Sprucing for Springtime

There will never be a better part of the year to freshen up or update your home – even if you are looking at how to sell a house. People are starting to feel re-energised with the return of the sun and the three-layer clothing going back into the wardrobes, and buyers are feeling upbeat, motivated, and ready to buy property in Stockport.

That means it is the perfect time to update your home and embrace interior design trends to get people competing for your property. At Joules Estate Agents Stockport, we thought we would throw out some tips for spring that won’t break the bank.

Let There Be Light

If the sun has got its hat on, the simple way to make your home brighter comes by making the most of natural light while you can. Achieve this by simply moving around your furniture and highlighting key areas of your room.

Try moving your sofa to the sun-facing part of the room close to the window. Don’t worry about draughts, as the warmer weather is just around the corner. If you have a little money to spend on your sprucing, you can always install a roof light to massively increase your natural light and cut your energy bills before you move – that will certainly attract your buyers.

Some Beautiful Colour

Here is a quick and easy option – a fresh coat of paint on your walls. You certainly are not spoilt for choice when it comes to colours for your home to make them more enticing and fresh.

Of course, keeping them neutral is an option that can do the trick.

Spring Clean on Clutter

Nothing spells spring more than getting shut of the built-up clutter from the last two seasons. It’s a rite of passage for many in getting rid of the old from the cold. It just has to be done at some point – and now is that time.

From your cupboards and drawers to under your bed and on top of your kitchen units – get rid of all that stuff making your home look untidy. That is where you need to be ruthless and look through the eyes of a potential buyer – what would they not want to be greeted with? It’s time to ship out the stuff and clean the carpets, windows and worktops.

Walk around your home and make a list of things you see that need somewhere else to be. It is a hack that gets your mind in the mood for showcasing your home’s many charms to potential buyers.
