If you are putting your home on the market then there are several things that you can do in order to help it to sell quickly. When it comes to selling your house the first impression really does count. You will want to make your home look as beautiful as possible to potential buyers. There are so many things to consider that it can often be overwhelming to know where to start. This article provides some simple top tips that will help you to sell your home in the shortest amount of time possible. 

Tidy the Entrance

The first step is to make sure that the entrance to your home is clean and tidy. This is the area that buyers will see first, so you should spend some extra time making it look more attractive and inviting. Sweep away any leaves and tidy up the garden area. You should also make sure that all fixtures and fittings, such as the porch lights or the doorbell, are all functioning correctly. You can add some nice finishing touches by placing two small olive trees either side of the doorway, or by giving the front door a fresh coat of paint.

Spring Clean

When it comes to the inside of the home you will want to make sure that everything looks spotless. Have a full spring clean of the house from top to bottom, if you haven't got the time to do this then you can always hire a professional cleaning team to do it for you. Make sure that you dust away all cobwebs and give all surfaces a polish so that they look sparkling clean.

Fix it Up

Have a walk through the entire property and make a note of anything that is damaged or broken. This can include things like stains in the carpet or dripping faucets. You should then have these fixed or cleaned as necessary. They may not seem like much, but any damaged things in the home can put buyers off as it indicates that you are not properly taking care of the property and that there could be other unseen issues with the house.


All of the clutter also needs to go. You can take the time to sort through all of your belongings and give or sell any items you no longer want or need. Any clutter that you can’t get rid of can either go into storage or into the attic. When potential buyers come to visit your property they will want to be able to imagine what they can do to it in order to transform it into their own home. Clutter not only looks unattractive, but it also makes a house appear smaller. A few simple things around the home, such as candles and flowers, can make all the difference to the feel of the interior, so take a little time to add some of these things. 

Follow the above tips and you should be well on your way to selling your property in no time at all. Good luck
