Tips to sell or let your property in the winter months

Looking to sell your house this winter? Follow our top tips and you will sell quickly and get a premium price.

As first impressions count make sure you have swept any leaves and dirt away from the front area. Maybe plant a few winter plants in some pots for a splash of colour, paint the front door if it is looking a bit tired. Paths and drives can look a bit dirty so a jet wash or scrub with hot soapy water can work wonders!

Once inside make sure the property is well lit especially if the viewing is taking place in the evening. Talking with your agent to make sure they arrive early and get the stage set for the viewings: closing curtains, putting on lights and lamps plus making sure the heating is turned up for that warm, toasty feeling when you enter the house.

The old adage of freshly baked bread, fresh cut flowers and the aroma of coffee apply even more so in the winter months. Staging your home with props and pleasant aromas really does help set the scene and make the property appealing to prospective purchasers and tenants if you are looking to let your property.

Gardens can be quite bare and bland at this time of year but keep them clear of leaves, keep the grass trimmed where possible and even up any uneven and unsightly bushes and hedges. As with the front garden try and place a splash of colour with colourful pots and planters (you can always take them with you when you move!) Solar lights are inexpensive and also easy to use and can make a big difference to outside spaces.

At any time of year the placement of premium branded goods is always a bonus. A bottle of premium handwash and lotion in the bathroom, perfume on the dressing table or quality goods around the house give the illusion of the high life being lived and people aspire to live the good life!   

Follow these tips and you will give your property the edge at this time of year.
