 Preparing Your Home For Sale

First impressions are lasting so the presentation of your property is critical in creating strong initial interest from potential purchasers. A good guide to styling your home is to remove everything that is not absolutely essential. Your agent will be able to advise you of any changes that should be made to your home that could add value or increase the attractiveness of your property. Below are some simple suggestinos that will improve the presentation of your property and help you achieve the highest possible price.


A bright and cheery home invites inspection.  Keep your lawn mowed and edged and flower beds cultivated. Windows should be sparkling.  Remove leaves from paths and verandahs.


The most importatnt task you can perform is to clear away all the clutter, clean surfaces and ensure all fixtures are operational. Remove any object from the floor such as children's toys which might cause accidents. Keep the front entrance and walkways clear.

Sparkling interior

Clean walls, floors,  skirtings and marks on the carpet or around light switches.  Put clutter away neatly in cupboards, clear table and counter tops and don't leave dishes in the sink!  A thorough house cleaning will give your home that well-kept look.


Introducing fresh flower throughout your home is a beautiful attractive way to enliven the appearance of a room.


Refresh your house and remove any bad or strong odours.

Fix Faults

Repair defects such as dripping taps, sticking doors, loose tiles etc.


Neat orderly rooms look larger.  Keep drawers and wardrobe doors closed and keep bedside tables free of bric-a-brac.  It is a good idea to have clean fresh sheets.  Avoid busy patterns on bed covers.


Bright and clean bathrooms sell many houses. Ensure the bathroom is free of mildrew, remove personal items and use a lightly scented room atomoiser to make sure the bathroom smells fresh & inviting.


Clean the entire kitchen with special attention to food preparation areas, sink, stove, oven & grill.  Make sure all open food products are away from sight, clean shelves and arrange stored goods attractively.


Solid light tones can bring walls to life, elegantly finished with just a couple of styled prints or wall hangings.

Leave the house

Leave the sales agent to sell your property and do not be present during inspections.

Remove animals from the house

Animals & food bowls & bedding should be removed during open inspections.
