Selling your property quickly and gaining the best possible price has got to be a priority for

any prospective seller and there are a few simple steps which you can take to improve your

chances greatly.

First impressions are very important; your prospective purchaser will form an opinion

within thirty seconds of drawing up outside your property. Make sure your garden is kept

tidy; a well maintained garden usually looks larger and needing less maintenance than an

untidy one.

A fresh coat of paint can work wonders to improve the appearance of a wood front door

and concrete or wood window sills. Make sure the interior of your home is free of clutter.

Consider short term storage options to allow your rooms to show off their true size and to

allow potential buyers a clearer picture of how a room could look to them.

The smell of flowers can make a room feel more welcoming, as can a warm home in Winter

and open windows in the Summer.

If you have a dog or cat try to keep them and their food and bedding isolated when people

visit, as not everyone likes animals.

There are very few purchasers who buy the home of their dreams and do not want to

change anything. All too often when you view a property you see it as it is, not as what it

could be.

The best way to view a property is to use the viewing record page in this guide. List all of the

positive and negative points of the property and your feelings about it. In your own time sit

down and work out how much it will cost you to alter the property to your own tastes and

requirements. The businesses featured in this guide are there to help you do this.

At the end of the day the choice is yours. However, in our many years we have seen so

many property transformations which have taken a sad and dilapidated property and

turned it into a home anyone would be proud of. Think on, see the future, not the present.
