Our guide selling your home

When it comes to selling there are key steps you can take to make your property stand out. By investing just a small amount of time, you have the potential to increase your sales value, create buyer competition and decrease your home’s time on the market. We’ve curated our top tips below.

Before you list


TIP ONE

Declutter those cupboards, coat hooks, shelves and surfaces. Let your space sing and feel as open as possible


TiP TWO

Patch, paint and caulk any holes, scuffs and unfinished projects. Show that your home is ready to live in.


TIP THREE

Deep clean and dust. Whether you do it yourself or hire some help, don’t forget your windows, decking and patios.


TIP FOUR

Give your garden some TLC. Simply weeding, adding fresh soil to flower beds and a new plant or two will bring a dose of colour and life.

First impression is key, preparing your home for viewers is essential. Declutter – but don’t depersonalise, make sure your home is clean, fix anything broken and keep/create a lifestyle for one to buy into.

TIP FIVE

Lighting is key. Blinds and curtains should be open, with all lightbulbs working and switched on.


TIP SIX

Think about your home’s scent. Neutralise smells and add reed diffusers to create a fragrant welcome.


TIP SEVEN

Leave notes that highlight unseen features of your property. Maybe you have underfloor heating, a new major appliance, fibre broadband? Let your viewers know.


TIP EIGHT

Help your buyer to imagine themselves in the space. Remove large family photos that may be acting as a focal point in a room.
