Preparing your house for sale
Lynda from our Kings Heath office - Kerb appeal, first impressions count! Make sure
the front of your property is clean and tidy and if there is time, a fresh lick of paint.
Make your home warm and homely. Have the central heating on at a low comfortable
temperature - Luke from our Northfield office.
Gardens are a big selling feature, but the Winter months don't do them justice. Alison from our Northfield Office suggests keeping them as neat as possible and adding some Winter Pansies for colour. Also a Winter hanging basket at the front entrance as a
welcome for viewers.
De-clutter and create the perfect ambiance, for example, during the Winter months always have soft lighting, lamps and scented candles lit, says Trina from our Droitwich Office.
Emily from Northfield recommends dressing your property nicely. Set the scene for potential buyers, if you have a fire put it on.
Minimize the amount of photos or children's painting's you have on display, this can be
very distracting for the buyers. Viewers want to imagine the lovely life they could make
for themselves in their beautiful potential new home, so that means you will have to
depersonalise - Stuart from Barnt Green.
Claire from our Bromsgrove office advises to give your property a Spring clean. Get rid of any cobwebs, dust the skirting boards, clean the windows, vacuum and make sure all the
rubbish has been taken out.
