De-clutter – don’t personalise

De-cluttering and having a pristine home from top to bottom is vital to make your home stand out from the rest. Your home must be cleaner and less cluttered than it’s ever been. You need to banish not just the day-to-day build-up (the mail, the shoes, last season’s clothes, the dog hair) but also several year’s accumulation.

Boost roadside appeal

Many people think of viewing your home will do a quick drive-by first, often deciding on the spot if it is even worth a look inside. Make sure your home will tempt potential buyers. Create a good first impression.

A fresh lick of paint

Giving your walls a fresh lick of neutral paint will make your home seem lighter and brighter. It will enable the viewer to more easily imagine how they would adapt the rooms to their needs and will be easier for the buyers to move in and use the rooms immediately than if the walls were still bright purple or lime green

Fix and clean

Make any minor repairs necessary – holes in walls, broken doorknobs. Many buyers want to move in without making changes so allow for this. Clean everything until it sparkles. Get rid of limescale, clean and repair tile grout, get rid of odours put out fresh towels. This will make the place more appealing and allow viewers to imagine living there.
Don’t forget the outside. Tidy up the garden by cutting bushes back, clearing the patio, and cutting the grass. While this doesn’t add value to your home it makes it more likely to sell as people can visualise themselves using the garden.

Light and airy

Wall mirrors make a room look much bigger and lighter. Consider putting some up, especially in smaller rooms or hallways. Clean windows inside and out and replace any broken light bulbs. Making the place feel light and airy makes rooms feel bigger and the property more attractive.

Light a fire

If it’s a cold evening, or even a chilly daylight your fire. This will make your home feel warm and inviting. If you don’t have a fire, then ensure the fireplace is clean.

Make it look pretty

Make sure the windows are properly dressed with blinds or curtains as naked windows make a place feel impersonal. Buy some cheap ones if necessary. Plants and flowers bring colour life and light to a room and smell delicious. So does that fruit bowl on your kitchen worktop.

Get the right smells

Bad smells are the single biggest turn-off for prospective buyers. Don’t just cover them up. Fix the source of the smell. Wash bins, open windows, air the rooms and wah pet being. Conversely, good smells can make an alluring home. Brew some fresh coffee or a good tip is to put some vanilla essence on a baking tray in the oven just before your viewers arrive this gives the homely smell of fresh baking.
