Presenting Your Home For Sale is Key
When it comes to preparing your home or property for sale, it is important to make it as appealing as possible to potential buyers and here is a simple guide to follow;
First Impressions Count
Make sure your property has great kerb appeal by mowing the lawn regularly and keeping borders clean and tidy. Are there any external jobs that you always intended to get done to make the house more presentable like repair fencing, stain or paint windows, facia or rendering?
Internally is your decoration a neutral colour? What sort of condition are your carpets? Are there any unfinished DIY jobs or areas that need a lick of paint – and remember if you’re not handy yourself call in an expert as nothing puts buyers off more than badly done DIY and ensure you get the best possible price for your home by minimising buyers worries. We can happily provide a competitive quote for all maintenance with our recommended local contractors.
Ensure the property is clutter free, clear surfaces including floors and work surfaces. Remember if you have already made the decision to move it’s the perfect time to sort through all your personal belongings and box up or clear out ready for your own move.
Open curtains, blinds and adjoining doors prior to a viewing to best show off your house.
Be a flexible as possible and keep us informed about specific times to avoid.
