A lot of homeowners see January as a time for a change because their home is empty and bare after they have taken festive decorations down. If you feel like this, you have the perfect opportunity to make changes to your home that will not only lift your mood, it could help you sell your home.
Decluttering offers a range of benefits, including:
- A decluttered home offers more space, which is what buyers want to see
- A decluttered home removes your personal memories and belongings, making it easier for a buyer to appreciate the home
- A decluttered home is easier to clean
All these benefits make a difference when selling your home, and if you are looking to attract buyers and provide them with strong reasons to choose your home over other properties, the decluttering process is vital. January can provide you with the ideal time and motivation to make changes, so get started to ensure you sell your home in an effective manner.Spend some time outside of your home
The weather is usually cold and a bit miserable in January, so you will want to spend most of your time indoors. However, you will also want to spend some time outside, so make good use of the limited daylight hours on offer and get out into your garden.
A touch of fresh air is always of benefit and if you make improvements to your garden area, you can impress buyers. Don’t forget that the outside of your home is what people see first, and this is where first impressions are formed. A clean and productive garden area or outside area of your home can help make buyers more receptive to what your home has to offer.
Ensure that paths and driveways are clear and safe to walk on. You should make your garden as tidy as possible and if you have time, clear your gutters. Blocked gutters are a problem in winter because they may cause water damage at your home, so there is a practical reason to improve your gutter. However, messy or blocked gutters are unsightly and will create a bad impression, so make sure your gutters are clean and in great condition.
The sooner you start to prepare your home for a sale, the better. If you are looking to sell your home, contact Innovate and we will be more than happy to assist you.
