At Bond Oxborough Phillips we love it when the clocks go forward. The days are longer, the evenings much lighter and people are starting to venture outside again.

Put simply most people love being outside when the better weather arrives.

When spring takes centre stage, people tend to feel happier and serious buyers get out and about in droves.

However, some people who prepare their home for sale either fail to ensure their garden looks as attractive as possible.

At Bond Oxborough Phillips we have many prospective buyers giving us their property wish list. A garden is very often on those lists.

In some cases people are even more specific and state their new home MUST have a south or west facing garden so they can soak up the most hours of sunshine.

A good garden can be a huge plus point for buyers, especially those with young children or planning a family.

You don’t have to be Alan Titchmarsh or Monty Don to make it more appealing. At the very least you should make sure it is tidy, clutter free and colourful if possible.

A trip to the garden centre should provide a lot of ideas about how you can breathe new life into your garden.

So don’t just think outside of the box when getting your property prepared to sale - think outside of your home.
