As the property market picks up around the nation, homeowners looking to sell up may want to take advantage of current favourable conditions.
While there are a lot of things to consider before selling, embarking on a bit of DIY work around the property should be high on your list - enhancing your chances of finding a buyer.
You don't have to spend thousands to get your home looking good, a few coats of paint can do wonders and instantly brighten up the place.
It's also worthwhile spending some time on DIY painting your home's exterior as well. The outside of a house is the first thing that prospective buyers will see, so make some effort to improve its appearance.
Painting a house can be a big job, so if you want to take on something smaller, why not paint all the trims and window frames? This will make the outside of your home look brighter and more appealing.
Cleaning the windows - outside and in - can also make a big difference. Use a high pressure hose from your local Kennards Hire to reach the higher windows.
Giving the garden a bit of love can also boost the look of your property - you don't need to spend hours and hours gardening, but tidying up the front and backyard will make your property just that extra bit appealing to buyers.
