  • Everything should be cleaned thoroughly.
  • Tidy up the place! Buyers get confused by clutter, and distracted from the positive elements about your space.
  • Have your windows professionally cleaned.
  • Dirty walls should be re-painted if possible.
  • Any signs of water damage, cracks or holes should be repaired. Cracked or broken windows or mirrors too!
  • Floor tiles and walls tiles should be re-grouted.
  • Will your home’s value increase if you renovate the kitchen and bathroom/s? This needs to be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Consult a specialist.
  • How light is your home? Would additional lighting enhance the space? Increase the wattage of existing lights, if dark.
  • Scented candles help reduce odors. Bad odors distract buyers.
  • Fresh flowers or plants always make a difference. Window boxes with plantings enhance a bad view.
  • Sanding and re-finishing wood floors or removing/replacing worn carpeting could be a minor expense compared to the selling price gains. Consult a specialist.
  • Replace/remove items of furniture to improve the value image of the space. Renting an expensive chair could adjust the buyer’s eyes to the possibility that the space too is very expensive-looking. Consult a specialist.
