Selling your Home and it Looks Like a Bruised Apple?

Just like you wouldn’t choose a bruised apple, potential buyers may expect to pay less for a property that doesn’t look its best.

There's an old saying – 'first impressions last' – and nothing could be truer when it comes to presenting your property for sale. That means a tidy and presentable interior and exterior, as many people will drive-by before deciding whether to inspect it during open homes.
Your property is usually just one in a very long list of properties a buyer will see, so it's crucial that they see it in the best possible light. The more desirable your property appears, the better your sale price is likely to be.
Clean, tidy, well-maintained
These are the three key presentation factors that will show your property at its best:
Give the property a good clean, inside and out, to make it appear more liveable.
Declutter - Clear away any clutter that has accumulated in living spaces to show off the spaces better. Just like a used car, a property that appears well-cared for is more valuable than one that has been run down. It's worth getting any small items fixed before sale.
Decoration: different tastes, different approaches. - Not everyone's decoration tastes are the same. It's often safer to assume a more neutral decoration style for your open homes – perhaps it's good idea to pack away your shell lamp or uncompromising self portraits.

Here are a few items to consider when decorating your home for sale:
Paintings or mirrors to help fill blank walls
Vases and plants for a homely feel
Single beds to maximise the space in smaller bedrooms
Outdoor furniture to show a buyer how they might use the area

Presentation has never been so important, so if you are just too busy Over & Above Moving will help you create the WOW factor and encourage an emotional buy-in. Phone 0800 22 88 24 for a free consultation.
