Sales Tips

As first impressions are important, you should take note of the following guidelines to enhance the appearance and sale of your property:-
  • Create an inviting atmosphere by arranging furniture
  • Create a bright atmosphere by letting plenty of light into your home
  • Use flowers, plants and paintings to brighten up the home
  • Keep your home neat & tidy during the inspections
  • Ensure minor repairs are completed such as sticking doors, windows, loose door knobs, faulty plumbing, peeling paint etc
  • Gardens, lawns, paths and porches should be clear of rubbish or debris
  • Garden equipment tools, toys & sporting equipment should be stored away
  • Keep pets out of the house during open for inspections
  •  A fresh coat of paint can transform even the dullest of rooms.  Freshly painted walls look clean, inviting and well maintained.  Use a neutral white or beige colour on your walls to help the prospective buyer to see what they might wish to do with the room
  • The kitchen should be stylish and clean - if it looks out of date, think of ways to refresh the look
  • Consider updating old bathroom fittings to give a modern impression
  • Consider recarpeting any rooms with worn, old or stained carpets, alternatively have them steam cleaned
  • Try to keep your personal items to a minimum to allow the prospective buyer the opportunity to see their own things in the house
  • If you have a pool, ensure that it is clean and that the surround is in good condition
