Positive First impressions

  • Front door cleaned of any shoe scuffs and touch up with paint where necessary
  • For properties yet to be renovated,  we can visually show buyers the potential of the property by decorating the walls, ceiling and floor of the front entrance.

Appeal to the Senses

  • Throw windows and doors open an hour or so prior to inspection where possible to avoid stuffiness

  • Turn on sufficient lights when inspections are being held to compensate for any dark areas.

  • The aroma of brewing coffee or freshly baked bread will convey the impression that you enjoy your property.

  • Bathrooms should be gleaming. Repair any broken tiles and reseal around the bath and basin if necessary. A dish of scented potpourri or soaps add a nice touch.

  • Place freshly cut flowers on your coffee table in living area

  • Turn the radio or TV off, maybe in favour of a restful CD.

  • Make sure the temperature inside is comfortable – even light the fire in winter.

It’s the little things that count

  • Attend to any small maintenance jobs such as sticking doors or windows, dripping taps, squeaking hinges, loose door handles, blown light bulbs or faulty switches.

Create a feeling of spaciousness

  • To enlarge room size appearance, De clutter and put bulky furniture into storage.

Lastly

  • Allow your buyers the time and relaxed atmosphere to become emotionally involved in your property by leaving the premises during inspections. Your consultant will maintain security at all times.
