First impressions last and nothing could be truer when it comes to presenting your property for sale. Effectively presenting your property is the key to achieving the the maximum price when it comes to competing with similar properties in the market place. The more desirable your property appears, the more interest you will generate and the better your sale price is likely to be.
Tip #1 Declutter
Remove any excess items by clearing away any clutter and placing into storage temporarily. This will make the rooms appear as spacious as possible.
Tip #2 The garden
Make sure the front and rear gardens look appealing and inviting by pruning trees, weeding and mulching the garden beds. Add some attractive pot plants for a splash of colour.
Tip #3 Inside the house
Fix any minor and obvious repairs as necessary. Basic maintenance work will help to ensure buyers don’t find any faults.
Tip #4 Light and bright
Clean windows inside and out and replace any broken light bulbs. Making the home feel light and bright makes the rooms feel bigger and the property more attractive. Open curtains and blinds to let in natural light.
Tip #5 Warmth and Feel
Create warmth by preparing your home to suit the temperature of the day. If it’s cold, light fires, turn on patio heaters and heating. If it’s hot, turn on fans and cooling systems. This will make your home feel warm and inviting. Bad smells are the single biggest turn off for prospective buyers. Don’t just cover them up, fix the source of the smell. Clear drains, wash bins, open windows and air the kitchen from old cooking smells. Conversely, good smells can make a property feel like an alluring home.
