Most buyers form their first impressions of a house or flat within seconds of walking through the door. Spend time tidying up the inside and outside of the property – plant flowers, trim bushes, weed, repaint and make it a house to be proud of. If you have a path make sure it is swept clean and has great kerb appeal.
Cleanliness and tidiness should never be underestimated and so clean each room top to bottom. In high impact rooms such as the bathroom and kitchen make sure surfaces are cleaned and focus on floors, too. A sparkling floor will instantly lift the room. A proper clean will also make your home smell fresh and appealing. Clutter doesn’t sell homes, it makes them seem smaller and disorganised. Take time to remove as much as possible without leaving the rooms bare.

From removing grubby sealant to replacing damaged areas of carpet, getting all problems fixed before putting the house on the market is a smart idea. Potential buyers will look for any area to try and get you to reduce the sale price, by eliminating any maintenance issues gives you the upper hand.
