Get The Most From Your Property When Selling

10th May 2017

From a small crack in a bathroom tile to a broken windowpane, it is important to make every single aspect of your house as clean, presentable and unblemished as possible when you are looking to sell!

Let’s explore some of the things that you can do to get the most from your property:

Fix up, Look Sharp

No one likes a house that has obvious temporary repairs to cover up issues with the property. Staying on top of your house and any issues which may arise, regardless of how small or large they may be, can help you keep your house safe and in appropriate condition for a potential buyer.

Not only does it reduce the property’s snag list, but having the security of knowing your house is consistently spick and span can help to give you the edge when looking to sell.  A fresh coat of paint can also work wonders and light, neutral colours can help make rooms look bigger. 

Small Steps Climb Big Mountains

Every single aspect of your house contributes to its value.

The front of the property will create the first impression, so a mowed lawn, trimmed hedges, clean windows and door will all make a positive statement before the potential buyer has entered your home.

If you have pets, chances are you are used to their smells but your potential buyer may not so make sure litter trays are emptied, food bowls are cleaned and there are no lingering scents hanging in the air.


Arguably one of the most important factors in successfully selling your property is to remove all unnecessary “stuff” and make each room look as big and inviting as possible.

Trinkets, vases, lots of photos frames… whilst they may have sentimental value to you, consider how they may come across to a prospective buyer who is trying to visualise themselves making your home their home.

Think about it, a lack of clutter combined with a number of small repairs can all add up and to give your property the clean, refreshed and appealing vibrancy that people seek when viewing a property!
