How to prepare your home for inspections

Selling your home doesn’t have to be a painstaking process, be in the best position possible to get your house noticed and get that ‘SOLD’ sign up.

1. Make the entrance appealing

From the gate to the front door. Most buyers will drive past a property before inspecting it and if it doesn’t have good street appeal they won’t even bother turning up for the first open house.

Draw buyers to your open house with some street appeal.

 

2. De-clutter

Create the illusion that you live in the perfect house. Get rid of all the knick knacks and surplus furniture, they make your property feel smaller than it really is. Remember we want the buyers to view your home and it’s features not the contents.

 

3. Clean & improve

Make your house shine so that buyers aren’t already calculating how much work and extra money they have to invest in your property to bring it up to scratch. For every area that buyers see needs work they will factor in a discount on the price they will offer you.
