Getting your House ready to be put on the Market can be Simple

You might have read a bit about my house buying journey on the blog last year; ultimately that all fell through and I'm now happily living with my girlfriend, but the content did really well so today I'm sharing this guest post with you on a similar topic. Enjoy!

Getting your house ready to put on the market doesn’t have to be the absolute nightmare that some people make it out to be. There are lots of different things that you can do to get your home in the best possible condition for this, it’s just a case of going through the space and seeing what needs to be sorted. But, if you make yourself a plan then it shouldn’t be too difficult. In this article, we’re going to be taking a look at some of the common things that need to be completed to get your house ready to put on the market, so keep reading if you would like to find out more.


One of the most common things that people need to do to get their homes ready to go on the market is declutter. Decluttering is one of the things that people often avoid because it takes a lot of time and organizing, but once it’s done, it’s done. Gathering the willpower to actually do it though is a completely different story. However, if you’re going to be putting your home on the market, then this is going to be necessary to do.

There are going to be some items that you are going to want to throw away, and others that you’re going to want to keep but not want in your home. If the latter is true, then you need to look into a storage facility where you can rent a locker for your items. This way, they are out of the way, but you don’t have to get rid of them entirely.

Repairs Are Necessary

There are going to be some repairs that are necessary when you’re putting your home on the market. The last thing that you want to try and do is sneak anything past potential buyers, as the survey will pick it up. Instead, just take the time to complete any repairs such as a leaking roof, or anything like this. Smaller repairs like holes in the walls are also important to take care of, just so that they don’t ruin the aesthetic of the house.

Clean, Clean, Clean

The last thing that we want to mention is that you need to clean the home from top to bottom. Get in all of those nooks and crannies, make sure everything is sparkling and then keep it this way for viewings. If you want, you can hire a professional company to come in and do the cleaning for you, and then you can do whatever you need to in order to keep this standard of clean up! Nobody is going to want to purchase a dirty home, so don’t forget that.

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the things that you should be doing when it comes to getting your house ready to put on the market. If you don’t want your home to stay there for months on end, completing this list of things should help get you a sale faster than if you didn’t do these things. We wish you the very best of luck, and hope that you manage to get all of this sorted asap.
