It may sound the simplest thing - but
cleaning your house is one of the
most effective things you can do to sell your home fast. A clean house and fresh home has a much better
effect on viewers.
How to clean my
It's essential that the house clean and spotless. Start
cleaning at the top of house and work down. Pay special attention to the kitchen and bathrooms, which need to be inviting and hygienic,
clean all surfaces, use an old toothbrush to clean around taps and hard to reach shower fittings. Polish off all chrome to give a sparking clean finish.
If you don't have the time or the energy to clean your home then it will be money well spent to get
domestic cleaners in to really make the place sparkle.
If the loo seat has seen better days buy a new one, buy new bath mats, put out hotel white fresh towels for photography day and viewings. Keep them away until the next viewing,
it's easier than getting them washed in time. Strategically place a green or artificial plant or two.
Consider some re-decoration to
entrance hall, kitchen, bathrooms and master bedroom as it does give a fresh look to a property. Use neutral
paint where possible.
Repair broken fittings,
consider new bathroom tiles or replacing tatty lino, and new kitchen doors can do wonders to smarten up a tired looking property. If you can't stretch to re-tiling in the bathroom re-grouting
should bring it up new. As will putting in matching chrome fittings, replacing broken light bulbs, a freshly painted
front door, ironed duvets in the bedroom, plumping cushions, taking down any heavy dark drapes, up-lighters in the living
room for subtle lighting and strategically placed flowers throughout.
Watch out for over-stuffed wardrobes, people do look in them to see how much storage is there, so have
that over-due clear out and organise to sell-off, give away or pass on
to charity shops things you no longer need.
Finally gardens are now seen as an additional room, so make it feel like a great entertaining or relaxing space by weeding, adding garden furniture and planting a few all year round plants.
In general green glossy leaves look good and are hardier plants.
