Our Top Tips For Presenting Your Home

Internal Ideas

  • Start by banishing any floating cobwebs around the ceilings, walls & light fittings. It’s the details we don’t look at in our own homes that viewers are the first to pick up on.
  • It’s worth a basic spring clean to each room before marketing, you will appreciate it when you’re running late and don’t have the time to flick a duster round before a viewing.
  • Make sure all light bulbs are working; where possible replace low energy bulbs with bright bulbs. Low energy bulbs may give a dull light which can often leave a room feeling lifeless.
  • Strategically place flowers on the dining table or in the entrance hall.
  • If you have doors guilty of creaking give the hinges a spray of WD40.
  • An entrance hall should be inviting, it is imperative not to clutter the space with coats & shoes, make sure these are hidden before each viewing.
  • Use a plug-in air freshener on the lowest setting to create a welcoming aroma.
  • Try to avoid anything un-necessary on the kitchen counter & give a wipe over before any viewings.
  • All televisions, radios, dishwashers etc should be off during viewings; nothing should cloud the atmosphere, viewers often wish to communicate discretely, which can be difficult with other noise present.
  • We all use shampoos, shower gels and creams in the bathroom, but to potential buyers it is just clutter. Put them in the airing cupboard before each viewing. If someone has recently showered, just open the window slightly to let in a bit of fresh air.
  • If your bedroom is currently being used as an office or storage room, it is worth re-dressing it as a bedroom (especially if it’s on the small side) as some people simply can’t see past what is there
  • When it comes to furniture, some re-arrangement may be in order. Avoid obstructing the doors; it immediately makes a room feel smaller if you have to side step furniture to get into a room. The best way to convey space inside is to push the furniture against the walls and into the corners of the room.
