Despite relentlessly soaring property prices in the UK, experts have warned that such exponential growth is creating a dysfunctional market. While building new homes and reviewing property taxes will help address these issues, owners themselves must be proactive when developing an understanding of the market. They would then realize that the market can scarcely sustain its current prices for much longer and find themselves asking the important question: ‘how do I sell my house quickly?’ We look at the two best ways you can do just that below:
- Remove all Stains and Discoloration – Over time, walls, fixtures and fittings can become stained by the wear and tear of time. This can cause the aesthetic of your property to appear worn, as pristine white fades gradually into grey or magnolia. This will need to be repaired before you list your home for viewings and your first step should be to repaint all interior walls in their original color. Then, use an equal combination of cream of tartar, baking soda and lemon juice to create a paste for cleaning harsher surfaces, including bath tubs and faucets. This will help to eliminate stains and restore the fitting to its former glory.
- Repair Scuffed Flooring and Linoleum – Flooring is another key concern, as this also suffers significant wear and tear over time (especially when you consider high-traffic areas such as the hallway, kitchen and living room). While carpets can simply be replaced relatively cheaply, however, hard floors and linoleum require a little more care and attention if they are to be effectively restored. In terms of the latter, treat all affected areas with white toothpaste and a dry cloth, rubbing the areas in question lightly to preserve the integrity of the surface.
