Kerb Appeal

  • First impressions can make all the difference
  • Your front garden should be tidy and lawns cut
  • Hanging baskets and pot plants add colour
  • Any external paint work should be touched up
  • Rubbish bins to be kept out of sight


  • Correct lighting can help your property feel welcoming and bright
  • Turn on lights, lamps and fires
  • Open curtains and blinds

DIY Jobs

  • Complete those jobs you’ve been putting off however big or small
  • Something as minor as a cupboard door hanging off can put a buyer off



  • Freshen up any tired paintwork
  • Strong personal colours may benefit from being neutralised to help potential buyers visualise their own space


  • Remove clutter from surfaces (the odd photo is fine)
  • Ensure beds are fully made and sheets and cushions are aligned
  • Remove bathmats and excessive toiletries from bathrooms
  • Ensure property is clean and tidy

Focal Points

  • Fresh flowers or fruit bowls can act as a good focal point on a table or window sill


  • Pets and pet beds/bowls should be out of sight
  • Eradicate any pet smells – open windows and use air fresheners


  • Allow space on the drive for viewers to arrive and park
  • Be prepared to move your car for the main external photograph
