How to prepare your home for a summer sale in Surfers Paradise

By Andrew Bell

Everything looks better in the summer sun, and that includes your Surfers Paradise property.

With perfect weather and lush greenery all around, your home will truly stand out to buyers. Make sure, however, that you take this spring to get everything in top shape before putting your home on the market.

Spend some time in the garden

Your lawn and garden will be a prospective buyer’s first impression of your home, so make sure everything is neat and orderly. Mow the lawn, edge garden beds and cover unsightly dirt with stones or mulch.

Colourful flowers will definitely enhance your landscape design, but don’t worry if you aren’t too keen on gardening. You can always purchase potted plants, hanging baskets or window boxes. These are also great option for sellers who might have a balcony in place of a back garden.

Brighten things up

With fourteen hours of daylight during peak summer months, life on the Gold Coast is wonderfully bright. Make sure your home is too.

There are a few ways to brighten up your home for a summer sale, including:

  • Changing dated or unattractive light fixtures
  • Installing new lights (or simply purchasing lamps) in dim rooms
  • Adding a fresh coat of white or pastel coloured paint to your walls
  • Cleaning your windows
  • Replacing any heavy blinds with lighter shades or curtains

Up your curb appeal in unique ways

Curb appeal doesn’t stop at the garden, so make sure to add some special touches to other areas of your home’s exterior. This can be anything from painting the front door to installing a new mailbox.

In the summer, Australians love to get outside and enjoy the sunshine, so renovate in a way that will make your home seem like a fun, pleasant place to live. Great projects include:

  • Building a fire pit
  • Staining your deck
  • Planting a fruit tree

Any season is a great time to sell your home in Surfers Paradise, where property prices are high and rising. For selling tips or to find out more, reach out to the team at Ray White Surfers Paradise.
