Searches For Selling Your House Fast Have Had A 50% Increase: 4 Tips To Prepare Your Property To Sell

by uma


In the last month, searches for ‘sell house fast’ have had a 50% increase, with this number only expected to rise.  

London based Estate Agents Douglas & Gordon has put together a helpful ‘Preparing A Property For Sale’ guide that’s perfect for those looking to make the process as seamless as possible.  

On average, one-third of sales offers agreed do not reach exchange. Often this is simply because of the time it takes to exchange the contracts. 

When you’re selling a property, save yourself time and hassle by having the right team of solicitors behind you before an offer is even made. 

How to prepare for a house viewing 

Once you have all the legal paperwork sorted with your solicitor, the hard part is over; the next part is making sure your property stands out so you can attract a great buyer.  


  1. Paint It – Make your property pop with a new coat of paint, especially if it is overdue. It does not always need to be much; make sure you touch up the small knicks and those corners’ cracks. 


  1. Tidy it – Your property should be airy and open! Cleaning up and getting rid of unnecessary clutter will make the space more appealing, especially in the common areas like the sitting room and kitchen. Open those blinds and let the light in! 


  1. Fix-It – Go through your property and fix all the little things you have got used to over the years, like a loose door handle or a squeaky hinge. Don’t let a minor detail put off a buyer. 


  1. Photograph It – Professional photos attract more buyers and may help you find that offer you’ve been looking for.
