Spruce it up

The first impression is really important when it comes to selling a house so make sure your front door is sparkling clean, its knob and the welcome rug new. In some cases, a fresh coat of paint can also make a big difference.

The same thing stands for your entry hallway – painting the walls won’t cost you that much and you can at least make sure the carpet is not torn or worn-out if you don’t feel like replacing it.

And if the first impression matters, the last look people and valuers get of your house is equally important. Your back garden is usually at the end of a house tour so a few little fixes will come in handy. Trim the bushes, cut the grass and try to give it a feel it’s the ideal place to invite friends over for a barbecue in a sunny afternoon. 


Regardless of how hard you try to keep your house nice and tidy, there will always be possessions that are hard to hide and bits-and-bobs scattered around. You may think that this kind of clutter won’t make a difference, but getting rid of anything that makes a home feel untidy can really help. Pack it up and store it in the attic or give it to a friend who might find it useful.

Remember your aim is to make your home look like an ideal place to live so you have to offer attention to the parts that can catch peoples’ eye, like a spacious back garden or a welcoming living room. Just make sure they are kept clean, there is no damaged furniture and everything is in its place.   

Easy DIY

There are plenty of simple tricks you can do to ensure your home makes a greater impact on the viewers or the valuers.

Replacing broken doorknobs, fixing any holes in the walls, mending squeaking floors and doors, taking care of broken tiles in the kitchen or cracked plant pots – these may all seem really straightforward but it’s almost unbelievable to see how many people ignore them.

You can’t really hope your house will stand out and help you achieve that quick sale you want when there are so many imperfections. Small differences really do make all the difference when it comes to the property market.

Keep it fresh

Another basic thing people often forget about is to properly ventilate the house and offer it a welcoming feeling. Sometimes it can happen you’re tight on schedule and barely make it home on time but airing the rooms can be done over a few days before the viewing or valuation.

Even better, you can cook something nice and let the smell travel through the house. It can make a good impression and people appreciate when they’re treated like important guests.

These little things will not drastically improve your property’s value but they definitely have the power to impress and can influence people to accept a deal that suits you better or you can receive a better valuation.
