Tips for Successfully Selling Your Property

Choosing a good estate agent is perhaps the most important decision when selling your property, but there are also things you can do to help the process along. Here are just a few tips that should make selling your property a lot easier.


  • If you are showing people around your property it is a good idea to keep the best room until last. The wisdom of doing this is that it leaves the viewer with the most favourable impression of your home.

  • The way your home smells can have a huge impact on the success of the viewing. Even if your property is a great option viewers might not appreciate this fact if there is a bad odour. The problem is that when we live somewhere we don¬ít notice the smells but they will be noticeable by other people. Make sure that you take the time to air your home before viewers arrive.

  • Use fresh flowers to brighten up the place and these can also help mask any nasty smells.

  • We all know that first impressions count and this is as true with property as it is with people. Make sure that your home looks its best right from the moment the prospective viewer walks through your gate.

  • You will want to do all you can to remove any clutter in your home. This not only makes the home look more visually appealing but it also makes the house seem bigger.

  • One area that you will want to focus on during your tidy is the kitchen; this should be spotless.

  • If you have kids then you may want them out of the house during the viewings.

  • These points seem fairly simple however they are vital to ensure the best impression of your property.
