How do I increase the value of my property?
- If it needs it, give the front door a coat of paint.
- Fill in and redecorate any cracks to walls and ceilings.
- Put a lock on any rear gate.
- Spring-clean the property throughout.
- Weed and clean up the garden.
- Consider the layout of your rooms to maximise a feeling of space – some rooms can look much smaller when there is a lot of furniture or clutter.
- If you are marketing a small room as a ‘bedroom’ it may be useful to dress it as such to demonstrate that it can indeed fit a bed.
- Before you do any significant redecoration, discuss it with your estate agent. They may be of the opinion that it’s not necessary, or advise you to stick to neutral colours.
- Make sure the shower works and is free from mould – and perhaps consider upgrading it.
How do I prepare for property viewings?
- Make the place as tidy as possible and open the windows to let in fresh air.
- Have a place where you can quickly hide clutter and rubbish if the viewing is at short notice.
- Vacuum clean and dust the main rooms.
- Clean the bathroom sinks, toilets and baths.
- Put some flowers in the main room.
- Draw the curtains fully back to get maximum daylight in the rooms.
- On dull days, turn all the lights on and light any fire in the main room.
- Turn the television and radio off (light music is fine).
- Close all windows that are affected by background noise (traffic, trains etc).
- Try not to let pets and children interrupt the viewing; keep them occupied.
