Preparing your property for sale

There are three key areas to focus on when preparing your home for sale to help you get the best price:

1. Make simple repairs  

One of the biggest turn-offs for buyers is wear and tear such as chipped tiles, cracked windows, scuffed paintwork, stained carpets, and other obvious signs of damage. These unsightly areas instantly alert buyers there is work required, which can diminish their initial enthusiasm for your property and lower the price they are prepared to pay. Discuss with your agent which areas you should overhaul before holding open homes. You want to ensure you are increasing appeal while not overcapitalising.

2. Clean and declutter

Study other houses currently on the market and you will see they have been decluttered, cleaned thoroughly, and may even have been styled to look modern and pristine. Removing lots of clutter makes the prospective buyer able to see the room properly while more importantly, making the room appear larger. Cleaning the house, even hidden areas such as under the sink, makes the house look well-cared for. This gives the buyer a subliminal impression that the house has been well-maintained and there should be no hidden problems.

3. Style your home

Styling is another instant facelift that can give your property a fresh look which appeals to buyers. You can hire a stylist to take care of this for you, or hire furniture and accessories and do it yourself.
