Five Must Do's When Getting Ready To Sell

Any real estate agent will tell you that creating a good first impression is extremely important when you are putting your property on the market. Whatever work you put in to refresh and style your home will help your home appeal to buyers and reward you with an improved result on the big day. Here are a few fundamental must do's when getting ready to sell.

Create space by removing any unnecessary items from your home and store it away. Get rid of clutter and take a minimalist approach to really showcase a few feature pieces in each room and draw attention to bones of the house.

Touching up the paintwork or even repainting the entire home depending on timelines and budget is always a good idea when selling. Keep your colour palette reserved and neutral and instead incorporate eye-catching textures into the mix to enhance design. A freshly painted home, looks new and bright, creating more than just a positive impression on buyers.

Simple things like weeding the garden and driveway, sprucing up the backyard and pool area, mowing the lawn, pruning the garden beds, adding a few new plants and creating curb appeal can add value to your home.

Get professional cleaners in to clean the walls, ceilings, windows, floors, bathrooms and even the inside of the kitchen cabinets, shed or storage shelves in the garage.

Staging your home creates a welcoming impression and looks great in the advertising brochures and online websites. It also helps the buyer imagine how they would live in the house, visualise redecorating the space with their own furniture and connect emotionally with the property.

A fresh, low maintenance, loved yet lived-in house always appeals to buyers. Following these simple yet fundamental guidelines, will help set a welcoming mood and go a long way in ensuring best possible results.

Till next time...good luck at the open house!
