Presenting Your Home

When you have decided to sell your property, always remember that ‘first impressions last’. Most buyers will drive by the property before deciding to contact the agent or attend an open for inspection. It is important that the interior and exterior of your home looks neat and tidy. It is quite common for buyers to drive by a few properties on the same day and the ones that look least appealing will be placed at the bottom of the list.

It is advisable to declutter your home as much as possible. This will give buyers a better idea of how they can fit their existing furniture into your home and will also help to make the spaces look bigger. You may also want to consider hiring some pieces of furniture to make your home more appealing. Our team can recommend reputable companies that will take care of all the styling and help make your home look at it’s best. Fix all minor repair items such as leaking taps, blown light globes, squeaking doors and damaged paintwork as this will show that your home is well maintained and will help to achieve an optimum result.

During open for inspections, it is advisable to have some fresh flowers in the entrance and living areas and the smell of freshly brewed coffee makes your home feel more homely. We love pets, but not everyone does, so if you have dogs or cats, we highly recommend that they are not inside during inspection times, and it is also a good idea to remove any pet bowls or beds.
