Selling Tips


PRESENTATION IS EVERYTHING

Go to the front of your house and look at it as if it is the first time you have seen it. Remove unsightly shrubs and weeds, paint fences and touch up paint at the front of the house. Declutter the house, rearrange furniture in a way that provides a clear path from room to room.

KITCHENS SELL HOUSES

Make sure you leave the kitchen clean and tidy, free from dirty dishes. Clean the stove and oven. Wipe the bench tops till they are sparkling clean.

LET THE SUN SHINE IN

Be sure to take advantage of as much natural light as possible. Open curtains for an inspection. Remember light from a window overlooking the yard gives the room a perception of more space and colour. Ensure all your lightbulbs are working in order to create as much light as possible.

KEEP THE PETS AWAY

Consider keeping pets outdoors or taking them for a walk when an inspection is due. Not everyone likes animals and those that do are normally distracted and the pets will prevent buyers from comfortably exploring your home.

CLEAN OUT CUPBOARDS

Buyers open cupboard doors. Yes, not only under the kitchen sink and pantry, but your wardrobes as well. Consider packing away out of season clothes, it will make your wardrobes space seem bigger.

ROOMS SHOULD BE UNCLUTTERED

Consider moving excess furniture into storage whilst your property is on the market – it will make your home appear bigger.

LITTLE TOUCH UPS

Cosmetic touch ups can cost very little but can make your home more appealing.

BATHROOMS

People love to see bathrooms sparkling clean, make sure you’ve cleaned the whole bathroom and that the bench tops are uncluttered.
