Prepare to Spring into action!

It’s still a Wintery 15°c or so outside but with the shortest day of the year behind us, and a few Jonquils and Daffodils beginning to bob up around the place, it won’t be long until Spring is upon us in full bloom.

After a hot dry summer, gardens are now appearing lush and green, making homes even more inviting than ever for prospective purchasers – with this in mind now is the time to start preparing for the rush of buyers that the new season brings every year.

Start the ball rolling by looking at your home from a Purchaser’s point of view. Leave the property and then approach it once again as though viewing it at an open inspection for the first time. Be critical and when you’ve finished the inspection, write a list of the property’s pro’s and con’s.

Now the point of this exercise isn’t to make you all do major renovations – it’s to open your eyes and see the appealing aspects of your home and perhaps a few aspects that have been neglected. Often the smallest of tasks can have a huge impact on the overall presentation of the property. On the outside; look at cleaning out the gutters, removing any unhealthy plants and giving the garden a general grooming and once over. Inside the home look at the general presentation, a room can be instantly enlarged and lifted by simply de-cluttering and minimising the objects in it.

Next, find an Agency whose brand and marketing you want your property to be exposed within and then source the Sales Representative within that Agency who will best suit you and your property needs.

At Toop&Toop your Sales Partner will work alongside you in getting your property on the market at the appropriate time. We’ll also provide you with a visit from the skilled team at “Presenting Beautiful Homes” in order to ensure your home is at its best when the first buyer inspection takes place.

So, start getting ready to Spring into Action!
