Are you ready? Get prepared for the busiest month of year for property movers. Latest research from property portal Rightmove shows that when it comes to selling and buying a home, March is the month to do it. It may be because of the weather change, we’re no longer all snuggled up indoors waiting for Spring, or it may be the idea of being in a new home for the summer months, but whatever it is, March is definitely the time to come to market, which means putting prep work in now.
Give your home a Spring clean
To attract buyers, you want a photogenic home, which means an early Spring clean. So, get out the cob-webber, clean those windows, give the lawn and garden a tidy, and touch up any paint work ready for your property to be photographed for market. If there are dints in the walls, use some Polyfilla and then paint over them, however, don’t be tempted to go over cracks in the walls, as these will still potentially be found by an independent surveyor.
If you are selling to buy another home, now is the time to visit your local, independent estate agent to keep up to date with the latest properties before they even go onto property portals. We have a huge database of buyers, so if you find that perfect property and need to move fast, we should already be able to get some viewings on your home lined up.
Start looking into conveyancers, and talk to your financial advisor, so you know exactly what your budget is dependent on how much you sell your home for. To do this, you’ll want an early FREE valuation, so you know how much your property is worth. It may also be worth having searches done on our current property so you know what may come up during the selling process.
So, if you’re looking to take advantage of the busiest month in the property market, please contact us today for a FREE valuation.
