  • De-clutter – you need to showcase the accommodation on offer, make sure that a potential buyer can clearly see the property
  • Remove excess furniture – too much furniture can make even the largest rooms look small
  • Remember potential buyers are ‘aspirational’ not only are they looking at the bricks and mortar of your home, they are looking to see whether it would suit either the lifestyle they have or the lifestyle they aspire to have – present your home with this in mind, dress each room to best display its function.
  • If there are small DIY jobs that need doing, do them, same with any decorating jobs you’ve been putting off – buyers do not always have the imagination to see past minor repairs or updating, instead they foresee additional cost and effort.
  • If you smoke, try to keep the property smelling fresh by smoking outside whilst you are marketing your home.
  • Pets – put any litter trays and pet beds either outside, in the garage or out of the way somewhere, animal smells can be off putting to some buyers.


  • Forget the curb appeal of your property, make sure all external areas are clean, neat and tidy.
  • Undertake big projects in order to sell. Replacing kitchens and bathrooms may potentially improve the saleability of your home, but may cost you more than you gain, not to mention the disruption and inconvenience. If there are big jobs that need doing they will be taken into consideration when the asking price is discussed with you.
  • Ignore viewing feedback, if there is a reoccurring point raised from the feedback then you may need to think about ways to overcome the issue.
