Try and find a balance between homely but minimalistic. Furniture gives a property that homely feel, but bulky furniture can make rooms feel small. De-clutter excess stuff that has accumulated to make the property feel open and spacious.
2. A Fresh Lick of Paint
Create a good first impression of your home – give the front door a new coat of paint. Giving your walls a fresh lick of neutral paint will make your home seem lighter and bigger.
3. Fragrant Homes
Again, a good smell and make a property feel like home (eg freshly baked bread, freshly brewed coffee etc). Bad smells are the single biggest turn off for prospective buyers. If the property has a lingering odour (pets, smoke, drains etc), we highly recommend fixing the problem and not just covering it up.
No buyer wants to see left over food and dirty pots and pans in the kitchen so please remove last night’s dinner from the worktops and do the washing up! Put your washing away and don't leave dirty underwear on the bedroom floor.
Pets – some love them, some hate them and some are allergic to them, so make sure that on the viewing they are out of the house. Please try and remove cat litter trays or toys that may have a lingering smell.
