How To Put Your Home In A Strong Position For A Sale

You could easily be put off the idea of trying to sell your house at the moment when we tell you that in September, the number of houses sold in the UK dropped by nearly 40%. Nationwide has also predicted a 8-10% fall in house prices in 2023.

If you want to sell up and move though, there’s still a great possibility of you managing it, so long as your property is appealing enough to buyers. There’s every chance it will be if you do the necessary work involved.

Sort the paperwork first

You will likely have heard of a house sale falling through because a seller wasn’t able to provide an important piece of documentation to a buyer. Don’t be that person!

When looking to organise a sale, check to see if you have the land registry documents for the property, along with its Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) and gas safety certificate.

If you’ve had your windows replaced in recent years, you should also have a FENSA or CERTASS certificate, or if it’s a living space that’s been installed, dig out the planning permission and building regulations certificates.

Brighten your living environment

Space is always a major selling-point as buyers can never have enough of it. To get that roomier feel in your home, it helps if it receives lots of natural light.

It will if you position mirrors in all the right places and be firmly committed to keeping the glass in all your windows nice and clean. But don’t leave it there.

Revert to lighter colour schemes throughout the house, attend to any broken lights, move anything that blocks light from coming in, and either buy some smaller furniture or see if it can be rearranged somehow to create more floor space. The installation of a large sliding door will also provide a passage for the sun.

The interior of a house

Install windows with a wow factor

It’s always interesting to know what buyers are looking for most and the HomeOwners Alliance uncovered in a recent poll that 71% of people consider “Windows in good condition (no signs of rot or flaking paint)” as the most vital kerb appeal feature.

How are your windows looking? If they look past their best, an urgent replacement window is needed and there are plenty of them to choose from at Clearview.
