Useful Selling Tips
Make your home shine and look it’s very best!
Good first impressions can make all the difference between a quick sale and a prolonged one and certainly add extra dollars to the final selling price.
The following tips are simple and effective in creating the right image – and we all know that image is everything!
- Declutter and remove any surplus furniture, nick knacks and personal photos – this helps potential purchasers imagine themselves living in your home and will make rooms feel larger and improve the flow from room to room
- Clean windows inside and out
- Clean and clear kitchen bench tops of clutter and surplus appliances
- Clean bathrooms meticulously
- Have carpets and soft furnishings professionally cleaned
- A fresh coat of paint will do wonders for the overall appeal of the home
Making a good first impression on the outside can be the deciding factor on whether a potential purchaser walks in the door or not.
If a home does not present well on the outside, potential purchasers may be put off pursuing any further despite all your efforts to the contrary on the inside.
- Make the entrance welcoming, de-clutter and add natural colour in the way of a few pot plants
- A fresh coat of paint on the front door always makes for a good first impression
- Polish any fittings on the door
- Invest in a new door mat
- Remove any leaves and cobwebs from the entrance
- Trim and tidy gardens and mow lawns
- Make sure any outdoor lighting is in good working order
These are just a few helpful tips and we can also recommend professional stylists who specialise in full make overs and furnishing of the entire property.
