Are you looking to sell your home in the new year? Then the festive period may be spent looking at nice areas to live, ideas for your NewHome4U or even getting your current home in selling shape, ready for potential buyers. There are so many different things to consider when it comes to selling a home, not least how to make it look appealing to potential buyers; all the way through to what professional help and advice you need to get from an estate agent to maximise your chances of getting a sale.
But how exactly can you get your home ready for sale in the new year?
It Is All About The Presentation Outside
When it comes to selling a house, presentation is key. Kerb appeal is a real thing so you need to make sure that the outside is just as presentable as the inside. Keep the lawn trimmed and make sure the grass isn’t looking overgrown, and give your fences a lick of paint and your hedges a prune if they need it.
Something a lot of people forget to do is clean their windows so make sure yours are sparkling clean. You may even want to check your roof and your guttering for things that need cleaning or fixing. You might not notice the little things but potential buyers will and they will be sure to bring them up if they actually consider buying your property. You don’t want anything to impact upon your asking price so making sure you have covered everything will ensure you don’t have any surprise negotiations from people who wish to buy your property.
Once potential buyers are through the front door, you want to keep their attention. This means staging your property to make it look amazing inside and out. Make sure you tidy your home before any buyers visit - this includes emptying bins, putting away dirty laundry and making the beds.
Give your home a hoover just before those viewing arrive and make sure any kid's bedrooms are as neat and tidy as can be. The same goes for any of your pet's items - pop them away, make sure where they sleep and/or eat is clean and tidy and if possible don’t have them in the property whilst people are viewing it.
Something that works subliminally is smells. Making a property smell good is a great way to capture buyers attention. A scented candle may do the trick! You will also want to make sure that the home is super comfortable, especially when it comes to temperature. After all, no one is going to feel comfortable in a home if it is too hot or too cold!

What Makes A Good Estate Agent?
When it comes to choosing an estate agent, you will need to look for a variety of qualities. These are foundation requirements for any good estate agent, so ensure you make the right choice for you - it could be the difference between saving thousands of pounds and losing a sale completely!
Good estate agents possess up-to-date skills. To be an estate agent, you require a lot of hard work and dedication and need to be able to speak to people, negotiate with people and market yourself. You must also show a true passion for the job and helping buyers find their perfect home. This is exactly what NewHome4U has to offer.
They should also be able to connect with their customers, whether they are working with buyers or sellers. As a customer, you will want to feel that personal connection with those you are working with and know that they have your best interests at heart.
A good estate agent will also have built trust within the industry and with previous customers which can be easily demonstrated to new customers. A brand that is true and authentic and offers genuine customer service will gain people’s trust and thus their business.
