Home selling tips: Is your garden glorious?

 
A garden of your very own is something of a rare commodity for many people who live in North London, especially in areas like Muswell Hill, Crouch End and Highgate. They can come in all shapes and sizes. But, are you making the most of it?
 
It doesn't matter how big or small your outside space is, make the most of it. Show it off with garden furniture, even a small bistro table can work wonders to show your buyers that this is a useable space.

Use an old mirror to make it feel larger. If you have high stone walls that enclose your garden, consider fence cladding and a climbing plant to make a simple retreat for book reading in the summer. 

Got a large garden? Cut the lawn and strim the edges, it makes a HUGE difference. Make your garden look easy to manage, it will be more appealing to a greater audience and will sell quicker. 
 
A garden is on many a buyers check list, even more so than an extra bedroom might be. Make your garden like extra room to tip the scales in your favour. 
 
You can:
  • Mend broken fence panels and paint them to make your garden look like a place your buyer can spend their time.
  • Low fences between you and the neighbours can be off putting; try using large plants in planters create greater privacy from your neighbours and make your buyers feel more at ease.
  • Bring in colour; it's a great way to cheer up a dark day. Use bright pots too, then you can take them with you when you leave.
 
Got a question? Call us on 020 8432 2800. 
 
Until next time.
 
All the best,
