House number:

This seems like a minor detail, but it is essential that your house number is clearly visible. First impressions do really count and are so important to the successful sale of your property. A home looking neat and tidy, on both the outside and the inside, encourages and welcomes closer inspection.

De-Clutter your home:

Purchasers need to be able to visualise how they would live in your property. To do this there needs to be minimal distraction. Too much furniture and objects will make rooms feel smaller than they really are.

Attend to those repairs you have been ignoring:

  • Repair holes in walls and fix the doors that don’t close. Replace light globes that have blown.
  • Paint walls and doors to freshen up only if necessary.
  • A mistake by sellers is assuming that the prospective purchaser can look past dirt and untidiness. This can be really off putting and could cost you a sale.
  • Wash windows inside and out.
  • Hire a pressure cleaner to remove any grease or stains from paths and garage floors.
  • Remove cobwebs inside and outside.
  • Steam clean carpet and rugs to remove unsightly stains and discard or replace any worn rugs and carpet.
  • Dust especially overhead fan blades and light fittings.
  • Remove or replace dirty or worn rugs.
  • Clean and air any musty or pet smelling areas.
  • Mow the lawn trim the edges, and weed the garden.
  • Paint faded or peeling window trim.

Set the scene for your Open For Inspection:

  • Open blinds and curtains to allow the most natural light in as possible.
  • Open windows prior to air your home.
  • Check flower arrangements
  • Turn on lights if necessary.
  • Display best towels in bathroom.
  • Clean and straighten rugs, and bed linen.
  • Empty all the rubbish bins and clear the letter box of junk mail.
  • Make sure the home is warm in winter, and cool in summer.
  • Make sure lawns are mowed and garden edges trimmed.
  • It is recommended the Vendors be away from the property, making it more comfortable for the purchasers to look freely throughout .
