Think­ing of sell­ing your property?

Bray People - - PROPERTY MOVES -

GET­TING your house ready for sale can of­ten be a daunt­ing task.

Pre­sent­ing your home at its best is cru­cial when it comes to catch­ing the eye of a po­ten­tial buyer. The small touches can of­ten help sway their de­ci­sion in favour of your property over an­other they might be con­sid­er­ing.

An in­vest­ment of time and ef­fort, if not money, in spruc­ing up par­tic­u­lar as­pects of the house which have be­come faded and worn, can of­ten help you achieve the price you’re look­ing for.

The fol­low­ing are tips for sell­ers who are look­ing to put their home on the mar­ket:

* Be real­is­tic about the ask­ing price. * Make sure the house is pre­sented well from

the out­side - first im­pres­sions count. * Pick up any lit­ter, cut the grass, trim the hedges, touch up paint­work, put out some planted flower pots. * Re­move all clut­ter from your house. Make sure

win­dows are clean. * Try to get rid of any strong smells, i.e. an­i­mals or cook­ing. A good tip - have a pot of cof­fee on the brew or some home bak­ing in the oven. Fresh flow­ers al­ways look well. * Have a BER (Build­ing En­ergy Rat­ing) Cer­tifi

cate in place. * Check Ti­tle is in or­der for smooth and quick

sale.
