Many homes feature rooms originally designed for one purpose – for example a dining room – which end up becoming offices, gyms or playrooms. But this confuses buyers so restore these spaces to their original or traditional use.
Experts say that if you remove approximately a third of your belongings from a property (particularly large items such as unnecessary armchairs and chests of drawers) then your home will appear larger inside and be more appealing to buyers.
Research shows that those arriving at a property to view it will have made their decision within 15 seconds of seeing the front door. So concentrate as much time and effort (and a little money) as you can on your front door and, if you have one, on the garden in front of it.
Myriad pictures of your wedding day, family gatherings and keepsakes from foreign holidays tend to distract those viewing your home from its best features. So hide them away.
Traditionally coffee brewing and baking bread have been seen as the best smells to accompany a would-be buyer through a viewing - but research has also identified white tea and fresh figs as among the most effective smells. Give it a try!
A messy back garden will put buyers off but so will one that’s been manicured at a very high standard – so it might be a good idea to tone down your horticultural ambitions and keep things simple prior to a sale.
