First Impressions Count

You have just seconds to create a good first impression, and therefore curb-side appeal is so important...

Here are some things to think about when selling your property: 

Make sure your agents "For Sale" sign is looking clean and tidy with clear contact details, and is in a visible position for passers-by. 

Clean the windows and front door and clear guttering. 

Focus on your front door – could it do with re-hanging or painting? 

Sweep and tidy any steps or pathways so accessing your property is simple to do. 

Invest in nice numbering or a name plaque. 

Utilise space – if you have parking or room to sit outside, show this to potential buyers. 

Scrape away any loose paint on the property and give areas a lick of paint if needed. 

Tidy the front garden / driveway area and make sure bins are out the way where possible. 

Replant any hanging baskets or borders you have. 

Have nice lighting outside for those passing in the evening.
