Make your property more attractive to potential buyers

Selling a house can be a very stressful experience as the house owner tries to get the house and garden looking its best for potential buyers. If you are trying to sell your property it is easy to forget that the garden is nearly as important as the house décor when it comes to creating a good first impression and an untidy outdoor space can put people off before they even get through the door.

A simple fix is to make sure any lawned areas are mown and that the edges are neat as this immediately makes the garden look tidier. Any worn patches on the lawn can be treated with grass seed if it is the right time of year of failing that new turf can be bought if the lawn is really bad.

Making sure that the overall appearance of the garden is tidy is essential to give that good impression so any old, broken or outgrown children’s toys should be dispatched to the local recycling centre. Wood chippings on top of weed matting can be put down on any areas of the garden that are prone to weeds and can be bought from a garden centre or supermarket.

Buying a few colourful planters to dot around the patio area is one way of brightening up the area or alternatively put a couple at each side of the front door to provide a welcoming feel to the property entrance.
