How to Prepare your Home for Sale

Getting your home prepared for sale can be an overwhelming task that for many find it hard to know where to start.

Here, we have a few simple steps to guide you through the process!

  • Less is more

Declutter and then declutter again! The people viewing your home want to see what they could be moving into. This means having a house that is clean and tidy to ensure buyers are given the best view of your property possible.

  • Tidy your garden

This means mowing your grass, weeding, and washing down any outdoor surfaces. A garden which is well maintained adds value to your home as it is another space buyers can see themselves making use of.

  • Façade appeal

Before anyone steps foot into your home, the outside leading in is the first thing buyers will notice. Ensuring the façade is well maintained will provide a good first impression – the key to enticing buyers inside.

  • Freshen up your space

Consider a quick coat of paint over walls or steam cleaning of carpet. This can give your property a whole new look. Note that if you do paint your walls – neutral is always best to appeal to the widest market of buyers.

  • Property Staging

If you are feeling like the task of presenting your home for sale is to much, one simple solution is to hire a property stylist. They can either work with you to repurpose your space with your furniture or fully furnish your home for a fee.
