Nothing can enhance the look and feel of your property like a good clean and de-clutter.

It’s important to reduce the amount of items that can be seen – think of it like packing for a holiday, once you think you have what you need, halve it, and then halve it again. Never underestimate the positive effect that a minimalist look will have. You want your property to look like there is plenty of space and de-cluttering will make your house appear more spacious and inviting to potential buyers. Sort through items and put excess furniture and clothes into storage.

What buyers see and smell will influence them, so lighten up any dark corners by painting them and keeping them free of clutter. If pets are part of your home, deodorise and air the property. For open house or general inspections, it’s important to make your property feel and smell like a real home. Creating an authentic scent for the property in major spaces including living areas, bedrooms, and kitchens is critical – think about flower arrangements & different types of flowers in living areas. Furthermore, baking bread, muffins or creating that fresh coffee smell in the kitchen and surrounding areas to promote a sense of home is really important and not to be overlooked – it works, so make the effort!
