Preparing your home

Before potential buyers view your home it is essential that you look at it through a buyers’ eyes.

Here are a few tips on how to make your property more saleable…

  • Make the entrance attractive
  • Get rid of clutter
  • Clean the windows
  • Walls need to be neat and clear of marks, peeling wallpaper and plaster cracks
  • No leaking or dripping taps
  • Lighting needs special attention. Make sure that all light bulbs work. Remember to switch on feature lights when potential buyers come to view the property.
  • Cupboards and drawers must be neat.
  • Kitchens are selling points. Kitchens often sell houses. Go for a revamp, not necessarily a replacement. New handles on cupboard doors can work wonders. Work surfaces should be clean and clear of clutter.
  • Ditto bathrooms. Keep them clean and minimal. Fresh fluffy towels can do wonders.
  • Pets and children should be an asset
  • Smells in the home should always be pleasant!
