Selling in the New Year

Preparing your home for sale in the upcoming year is a wise decision. Explore the following tips to ready your house for sale and enhance its attractiveness to prospective buyers.

  1. Focus on Key Rooms: Start by concentrating on the key areas of your home, particularly the kitchen and bathroom. These rooms are crucial to many buyers. Consider updating them to make them look fresh and modern.
  1. Kitchen Updates: If you’re updating your kitchen, think about the theme and materials you want to use. Laminate worktops are cost-effective, followed by wood. Premium materials like quartz and granite will cost more. Plan your kitchen updates ahead of the festive season to ensure everything is finished in time.
  1. Kitchen Paint: A fresh coat of paint can work wonders. Consider using popular colours for 2024, like earthy greens, which are currently trendy. Avoid stark white kitchens, as they are less sought after.
  1. Bathroom Upgrades: While overhauling the entire bathroom can be expensive, you can still make significant improvements by replacing smaller items such as soft-close toilet seats and shower doors. Update dated details like tiles and flooring to give your bathroom a modern look.
  1. Ventilation: Ensure your bathroom has good ventilation. Lack of proper ventilation can be a turn-off for potential buyers as it may signal potential damp issues. Consider installing an extractor fan if your bathroom doesn’t have one.
  1. Small Details Matter: Pay attention to small details throughout your home. Sometimes, it’s the little things that can make a significant difference in how your property is perceived.
  1. Timing is Key: Try to complete these updates before the new year. Many buyers start their home searches in January, so having your house ready for the market at this time can be advantageous.

Beat the rush by booking a valuation with us now.

Selling in the new year is a smart move. You’ll have less competition in early January when more buyers are looking. We handle most preparations before Christmas, so you can relax. Get your home valuation, complete paperwork, and be ready to list on January 2nd. Enjoy the holidays and start the new year ahead of the game!

Remember, when preparing your home for sale, it’s essential to prioritise updates that will make your property stand out and appeal to potential buyers. Making these improvements can potentially result in a higher sale price and a faster sale. Good luck with your home sale!
