We have put together some simple tips which will help generate more viewings and allow viewers to visualize themselves living in your home.
- First impressions last so start at the beginning; a clean and tidy driveway / front garden is a great start. Wash and sweep your drive, trim hedging, tidy any loose leaves / earth etc. Also, a washed / freshly painted front door can give your home a real lift and set an inviting welcome.
- Fresh paint can make a huge difference. Take a good look at each room to determine if any could benefit from a fresh lick of paint. A neutral light colour allows potential buyers to better visualise the space.
- Next, declutter and depersonalise your space. Remove any clutter, unnecessary furniture to help maximize your living space. You want to allow the potential purchaser to imagine themselves in your home.
- For viewings, we always recommend having your home warm and cosy. Light some candles and place some diffusers around your home to help set the scene.
