Moving during the summer

Moving during the summer

Many people may have thought about moving home but decided to wait until after the end of the summer holidays; however, there are a number of good reasons why you should sell your home and find somewhere new during the summertime and a number of ways in which to take advantage of the season to make your home more marketable.

One good tip if you are planning to move and are trying to sell your home is to make certain that your garden looks as bright, colorful and welcoming as possible.  Take advantage of the beautiful summer weather by showing off your garden furniture and displaying your freshly cut grass and attractive hanging baskets.

It is always a good idea to think about doing some DIY and making some minor improvements to your home before relocation.  Things such as missing tiles, loose door handles and wobbly shelves are often overlooked by people trying to sell their home, but these can be off-putting to potential buyers.  The upside is that it is usually cheap, easy and quick to fix them, and doing so is likely to improve the overall appearance and feel of your home.

Another good piece of advice is to neutralize your home by reducing the amount of personal clutter.  Minimize your personal possessions, as a blank canvas will make it easier for potential buyers to imagine how their own belongings, furniture and personal style will look in the property.
