Read on for our top tips make the most of your property and sell/let it for the best price!
The front of your property: From getting out of your car to walking down the path, try to visualise how your property will appear in the mind of others.
Entrance hall: This is the first and last space potential buyers and tenants will see, try to keep it light, clean and clutter free.
Lighting: The correct lighting can have a huge impact on the feel of your home. To help rooms appear more spacious try to strike a balance between natural and artificial lighting.
Colour: The colour of your home is personal to you, so when preparing it for sale or let, try using a neutral palette so that potential buyers or tenants are not put off by colours which are not to their tastes.
Kitchen and Bathroom: It is important to maximise the potential of these spaces. Make sure they are clean, light and airy with no overpowering odours.
Clutter: Before any viewings take place make sure your property is clean and tidy, clutter lying around can do your property a disservice making it seem smaller and cramped.
Pets: We know you love your pets, but others may not. Try to keep them out of the way during viewings so as not to put potential buyers or tenants off.
Back garden and outside space: Any outside space should be treated with the same attention as a room inside and can add real value to your property.
