The 3 Small Details You Need to Fix Before You Sell Your Property

Selling your home or business can sometimes feel like selling a part of your own body; it's hard, intrusive, and feels like the wrong thing to do the whole time. However for many people, it makes sense to take a step back and sell their business or to look for a change in lifestyle and move houses, so it is not always a bad thing.

When you do decide you want to sell your property you should try and maximise the profits because you only get to sell it once. Here are three things you should do that can up the price of your property. 

Kerb Repairs

It is easy to overlook your kerb as you will very rarely spend much time out the front of your house or business but for potential buyers, they will notice a crumbly or broken kerb straight away. A bad kerb will be their first impression of your property and you never want to start off on the wrong foot when it comes to a sale so make sure your kerb is looking good as new with kerb repairs. Kerb repairs focus on fixing, replacing or upgrading your kerb so that it looks good as the day it was originally made. Don't take a risk of losing potential buyers before they even enter your property, get kerb repairs onsite and have peace of mind going forward.

Professional Clean

When it comes to cleaning there is regular cleaning, like you or your employees could do, and then there is a professional clean that is a tier above anything you could do on your own. Professional cleaners use specialised technology, unique techniques and have a lot of experience which make them best suited to giving your property a full and thorough cleaning. A service like this does not cost that much, especially when compared to how much it will increase the overall look and feel of your home or business. 

Fix Your Garden

Along with your kerb, the front yard is the first thing people will see when they arrive to inspect your house and if it is overgrown or even just looks uncared for then it can put people off. Keeping it neat and trim is all you need to do and that usually takes only a couple of hours at most to achieve. Don't try anything crazy either, you want your garden to be like a blank canvass that potential buyers can imagine themselves changing. If you are selling a business then you may have some plants or grass out the front of your property: do not overlook them! It can be so easy to forget what your facade looks like from an objective point of view and you can easily overlook some overgrown weeds. Make sure all of them are trimmed down and look neat.

About Me

Building an Home Extension

Hello, my name is Wendy and this is my construction blog. I do not work in the construction industry myself, but I have spent the last 7 months of my life with construction workers and contractors as they designed and built an extension to my property. I had always dreamed of extending my home so we could enlarge the kitchen and have an additional bedroom on the second-floor. My husband always objected, but when I won some money on the lotto, he couldn't stop me. The contractors were really great and I got a real insight into the industry so I decided to start this blog.
