Are you thinking of selling your home or getting it ready to put on the market? It’s important to make sure your property looks its best from the moment it is launched onto the market. Here are out top tips for presenting your property:
Street appeal – Make sure the front of your property looks appealing and inviting with a weed-free garden and some attractive potted plants. It’s amazing how a few inexpensive potted plants with color can brighten up your home from the street.
Clean and bright – Ensure that windows are clean inside and out – it’s surprising how much difference it makes to the light.
Cut the Clutter – You want the prospective buyer to be able to imagine their belongings in the property, so de-clutter to keep things tidy. Less clutter will also help make rooms appear larger.
Set the Scene – You may want to rent furniture to create the look you desire. This is a great way to transform your home and give it extra appeal. This is an added cost but could assist you in the selling of your home.
Fix it – From leaking taps to a broken bulb, make sure the minor repairs are taken care of. A splash of paint will freshen scuffs and scrapes in the woodwork. Basic maintenance work will help to ensure buyers don’t find any faults.
Freshen up – There’s nothing like walking into a house and smelling smoke or pet odors. Open the windows, brew some fresh coffee, bake some home made bread and bright the place up with flowers.
Lighten up – Mirrors and Lights can make the space feel bigger as well as leaving internal doors open too.
Pets – Always clean and tidy up after your pets and take them out of the property during showing times, if possible.
Warmth – 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 really impress prospective buyers.
These tips along with good professional photographs will make the world of difference in the presentation of your home and potentially a quick sale.
