Guide to presenting your property

Here are our top tips for making your home more desirable to potential buyers and tenants.

1. Give each room a purpose

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.

2. De-clutter

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.

3. Give your investment kerb appeal

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.

4. De-personalise your home

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.

5. Make your property smell nice inside

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!

6. Tidy but don’t overdo your back garden

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.

Lucy Pendleton to give insight into the recent November 2017 House Price Index.
James Pendleton is an amazing company. They have been a big part of me winning a bronze medal in Rio 2016 and have been so supportive with all my achievements, which wouldn't have been possible without them. They have given me so many opportunities, I am privileged to be associated with such fantastic people who give so much back to the local community.

Having recently rented my property through James Pendelton, I can't recommend them highly enough. They walked me through the process and found me amazing tenants. From the first contact they were professional and informative. Thank you to Jacob, you were amazing. Thank you also to the Angel Department who, after realising I needed safely certificates, sorted everything out for me and made sure I had everything in order.
