Discover the simple things you can do to get your property ready for sale or rent this summer. We promise you it’ll be music to your ears. A 90-second Fast Thursday read.

Amid all the Covid-19 chaos that’s blighted our lives during the past three months, let’s hope brighter days are on the horizon. Literally.

‘Summer, summer, summertime’ officially starts on Saturday 20 June, and these tuneful tips below will help you prepare for it, especially if you are planning to sell your home or rent your property out.

1 Let’s Go Outside

Ensure your outdoor area is ready by tidying it up where necessary, get any odd jobs sorted and have prospective buyers or tenants swooning and remembering ‘the first time, ever they saw your place.’

2 The Green Green Grass of Home

If you have a garden now is the perfect time to make the most of it. Mow the lawn, prune the bushes, and create a place where people can imagine relaxing on a summer’s evening listening to their favourite songs.

3 Space Oddity 

No list of how to sell or rent a property would be complete without this piece of timeless advice. De-clutter as much as possible. Buyers and renters seek space as much as the musical legend David Bowie did during his Ziggy Stardust phase.

4 Smells Like Clean Spirit

Ok so we’ve played around with the title a little, but it’s worth it. People who are looking at property use all their senses to make their decisions, including smell. So, keep on top of odours with plenty of fresh air, deodorisers, or scented candles.

5 When You’re Cleaning windows

Viewers are put off by dirty windows so give them a good clean and let the sunshine flood in.

For more tips and expert advice, feel free to get in contact with us. We’re sure you’ll be left singing ‘I feel good’ after experiencing our client care.

We’d also love to hear what’s on your playlist this summer. What will you be listening to?

Thanks for reading.
