Dressing Your Home For Sale

So you have decided to sell your property, the likelihood is you want it to go through swiftly, so here are a few tips you can follow on how dressing your home can make the process as efficient as possible and maybe even add to the value along the way.


The Curb Appeal

  • Don’t forget the garden is the first thing prospect buyers will see so make sure all pathways are clear and tidy.
  • You can put a few containers out to brighten the place up or stage some seating if there is room.
  • If you have a lawn then ensure you mow it.

Declutter But Don’t Depersonalise 

  • Get rid of anything you have been hoarding, excess stuff can look messy but if there is something you are desperate to keep hold of then give it to a friend for safe keeping.
  • Showcase the space by removing bulky furniture.
  • People need to envisage what the property would look like if they were to move in so leave a few personal items around, your favourite books for example.
  • People are often buying into a lifestyle not just a property. Show them the attractive side of your lifestyle. 

Accessorising your home with quality items and furnishings can really make a difference!


A Fresh Lick Of Paint

  • Use neutral colours to make the home seem lighter and bigger.
  • A lot of buyers will be looking for something that needs minimal work so freshening up the house this way increases sale-ability.
  • An easy way to make a good first impression.

Light & Airy

  • Mirrors make a room look bigger and brighter especially in smaller rooms and hallways.
  • Don’t forget to clean your windows inside and outside and replace any broken lightbulbs.
  • Turn lamps on during any viewings.
  • Remember that light makes a property more attractive. 

Decluttering your home and focusing on a few feature items can really make an impact!


Get The Right Smells

  • Bad smells are a major turn off for prospect buyers. Clear drains, wash bins, open windows, air the kitchen, make sure nothing unpleasant is lingering.
  • If you are a smoker, place bowls of vinegar around the property for a few days. Although the vinegar will smell at first once you open the windows it will disappear taking the stale cigarette smell with it.
  • Light a candle, fresh cotton or vanilla are good neutral scents and not too overpowering. Alternatively, boil some water in a pan and add some cinnamon oil to get that freshly baked smell without having to actually bake.

Make It Look Pretty

  • Cushions, throws and rugs brighten up a living space and can also be used in bedrooms.
  • Plants and flowers bring life to a property and also smell wonderful. Choose a bright pot for your plant.
  • A Fruit bowl is an easy way to liven up a kitchen counter.
  • Neutral bed linen should be used and put fresh towels in bathrooms. 

Neutral colour schemes with a splash of colour always go down well!
