Preparing Your Home for Viewings

Moving home is widely considered to be one of the most stressful life events. It’s made doubly stressful when you need to sell your home. This will involve viewings, and the price you get for your home will depend largely on the first impression made by your home at your viewings.

Often, it’s the little things that potential buyers will notice. Here are some tips for preparing your home for viewings:

It’s a bit of a cliché but first impressions really do count. By first impression we mean the initial impact your home makes on potential buyers. What is it people first see? Obviously it’s the outside of your home. Ensure this is given just as much love and attention as the inside, that your garden is carefully manicured and there are no problems with your home’s facade, for example damaged or rotten fascias.

Obviously the inside of your home is very important too. You will undoubtedly have a perfectly lovely living room, dining room etc, but you need to think carefully about how you can make it look even nicer. Just a few small additions could mean a difference of thousands of pounds on the price you get for your home.

There are all sorts of luxury home accessories that you can incorporate in your home, so that it leaves the perfect first impression. For example, you might choose to line your mantelpiece with designer candles, relatively affordable but extremely stylish.
