The better your property is presented to buyers, the better price it will attract. Good preparation together with your marketing strategy will ensure that you attract the "best buyers" to your property and will result in achieving the best possible price.
In relation to this we know that first impressions last. Here are some useful hints to ensure your property is presented in the best possible way:
Wash and clear dishes from kitchen
Ensure beds are made
Remove any clutter or children’s toys from floors
Clean interior including walls and doors
Repair any cracks in ceilings and walls
Draw back curtains for more light
Light up any dark areas
Mow your lawns
Tidy your gardens
Remove rubbish and where possible hide rubbish bins
Clean up exterior spaces including sheds and storage areas
Repair exterior paintwork
Remove clothes from your clothes line
Remove pets on the day of inspections
Creating an Atmosphere for Buyers
Potential buyers will be asking, "Can I imagine living here?". Inside, aim for a sense of light, space and warmth. This might mean storing some of your furniture in a paid facility or with a friend or relative. An uncluttered look is certainly more appealing because it emphasises the space the potential buyer has to work with.
Inexpensive ideas such as throw rugs or loose covers can help dress up tired furniture, or you might consider hiring furniture for the period your home will be open.
Finish any projects that are not completed, but think twice before starting an expensive new project. It is best to make the most of what you have because you never know whether major alterations will be to your buyers' tastes.
If the property you are selling is unfurnished, it is well known that decorating it with hire furniture can assist in engaging buyers.
