 Looking at selling your house? To make sure you have the  advantage over other houses on the market in your area, Emma Perry, Sales Manager in Boyden’s Sudbury, has put together some really useful hints and tips for a quick sale at the right asking price.


Create a good first impression

Make sure you clear the front garden, cut the grass and remove weeds, sweep the path.  Ensure the front door is clean and the letterbox, etc., is clean and shiny.


Take the time to remove all un-used belongings, box up books and discs and donate or borrow/rent storage space elsewhere.  Pare back display units, clear kitchen work surfaces and tidy away the laundry.  Push furniture back to the walls to present maximum floor space. If you’re looking to store those bulkier items or clutter you don’t have the time or inclination to get rid of straight away, pop to Sudbury Secure Storage, who offer short and long term affordable leasing whilst your house is up for sale.

Spring-clean and neutralise

It is important to offer the property in a clean and orderly way, keeping doorways unobstructed to allow free flowing transition from room to room.  Where necessary spruce up the paintwork with a fresh lick of paint, keep colours ideally white, cream and pale grey.

Light and airy

Ensure rooms are airy by opening a window a little, remove pet beds and other such articles and it is actually a good idea to pop on a pot of coffee or have some fresh flowers around.  Keep the curtains open to enhance the natural light.

Extra touches that can make all the difference

  • Make certain that the beds are always made and sofa cushions are plumped.
  • No sign of dirty dishes.
  • Clear away coats and shoes.
  • Toilet seats must be down.
  • Beware trip hazards.
  • Empty bins/waste paper baskets.
  • Keep laundry out of sight.
