Displaying your property to its best potential will ensure you get the right price from prospective buyers or tenants. Achieving a great first impression at the entrance of the property, to captivating the vendor inside your property, will all help to maximise your viewing results.
Use our checklist to help you maximise your properties potential:
Front Entrance - clean or invest in a new mat at the front door to welcome vendors into your home. Refresh plant pots and hanging baskets with colourful plants to give a pop of colour. Make sure bins are organised away from the front door.
Light and Bright - help your property to look as spacious and airy by making rooms as light and bright as possible. Open and dress curtains and blinds, make sure all light bulbs are working and give the right light for the room.
Declutter - less is more so take the time to declutter key rooms in your property so vendors don't have to visualise the room without clutter. By decluttering now, will mean you move less with you when you sell or rent your property.
Tidy - present your rooms well by ensuring they are tidy; pillows are puffed, beds are made, towels are hung well and clothes are put away.
Decorating - repainting hallwalls and key rooms such as lounges and kitchens can make a big difference. A professional decorator will achieve a desirable result, but if you prefer to paint yourself, always aim for a good finish by painting ceilings, skirting boards and architrave to make the wall colour standout.
Choose colours that appeal to the majority of tastes. Light greys such as Farrow and Ball's Cornforth White present walls well and ensure they retain a light and fresh finish. The same applies to carpets, if you have the funds to invest in a new carpet in the entrance hall and stairs you will maximise appeal. Choose neutral light colours such as beige or grey to appeal to all.
