Tips for selling your home.

A well-presented home usually sells faster, and achieves a higher price. Start by de-cluttering – put excess belongings and furniture into storage and you’ll make your home look bigger and the purchasers can them imagine themselves living there. Tidy up the garden, mow the lawns and make sure the front of your home makes the right first impression. If a purchaser drives past this could be the difference of them coming in. A well-presented property with neat kerb appeal will make all the difference.

If a room is dark, look for ways to create more light, paint the walls a lighter colour or take away heavy curtains. Quality taps and door handles can make an immediate impact for little investment, and a fresh coat of paint in a neutral light colour gives the impression your home has been well maintained.

You only get one chance to make a great first impression. Investing a little time and money in making your property look its best usually pays off with a higher sale price – however this is your decision. If your house is empty, it’s a good idea to hire some quality furniture as staged properties have proven to sell faster and achieve a higher price. You’re selling a lifestyle, not just a home.
