Spring into Action!

newton (1)

If you are planning to put your home on the market in the next few months, now is the time to SPRING into action! Traditionally, the property market booms in springtime, with many buyers and sellers opting to wait out the winter and make their move when the days start to get longer and warmer. With the property market in Bourne as buoyant as it has ever been, we’ve compiled a list so that you can prepare your property for sale.

Have a spring clean

Now is the time to have a good clear out. Prospective buyers are looking for a home that they can make their own and will find clutter a turn-off. And don’t just focus on the living areas and bedrooms. De-clutter the bathroom and remove cleaning and beauty products from view.

General maintenance

Is your home looking a little tired after a year of pandemic living? Freshen up the walls with a lick of paint and do all the odd jobs, like clearing the gutters, that you’ve been putting off.

Get an expert valuation

The property market has been the subject of all sorts of headlines during the past year. Until you speak to an expert, you won’t have a realistic picture of the Bourne property market and what you can expect to get for your property.

Think about presentation

Put yourself in the shoes of a prospective buyer and imagine how they might make use of your property. Perhaps the spare room you use for a home gym would be more appealing if presented as a home office? Speak to us for advice about how to present your home so you can maximise your asking price.

Get planting

More than ever, people are craving outdoor space and access to nature – so give them what they want! Plant colourful flowers at the front and back of your property for immediate impact. If you don’t have a garden, use plant pots to create interest.
