One Wise Choice for your Property

Selling Tips

Better Buyer Inspection Guide



PAVEMENT APPEAL

Make sure the front of your property looks appealing and inviting with a weed-free garden and some attractive pot plants. Remember, first impressions count!

CLEAN AND BRIGHT

Before every viewing give your property a once over, ensuring that windows are clean inside and out – it’s surprising how much difference it makes to the light.

CUT THE CLUTTER

You want the prospective buyer to be able to imagine their own belongings in the property, so declutter to keep things tidy. Less clutter will also help make rooms appear larger.

SET THE SCENE

You may want to hire furniture to create the look you desire. This is a great way to transform your home and give it extra appeal.

FIX IT

From leaking taps to a broken bulb, make sure the minor repairs are taken care of. A lick of paint will freshen scuffs and scrapes in the woodwork. Basic maintenance work will help to ensure buyers don’t find any faults.

FRESHEN UP

Get rid of smoke and/or pet odours. Open the windows, brew some fresh coffee, and brighten the place up with fresh flowers.

LIGHTEN UP

Increase the sense of space with mirrors and lights and leave all internal doors open.

PETS

Always clean and tidy up after your pets. Make sure you take them out of the property during open times.

WARMTH

Create warmth by preparing your home to suit the temperature of the day. If it’s cold, light fires, and turn on heating. If it’s hot, turn on fans and cooling systems.
