How can I present my property in the best possible light when I’m selling it?
First impressions count and making your property look its best could be the difference between selling your property and losing a potential buyer. It is important to:
- Think like a buyer - cast a critical eye over your property and identify areas that require improvement
- Reduce clutter and decorate neutrally - keep rooms clean and tidy, this will help a buyer to fully visualise the space
- Keep it light - clean the windows and open all the curtains to encourage natural light into your property
- Consider the exterior – buyers will often walk or drive past first, so fresh paintwork and well cared for outside spaces make a great first impression
