When it comes to selling your home, the old saying ‘First Impressions Last’ is definitely true. The presentation of your home can attract potential purchasers and ultimately can play on the final sale price. Don’t stress about spending a fortune on decorating, we’ve put together a few tips to help give your home the lasting impression It deserves!

 

Clean
The best thing you can do is clean from top to bottom and air your house daily, this will enable the home to feel fresh. Ensure you’re outside gardens and lawns are neat and maintained so the home looks well-presented from the first moment potential purchasers take a look.

 

Declutter
Over time, we all tend to accumulate treasured items but when selling a home it’s important to make your home feel open and fresh so potential purchasers can imagine themselves living there. Keeping benches and surfaces and free of clutter and adding a few small decorative items around the home will help with this. Don’t forget about tidying up your deck/verandah’s!

 

Simple Things
Take notice of the temperature inside your home, if it’s hot outside turn on the air conditioning or ceiling fans while the open home is taking place. In the cooler months, it’s a great idea to warm the home up with heaters and fireplaces so it creates a warm and cosy atmosphere inside.

Adding plug-in air fresheners and fresh flowers are a great way to keep your home smelling great, be sure to keep the smell subtle.

The smell in a home also plays an important role. Fresh flowers or plug-in air fresheners are a great way to bring life into your home. Just be sure not to make the smell over powering as this can turn people off – keep it subtle.
