Top 10 Tip's from Wentworth&Rose to Help Sell Your House!
2. Your front door is the centrepiece of your kerb appeal so repaint it in a tasteful colour. Update the outside lights and put potted plants on either side of the door.
3. The entrance hall creates a first impression… make sure it is the right impression. Paint it in a neutral colour, remove any bulky furniture, upgrade the lighting and if you feel you need colour add it with accessories and a rug.
4. The wrong lighting can make your home feel dark and drab so install brighter modern lights to make your home seem sunny, cheerful and up to date.
5. Paint colour is such a personal choice and potential buyers are likely to want to customise it themselves. If you have dark rich colours then repaint in neutral hues.
7. Clutter. NO, NO, NO! How do you expect to impress potential buyers with a cluttered house? If you have outgrown your home, start packing and if you don’t have anywhere to put it then use storage.
8. Pets – some love them, some hate them and some are allergic to them, so make sure that on the viewing they are out of they house to prevent one of three things happening:
– Pet lovers will pay more attention to your pet and less attention to your home.
– Pet haters will feel uncomfortable, completely on their guard and rush round your property leaving as soon as they can.
– If you have a buyer that is allergic to animals, a reaction will put them off your home. Remove all pet bowls, baskets and (most important) litter trays.
10. Clean – Buyers expect to see an immaculate home with no signs of dirt. Remove last night’s Indian take away from the worktops and do the washing up! No dirty underwear on the bedroom floor. Potential buyers need to imagine themselves living in “your” space, your perfectly clean home!
You’ll be surprised how big an impression these small updates can make. By the time you’re done, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner.
Follow these small steps to help maximise your property’s potential that will allow you to achieve a faster sale and the best possible market price for your home.
