Once you’ve made the decision to Sell your Property, it’s important to optimise all aspects of the Property to ensure the best results. Investing a small budget can often bring a massive return. Start by standing at the entrance and viewing the property as a potential buyer, has it got “kerb appeal”? A tidy garden, some flower pots or hanging baskets can create the right impression and 1st impressions are important as we all know. Cleaning gutters, power washing and removing garden debris should all be on your list. Get rid of cobwebs and have the windows cleaned and your ready to move indoors.
The interior should be clean and fresh, perhaps think about painting the walls and ceilings as not alone do you get better light reflection on newly painted surfaces but the subtle smell of fresh paint is so pleasing.
Presses should be bare or neat and surfaces clear. Light fittings dusted with working bulbs in all fittings. Use plug ins or diffusers to enhance the ambience. Lemon verbena is uplifting and let’s face it you want your potential buyers feeling positive while the view your property.
Fresh flowers or the smell of freshly baked bread is also very appealing. Not a baker? Try Louise’s recipe for Chorizo Bread or at very least buy an Artisan leaf and warm through just before the arrival of the clients. Its all about giving the Potential buyer a sense of home. If they think “ I can see myself living here” then an offer is imminent.
