11 January 2011

Follow these top tips for making your property as saleable as possible in 2011.

As the New Year begins many householders will be looking to put their property on to the market. If you are looking to move house, follow these tips on how to get your house ready for a sale.

Figures from the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) show that the number of house hunters across the country is on the rise. Many banks and Building Societies are offering attractive deals to both first-time buyers and those looking to remortgage, so it is always advisable to compare mortgage deals online before moving house.

Despite dips in property prices and continued economic uncertainty, recent research from Lloyds TSB shows that there are about 228 streets in England and Wales with an average house price above £1 million, and 36 with an average price of more than £2 million.

Tips for Selling your House Fast

Be Sensible: The value of properties across the board has dropped in most areas during the last few years, so it is crucial that you get an accurate valuation of your home.

Presentation: First impressions count when it comes to selling your home and 45% of NAEA members say that tidying up clutter is the best way to increase the saleability of your home.

Build Out: Increasing the value of your home will, more often than not, increase the saleability of it. Creating an additional open living space is often a good tip for increasing the value of a property.

Energy Efficiency: With the cost of heating your home on the rise, many households are choosing to make their home more energy efficient. Installing draft excluders or improving the insulation of your loft or boiler are simple ways of improving energy efficiency and there are government grants available for many homeowners.
