Hints & tips for getting your property ready for sale

Disassociate yourself from your property
  • Try and view your property through a buyer’s eyes. Think of it not as ‘your home’ but as a product that is for sale and try and make your house look as neutral as possible.
  • Try and make the mental detachment early that your house when it has sold will be someone else’s property and look towards the future.
  • Choose an agent that will offer accompanied viewings as part of the service. The agent will not have the emotional attachment but the passion for making a sake and helping your move be a stress-free as possible.
De-clutter as much as possible
  • If you view this process as giving yourself a ‘head-start’ when it comes to packing!
  • Take on a room at a time and think back to making each part of the house seem neutral to potential buyers.
  • Pack up any knickknacks or collectables, start removing books from full bookcases and make tidy as much off the kitchen worktops as is possible. You’ll be surprised at how much space appliances take up.
Make any minor repairs
  • Replace any cracked wall or floor tiles.
  • Patch any holes in wall or flooring.
  • Re-seal baths, showers and sinks.
  • Consider painting any bright walls so they are a neutral colour
  • Replace blown lightbulbs.
  • Patch any rotten window frames. *

*Speak to your agent if you aren’t sure whether the money is worth spending. Don’t make any major changes if your agent isn’t confident it will be reflected in your overall price.
