Last month I met a lovely couple and their young child. They had decided to move. Like many other families of their age, they needed more space. However they had made the fatal mistake of house hunting first which had resulted in them finding a home they loved. They needed a quick sale. However they also needed a top price in order to be able to afford their dream property.
Does this situation sound familiar? If so this weeks top tips are just for you. This is what we did. It worked. Their home is sold……
Begin by making your rooms look more spacious. Remove any excess furniture and minimise wherever you can. In your living areas this may mean tidying shelves, hiding things away in cupboards. In kitchens it may mean clearing work surfaces. In bedrooms neaten your bedsides and hide away shoes and clothes in cupboards. De-cluttering really does work.
Clean and touch up
Look objectively at your home. Now is the time to really give it a thorough clean. Make it sparkle and shine. Touch up any paint work. If you want a great price your decor needs to be fresh and tidy. If you find it difficult cutting in, its worth calling a professional in or asking a family member for help!
Accessories are an estate agents best friend. It works for the show houses so it will work for you. Think like a hotel and dress your bed. Invest in statement light fittings for your main living areas. Plump up cushions in your lounge. Make sure your home co-ordinates and flows. It all helps to impress those buyers
Make sure your property photos are worth showing off. Great photos attract buyers to come look. Poor photos can put them off. Make sure they are bright and show off the room. They also need to be honest too, so on viewing days it’s really important your home looks like the photos taken. Keep them handy for a quick reference point.
