  • Presentation is the Key: You don’t have to spend a great deal of time or money to make sure your home looks its best. A fresh coat of paint, well-tended gardens, minor repairs, professional cleaning and de-cluttering will make a big difference to buyers’ first impressions. There are a number of tips to follow to ensure you achieve the maximum possible sale price for your property.
  • Professional Styling: This can be particularly beneficial for vacant properties to make them appear more homely and functional. Detail all of the inclusions or exclusions so that buyers know exactly what is included/excluded in the sale i.e. light-fittings, window coverings etc.
  • Organise a Building and Pest Inspection: This allows you to find out any problems that might potentially turn off buyers and allows you time to fix them where necessary. A clear property report is a big plus when selling.
  • Timing of Sale: Depending on the location, seasonal changes and accommodation style of your property, it may be more beneficial to sell at a certain time of year. Ask your agent for advice.
