Top 5 Tips To Get Your Home Pre Sale Ready
So, you have made the decision to sell your beloved home but the though of preparing it for sale has you feeling overwhelmed. Never fear, at NEST we are experts in helping our customers prepare their homes for professional pictures and sales inspections.
TIP 1 – SIMPLIFY
Declutter and eliminate items that don’t need to be on display! It’s time to strip back each room and simplify. Remove anything that takes up space that really doesn’t need to be there. Think display home clean! Neat, tidy and clutter free.
TIP 2 – CLEAN
Declutter and start from the top of each room, working your way down. E.G fans, light fittings, ledges, windows, sills, walls, thorough dusting of furniture, floors. Do what is visible and noticeable and leave the inside of cupboards to the actual settlement clean. Your focus should be on what you can see because if you can see dirt, dust and clutter it’s a sure bet that your potential buyers will see it too. Our NEST Pre Sale Cleaners can help save you time and stress, leave this bit for us!
TIP 3 – MOVE OUTSIDE
The first thing people will see is the front of your home so you need to make a good impression from the outside in. A neat, tidy garden, clean paths, fences and windows and entry will all help in creating a warm welcome.
TIP 4 – SETTING THE SCENE
Fresh flowers, beautiful smelling candles all help in setting the scene and creating a fragrant and welcoming space. Fresh, crisp bed linen and towels is also a must. Your potential buyer will want to picture themselves in here and it’s our job to help them! Why not add a bowl of fruit to the kitchen table!
TIP 5 – KEEPING IT ALL CLEAN
Either commit to giving your home a mini clean each day or book in a NEST Happy Housekeeper to help maintain your home through your sale campaign until that sold sticker hits the for sale sign.
