When you sell a property, whether you are selling your home to move or cashing in your investment property, you want to achieve the highest possible selling price.
Here are some tried & tested tips to help you towards this goal.
✓Have a home stylist come through your home and advise you on furniture placement, decorations, art and ornaments.
✓Make sure the property is spick and span before any potential buyers come through the front door.
✓Remove any clutter, as this will give the impression of good storage space, and make the property feel larger.
✓Clean all surfaces, windows, mirrors, inside cupboards, and remove all cobwebs.
✓Weed the garden, trim the lawn and sweep the pathways.
✓Put some pots of colourful flowers at the property entrance.
✓Repair any obvious problems or imperfections.
On Inspection Day
✓Have a bunch of nice smelling flowers or burn some essential oils.
✓If you fancy cooking, bake some bread in the oven.
✓It will give the property a homely warm feeling, and buyers will start imagining themselves in the house.
✓Maximise the light inside by cleaning windows, opening (or removing) blinds and curtains, turn on lights and lamps.
✓If it’s hot outside, run the air-conditioning.
✓If it’s cold outside, run the heating.
✓Have fresh towels and tea towels in the bathrooms and kitchen.
✓Take yourself, your family and pets somewhere else for the duration of the inspection.
