If you are in the process of selling your home, this week’s summer solstice comes as a timely reminder that we are in the middle of one of the most flattering times of year for property marketing.
And with solstice traditionally celebrated as a time to commune with our natural surroundings, we thought this was a great time to remind you of some of the best natural trick to help sell your home.
- Nurture Your Garden
According to a recent survey by PBI Home and Garden, outside space consistently ranks in the top three features that can influence a home sale.
For this reason it is important that you pay attention to your outdoors when attempting to sell your property.
Keep grass trimmed and borders weeded in traditional gardens and consider introducing pots and baskets in courtyards or patio gardens to ensure there is an element of nature on display.
- Use Natural Light
It’s on offer in abundance at this time of year, so make the most of natural light when showing your home to potential buyers.
Keep windows clean and remove overly heavy window dressings to allow the midsummer light to work its magic.
- Bring the Outdoors In
In the same way that supermarkets influence our opinion of them by funnelling us in past the fresh produce, so vendors can capitalise on the persuasive power of nature by introducing elements of the outdoors to their interiors.
Use vases of fresh flowers, house plants, and dried displays as freshening features.
