TOP 10 SELLING TIPS FOR SELLING YOUR HOME:

•  Remember your front door and/or garden are what potential buyers see first! Try to make it as appealing and attractive as you can, even if it’s just tidy.

•  De-clutter! – have as little as possible on display, keep ornaments and accessories minimal so buyers can imagine their belongings there.

•  Neutralise! – try to keep paintwork and décor as neutral as possible, bright purple and sunshine yellow isn’t for everyone! Many people can’t visualise a blank canvas if there are too many colours to look past.

•  Make use of your lighting and mirrors to keep the house looking bright and airy.

•  Have a spring clean! – just tidying, de-cluttering and cleaning through can really freshen everything up.

•  Consider odours!! – not a great idea to have stale cooking smells or last nights takeaway dishes on display for example. Use fresh air and candles!

•  Pets – not everyone is a pet lover, may be an idea to arrange for pets to be out of the way as they can put people off or even distract from the viewing.

•  Prepare for viewings – as few people in the house as possible so it doesn’t feel over-crowded

•  Consider what offers you are prepared to accept

•  And finally….when you sell, keep the deal together! Keep in contact with your buyer, communicate with your solicitor to keep updates available.
