Selling Tips

There are many ways that you can add to the appeal of your home for prospective buyers. Here are a few tips you might consider when selling your home.


Clear rooms of excess items and furniture so buyers can see the space and imagine themselves living there. Clutter can limit your chances of finding the right buyer as their attention is diverted by your belongings.
Your home should still feel homely but maybe a little less personal as its now on show and needs to appeal to as many buyers as possible to achieve the maximum sale price.


Setting the right mood is an invaluable tool to help prospective buyers feel relaxed and comfortable when looking for their new home. It has been proven that our senses are very important in making us feel relaxed and at home. Some light background classical music will allow buyers to relax and spend more time growing to love your home. The aroma in your home is also extremely important, the old cliché of having freshly baked bread or brewed coffee is very true but for most unpractical. We therefore suggest prior to viewings maybe have a subtle candle or incense burning be careful not to have anything that's overpowering and be sure to extinguish prior to buyers arrival.

Street Appeal

It is important to ensure your home has good street appeal. You never have a second chance to make a first impression. Spend some time having a good look at the front of your home. Ensure your garden is not overgrown a neat and tidy garden will certainly add to the value of your home as it is the first thing buyers will see. Perhaps you could add some potted colour to welcome visitors to the front door of your home. During Spring and Summer you could even plant some annuals. Be sure to replace old letterbox and street numbers and also clear off all cobwebs and dust from eaves and fences.


Look at ways to improve how light fills your rooms. Possibly add a lamp in dark areas, lamps also add a cosy feel to lounge rooms or reading spaces. Combining overhead, floor, table and accent lighting will help to create atmosphere and interest. Buyers love bright and airy spaces and having natural light fill a room is very appealing. Keep curtains open to allow as much natural light as possible into your home. Adding mirrors, silver or glass bowls and vases and other reflective objects to a room will also help to enhance the lighting in a room.
