Tips For Vendors
How you present your home for sale can have a huge impact on your success in selling it. It is important not to spend too much money on home improvements unless there is major work needed.
Advisory improvements to make are:
Thoroughly clean your house from top to bottom, including the skirting boards, the curtains and windows.
- De-clutter, this is one of those tasks that is always put off - now is the time to do it,
there is no point in transporting clutter you don´t want (or ever use) to your new home.
Make sure that nothing can fall out of cupboards if they are opened.
Do check over your house to see if there is anything that needs fixing like a dripping tap for example.
Make sure your house smells nice - before a viewing do NOT feed your pet!
The smell is very off-putting for potential buyers. Try to air your property as much as possible
or use air fresheners or the old trick of baking bread or coffee. Make note - incense sticks are
not everyone´s cup of tea!
The kitchen is one of the main rooms that sell houses to potential buyers. Make sure it is spotless and it may be wise to give cupboards a new lick of paint to keep them looking fresh. It sounds obvious, but remember not to cook fragrant food whilst viewings are taking place!
Make sure the garden is neat and tidy as this is also a big selling point to buyers.
