of tasks for the summer break so that your home is sale ready once the New Year hits.
Although we definitely recommend decluttering and storing away all personal photos, so that potential buyers can envisage themselves in your home, there are many other small tasks that will increase the attractiveness of your property to buyers.
We can’t recommend enough that you enlist a professional cleaner to give your home a good once over before the photos are taken. Most of us never quite attack the dirt behind the sofa, so it pays to invest that little bit extra for a professional touch. Giving your blinds or curtains professional cleaning can work wonders and you’ll be amazed at how much brighter your rooms appear with freshly cleaned window coverings. And don’t forget the small things like changing the light bulbs and smoke alarm batteries.
Like most of us, you probably have a list of small building or electrical jobs to do. Tradies are always in high demand so book them in now as it can take weeks to get an appointment.
Finally, first impressions count so make it work! From adding colourful potted plants as you enter the property, to a welcoming mat and freshly cleaned gutters, it will pay off to set a great mood from the outset.
We are here to help you get the best possible outcome for your property, so give us a call to see how we can help you achieve your property goals in 2020.
