Further Information

When selling your home it is essential to have it looking the best it can be. While some things cannot be changed things like location, size or views, minor cosmetic updates can affect buyer interest and the end result. In this blog, we outline eight things to consider when preparing your home for sale.

Declutter

Less is more. Clutter can make a property look smaller, affect its flow, and subconsciously deter a potential buyer. Remove loose items from counters, windowsills, tables. Tidy behind closed doors – a curious buyer will open closets, drawers and cupboards. Clear gardens, pathways and exterior entrances for curb appeal.

Depersonalise

Buyers like to visualise themselves living in a space, so the goal is to create a blank canvas. To do this, remove any distractions like family photos, bold artwork, eclectic furniture, and personal items.

Fix

The small things matter. Think move-in ready. Touch up scuff marks, tighten loose handles, replace broken fixtures, mow the lawns, and weed the gardens. Buyers are looking to fall in love, not add repairs to their to-do list.

Repaint

You might love your bold accent wall, but it’s likely it won’t be to everyone’s taste. A fresh coat of neutral paint can go a long way to help buyers see the potential of your property. Light colours are preferable, as they create a blank canvas.

Style

Furnishings can make a huge difference. Plants create a welcoming environment. Flowers or a fruit bowl can lift a room. Fresh decor can modernise a property. Consider a professional home stager if you need a little extra help or want to give your house an extra lift. Stagers know the market and what sells.

Deodorise

You may be oblivious to the way your property smells. Invite a friend or third party to assess any scents. Lingering pet, food and smoking odors can be dealbreakers for buyers. Let in some light and air. If smells are pervasive, consider deep cleaning or masking techniques, but don’t go overboard with distinct artificial scents.

Clean

This is a no-brainer. The cleaner, the better. And remember to maintain cleanliness from the day you list the property to the day you sell. You never know when a buyer may schedule a last-minute viewing. Pay special attention to skirting boards, walls and doors – the property will look cared for if they are in good condition.

Enlist a great agent

As you’ve just read, it pays to prepare. The best form of preparation is a qualified real estate agent. An experienced and knowledgeable agent will guide you through all the above steps, as well as advise you on the market and stand in for you during the selling process – including for the intimidating parts like negotiation and settlement.
