Seller’s Tips

LOOK SMART –

Street appeal is important as this is the buyers first impression of your home. Tidy the garden and lawns, wipe/wash down the exterior of the house and windows and fix any fencing or gates at the entrance to your home.

 

SPRING CLEAN –

De-cluttering will make the whole house feel and look larger. Remove items from bench-tops to open up spaces. Having very limited items on available spaces will help when trying to make a small home appear larger. Floor and window coverings may also require a clean. Have a look around your home to see if yours could do with a spring clean.

 

LIGHT –

A home always feels open and airy when it’s full of light. Open the windows, doors and curtains/blinds to let the breeze and light into the home. Turning on the lights, even during the day can give the home a light and airy feel.

 

BATHROOMS – 

Create the feel of a relaxing, luxurious bath. Stack a few pretty washcloths tied with ribbon, add some scented candles and faux plants, and buy bathmats and towels in coordinating tones such as light green, blue and white

 

PETS/ANIMALS –

We all love our pets but the buyer may not. Place pets on leads or in enclosures during inspections. If pets are indoors ensure that any odours are minimised by opening doors and windows. In the case of horses and livestock, ensure they are securely fenced and any shelters or tack rooms are neat and tidy.
