A Glasgow guide to selling property in summer...

A Glasgow guide to selling property in summer...

The Glasgow market is on fire at the moment when it comes to selling your property. We've rounded up our best tips for sellers in Glasgow who want to sell their home this summer.

1) Go green

Glasgow is known affectionately as the 'dear green place', a sobriquet earned through its 70 parks, more green space per square mile than any other UK city. If your property has a balcony, roof terrace, private or communal garden make sure to let them know, this could be its selling point for when it's 'taps aff' weather!

2) Highlight your assets

Accentuate any period features in your property. Glasgow is home to many Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian properties which potential buyers may actively seeking. Clear and clean any feature fireplaces, pull back curtains to show-off any views of the city and point out any working window shutters.

3) Hide your personal touches

You want buyers to connect with your home and envisage themselves living there.  Therefore, put away family photos, sports trophies, collectible items, knick-knacks which connect the property to you.

4) Clean-up

Remove clutter, this can be difficult as they may be items you are emotionally attached to.  Take a step back and pretend you are a buyer or let a friend help point out areas of clutter. It may be beneficial to let your agent help you too. 

5) Put your pets away

The last thing you want is to have your pet running out the front door and getting lost.  If a viewing arrangement has been made it would be best to try and organise them to be taken for a walk or visit a friend or family while the viewing is being conducted.  If you cannot do that, it is best to keep dogs in a penned area in the garden.  Try to keep indoor cats in a specific room.  Most of the time, an indoor cat will hide when buyers come to view your property, but they may panic and try to escape.
