Summer is approaching … fast. If you dream of closing a sale agreement on your house before summer is over you will have to act fast, starting with these tips below. The truth is you’re not the only property owner looking for a quick sale this summer. You will, therefore, have to put in some effort in order to make your listing stand out and sell quickly.
In other words, fix it so that potential buyers will fall in love with it. One way to do this is to improve kerb appeal. The first impression is powerful, especially in the property field so you want potential buyers to be wowed from the moment they first lay eyes on your property whether through online photos or in real-life. If you have a front garden, it’s a great idea to spruce it up. Keep hedges and gardens fresh and free from weeds.
If there is a driveway or paved area leading up to the house, ensure that it is in good condition. Fill in and smooth overall cracks and dents, and if possible update the driveway to a more modern style. Remove dated outdoor accents like garden gnomes and statues and replace them with modern features, or don’t replace them at all. Just leave that space open and free so that prospective buyers can see the potential of the space.
Ensure that the entrance door looks good. Clean off build-ups around the knob and polish door fixtures with metal polish. For the door itself, you can either give it a thorough wash or wipe down if it is a metal door or apply a fresh coat of paint or wood finish for wooden doors. A stylish wreath on the door also helps.
Replace that dated or worn mailbox with a more appealing version or give it an updated look by painting it. Do the same for any house number tag or outdoor lighting fixture you may have on the outside. A fresh coat of paint on the building’s exterior will also go a long way in adding to the appeal of your property.
Modern features such as automated window shades and sprinkler systems will make your home attractive to buyers, so they are great additions if you can afford them.
Above all though, ensure that the adjustments you’ve made are fairly neutral. If they appear to be too personalized, this may turn off buyers who are looking to add their own flair to the property after buying.
By far, the quickest way to sell your house this summer is to get in touch with companies that specialise buying all types of properties fast, for cash. Open Property Group will offer you an instant offer, saving you the hassle of bargaining with potential buyers and paying Estate Agent and Solicitor fees.
The service I received from Open Property Group was very helpful and considerate of my personal circumstances. A thank you to Jason for arranging a cash advance prior to exchanging contracts, and a lump sum when we exchanged. This was a really big help. Your company is simply the best.

Efficient, friendly and fair. From sold to exchanged in less than 6 weeks using OPG. We couldn’t fault the service. A professional service that any seller should use. If we had more property we’d definitely use them again!

The open property group recently purchased a property through my agency and found them to be excellent buyers that were able to exchange contracts within one week at the agreed price. I would highly recommend this company.
Excellent customer service, amazing communication, honest and genuine company who made the process extremely easy and gave any excellent price.
