Whilst the majority of us don’t really want to see the end of the Summer, there is no doubting that the seasons are once again beginning to change as Summer rolls into Autumn, and the nights start to draw in. It’s time to tidy up the garden, and give the house a bit of a spruce up before the wetter weather sets in. You might even want to consider SPRUCING UP YOUR PROPERTY FOR SELLING OR LETTING
Remember that in my last newsletter I said that statistically Autumn appeared to be one of the best seasons to let or sell your Alfreton or Ripley property well, the market does look buoyant at the moment, you can’t help but notice all of those For Sale and To Let boards popping up around our local streets. So.. IS YOUR HOUSE READY FOR THAT NEW BUYER OR TENANT?
If you’re looking to sell or let your house, bungalow, flat or apartment, then you need to give the property an objective once over, try and see the property through the eyes of that prospective buyer or renter............ what do you see? Is the exterior or interior of your property in need of a little refurbishment or restoration? A lick of paint, tidying the garden, changing a carpet or two and making those little repairs that you’ve been putting off through the Summer will give your property more kerbside appeal and help it to pass muster. Remember, your property is in competition with lots of other properties in the area so if you can present it at its absolute best when you put it on the market then it will really look like a super property to buy or let and it will certainly STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD and your property should then sell or let much faster than its competitors. Why not pick up some of those glossy home improvement magazines to get the latest styles and colour schemes, neutral isn’t always about magnolia, but it is about a clean looking presentable property that catches the eye. Contact your local decorator, carpet supplier or window cleaner to help you get your property looking great.
There are some very helpful Builder’s Merchants, Builders, Plumbers and Electricians and DIY Stores in the Alfreton & Ripley area that can assist you with any type of work that you need to carry out on your property. Just check the local papers, several of which are free that fall through your letterbox and get some good advice on how you might make your property the PROPERTY OF CHOICE in the Alfreton and Ripley area for that prospective customer.
It doesn’t always take a lot of hard work you know to achieve the result that you want, you just need to GET THE RIGHT ADVICE FROM THE RIGHT PEOPLE and sometimes, with very little investment in tools and materials you can produce a first class product which really has kerb appeal. Your property is probably the biggest investment that you’ll ever make, so if you maintain it and keep it looking good, it can repay you by achieving the best sold price possible or the quickest let to a tenant.
