How to increase your Sales Potential

News at Harry Charles | 26/05/2022

First impressions count, and when it comes to selling or renting your property, making a statement at the entrance goes a long way to maximising the value of your property.

Simulate your prospective buyers senses with impressive colour, welcoming smells or visual cues.

At Harry Charles Estate Agents our team will offer you advice on how to maximise your sales or letting potential with ideas on how to make the most of your property.

Here are our a few of our top tips:

  • Bring colour to the entrance - plant annuals in summer pots to give a blast of colour from June to September such as Pelargoniums (Geraniums), Fuchsias, Begonias, Nemesia and Busy Lizzies.
  • Make sure the entrance is clean and tidy, give the area a good sweep to remove fallen leaves and replace or clean the entrance mat 
  • Declutter key rooms - kitchens, bathrooms and lounges are the statement rooms.  Box up trinkets on shelves and fireplaces and leave a few select items that will help show off the room and make it feel fresh, clean and spacious.
  • Clean your bathroom and put the loo seat down.  If you have lime scale build up in the shower or on taps, make them shine like new and buy some Viakal Bathroom Limescale Remover Anti-Bacterial Spray - which once left on the build up for 10 mins will scrub off easily and leave it shining.
  • Put a fresh scented aroma reed, we love molton brown orange and bergamot diffuser, place in the entrance hall and bathroom to give a fresh scent. 
  • Leave beds made and puff up the pillows to help bedrooms feel spacious and inviting.
A few small steps will make an enormous difference to release the value of your property and get interest quickly.
