January is one of the most popular months for home buyers, one of the busiest days for property searches is on Boxing Day, so if you are thinking about selling your home in January, you will need to get it marketed in December.

One of the first things to do is to contact a good local estate agent such as Hawes and Co, they will be able to give you all the advice you will need as well as a good indication of how much your home is worth.

Once you have instructed an agent to market your home you will need to make sure that your home looks at its best.

• Make sure you finish off any DIY jobs

• Maximise the light in your home – put on bedside tables and lighting

• Make sure your home feels warm and inviting – if possible light an open fire if you have one.

• Make sure your home is clutter free

• Create curb appeal by making sure that the front of the property is well maintained, hid any bins, clean up drives and paths and keep flower beds turned over.
