#5 Must-do steps to get your home spring-sale ready

by Kate Watt, Marketing Manager 8 September 2022

If you’ve been watching too many renovation shows you could be forgiven for thinking you need a full makeover squad and super-size budget before you put your house on the market.

It is simply not true.

In fact, sellers can easily overspend on a renovation that doesn’t add to their sale price.

Before you get spendy talk to local agents about a sale strategy for your home.

In most cases, you’ll be better off investing your time and energy into a proper spring clean and some simple maintenance rather than a full scale reno.

Here are #5 ways to spruce your home ready for a spring sale.

  1. Make a front-of-house impact. Pressure clean your driveway, clean your house exterior, and add some fresh paint to your fence and front door. Renovation done.
  2. Update old taps and light fittings. These accessories can date your home so get to Bunnings for some affordable updates and bring your home into the current millennium.
  3. Clean your windows. It’s a simple one but easily overlooked. Clean the glass, the frames, the ledges, the curtain and buyers will see the view and potential, not the dust and dirt.
  4. Declutter your house. Create space for buyers to imagine their furniture and belongings in your home. It will save on removalist fees if you’ve boxed up your goodies in advance.
  5. Tame your garden. Mow lawns, tidy edges, do the weeding and trim bushes and bushy trees to create clearance off the ground. It all gives a sense of space and tidiness.
