Top Tips for selling your home


Selling your home is a big decision – and you want to get it right. The new Purple Bricks North Dorset team are on hand with some insider advice.
Small details like placing fresh flowers in your home not only make it more welcoming, but also help buyers feel confident that you’ve cared for the house.

Putting your home on the market is a huge life decision and one which takes a lot of careful consideration and thoughtful planning.
Purplebricks are proud to work with over 600 local experts located across the UK, each dedicated to taking you through the whole process of selling your home, from start to finish.
Here to help you on your journey to getting sold, Purplebricks local expert and North Dorset resident, Chellie
Elkington, shares her top tips for preparing your home for market:

First Impressions
Ensure the outside of your property is clean, clear and tidy, including entrance ways and the front garden.
Potential viewers will often pass by before deciding whether to book a viewing so it’s important to create
a good first impression, starting with your home’s curb appeal.

One of the most cost- effective tips for home selling is to declutter your home. This includes keeping all surface spaces clear, without interfering with your daily life. By removing or hiding unnecessary items out of sight, you are maximising the perception of space in your home.

A new face
Freshen up scuffed paint marks by giving your walls a fresh lick of paint, where needed. While this is not
essential to do before selling, it will ensure your property is presented in the best way possible.

A good deep clean
Give your home a spring clean to show off the property in its best light. This includes descaling the shower, cleaning the windows, ensuring beds are made with freshly washed bedding and mending anything that’s broken.

It’s in the detail
Think about those little touches that make a home feel welcoming. Fresh flowers are always great to have around the home for photos and viewings as they show you’re making an effort to sell while helping
potential buyers to feel more confident that you’ve looked after the house during your ownership.
