What’s stopping your house from selling?


When you put your house on the market, it’s natural to get a little bit impatient during the process. Selling a house can be a time consuming process at the best of times as it’s important to get the price that you want along with getting everything properly finalised. However, there are certain things that can make your house take longer to sell. As your experienced Cardiff estate agents, we thought we’d explore some of these factors and what you can do to ensure a quicker sale.

Unkempt gardens

We’ve already explored how a well-presented garden can add value to your home, but a badly maintained garden can have the opposite effect. Most property viewers, including families with small children, will be paying extra attention to the garden.They’ll want to see a neat, tidy, well-kept space that’s safe for their children to play in. Understandably, a shabby, unmaintained and overgrown garden will leave them running for the hills! You don’t have to do anything fancy, just make sure the lawn is mowed and if you have decking, ensure that nothing is broken or sharp.

Keep it clutter free

Garage Storage

A clutter-free home is essential to win over would-be buyers. Your potential buyers want to envision themselves living in your home, and a cluttered space will stop them from being able to do this. Decluttering your home can be therapeutic, but it can also be stressful at times! Fortunately, we’ve already compiled a guide to decluttering to give you all the tips you need.

Let there be light

A lack of natural light is something you haven’t got much influence over. However, there are ways to give the impression of extra light. With glass and clever mirrors, you can flood your home with as much sunlight as possible. More than anything, though, you need to ensure your home looks clean, tidy, bright, attractive and well-maintained.
