Kerb Appeal is Sex Appeal

One of the questions we always get asked is ‘do I need to re-paint to sell my home’. It is true, a well kept home does attract attention. But there are a few things you can do without breaking the bank to get your home ready to market,

Look at your entrance with the rose tinted glasses off. Give the front door a good clean and if you have a porch clear this of shoes, bags and the usual things we dump when we get home.Cut the grass, sweep the path, get rid of weeks and rubbish. Make your garden look easy to maintain and tidy. If there are any broken slates then try and fix them.

The two main areas to have looking spit spot are the kitchen and bathroom. Clear worktops, wipe down units, and have as much stuff tidied away as possible. People want to imagine being in the kitchen cooking and drinking wine or feeding the kids. Make it look inviting, and a place you would want to hang out in. Next is the bathroom. Make sure its clean and again free from clutter. A couple of fresh towels and the odd accessory makes all the difference.

After that its a tidy up job. Make the bedrooms attractive with nice bedding and a couple of cushions. Add some fresh flowers to the living room to bring the outside in. Light some candles to scent the home.

Then its photo ready!
