Spring into Action: Top Tips for Selling Your Home Quickly

Whether you are searching for tips on presenting your home in a way that will attract buyers or seeking advice to sell your property fast, you’ve come to the right place. Whatever the case, trying to sell your house quickly can be incredibly stressful.

If you’re considering selling your home this spring and want a quick sale, here are our tips to help you find a buyer quickly.

8 Ways to Attract Buyers

Be Flexible on Price

When it comes to selling your property, good estate agents will be able to give you a clear idea of the price range that it falls into.

Ideally, you’ll get the full asking price, and if you’re lucky, you may be offered more if a couple of potential buyers want to compete.

However, if you want a quick sale, you should be prepared to accept an offer. You should be willing to be flexible, especially if the property looks tired and some significant components need updating, such as the boiler or windows.

Have an amount in mind that you would be willing to accept, but don’t force yourself into accepting a low offer if you won’t be happy with the final price.

Find the Right Buyer

While it’s natural to want to achieve the highest possible price for your property, it may be worth sacrificing a small amount to complete a sale as quickly as possible.

For example, one buyer may offer you the full asking price but be part of a long chain, whereas a first-time buyer may come in with a slightly lower offer but with no chain to consider.

So, if you’re looking to sell quickly, a buyer who’s ready to go soon, even if it costs you a bit of money in the short term.

Give Your Home a Lick of Paint

Buyers will be more attracted to a property ready to move into immediately, and you don’t need to spend a fortune getting the place ready, either. A fresh coat of paint will do the job, even if it’s a touch-up rather than a complete paint job.

Go for neutral colours, too, such as an off-white. Buyers want to imagine themselves living in the property they’re viewing, so giving them a blank canvas will be far more appealing than jungle-themed wallpaper, for example.

Boost Kerb Appeal

Many buyers will decide about a property before they’ve even stepped foot inside.

If you’ve allowed the front garden to become overgrown, or your overflowing wheelie bins are blocking the path, it’s time to get the gardening gloves on and tidy it up.

Add some plants or two or some pots, and touch up any paintwork if you want to make an impression.

Show off your Home’s Assets

You want to show your property in its best light, highlighting everything good.

For example, you may have been using the second bedroom as a dumping ground for all your old coats or magazines, but buyers will want to see how they can use it as a second bedroom.

So clear all the clutter out of sight, make the bed and let buyers see what it’s meant for use.


This ties in nicely with showing off your property’s assets. Buyers want to see a property that’s well looked after and don’t want to be overwhelmed with clutter when they walk through the door.

So, if you have been using the understairs cupboard for junk or piling up paperwork in the sitting room, it’s time for a clearout. And there’s the bonus of potentially making a few pounds by selling unwanted possessions.

Fix any Minor Issues

When living in a place, it’s easy to overlook a missing lightbulb, a damaged fence or a cracked window.

However, if you’re looking to sell, then these minor issues are all that buyers could pick up on, which might put them off making an offer.

Some buyers may see minor issues like these as a sign of potentially more significant issues elsewhere, giving them the impression that the house isn’t generally well maintained.

So before you come to sell, sort out those odd jobs you’ve been putting off.

Clean Your House

You don’t need to get the professionals in or spend all day doing a deep clean, but before any viewings, make sure you’ve whizzed around with the vacuum and a duster, emptied the bins and tidied up.

You’d be amazed how much of a difference it can make to buyers, and it’s further proof that you take pride in your property and maintain it to a good standard.
