We wrote about five tips to prepare your home for viewing in the past and today we have 6 more tips for presenting your property.
To help buyers focus on the property we are selling for you, replace personal photos, trophies and artifacts with generic decor.
People collect an amazing quantity of belongings.
Ask yourself the question “Will I bring this with me when I move?”
Is there anything which might put off buyers? Can it be easily fixed?
Consider patching holes in the walls, replacing leaky taps and fixing doors that squeak or stick. Make sure all light bulbs are working. Eliminate mould. Remove weeds from gutters. Tidy the gardens.
Especially bathrooms and kitchens. Clean away cobwebs, re-grout baths, showers & sinks, polish chrome & mirrors, clean out refrigerator, dust furniture, ceilings, light fittings, replace worn rugs, hang up fresh towels and clean & air out any musty smelling areas.
Get windows cleaned before the photos are taken.
Go outside and look at your house from the street. Does it make a good first impression?
Look at your front door carefully. Imagine waiting here. Then open it. Stand here and ask. Do you want to go inside?
Does the house welcome you? Linger in the doorway of every single room and imagine how your house will look to a buyer. Examine carefully how furniture is arranged and move pieces around until it makes sense. Use mirrors and lamps to introduce light into darker corners.
