You might not notice the imperfections as you go through the house every day but a potential buyer definitely will. Make sure you keep on top of the home maintenance and that you keep your home clean and tidy throughout the viewing stage of selling your house, buyers will appreciate it.

2. A fresh lick of paint

A fresh lick of paint will definitely go a long way when it comes to enticing potential buyers. If your paintwork looks old and worn buyers really will notice and it might put them off.

They are looking for space where all their family can congregate and share food and discussion about their day.

4. Light and airy

When selling your home, you need to make sure that natural light is finding its way in and that you air the house regularly. Open windows to let air in and make sure that your home smells pleasant. You should also think about putting up mirrors to help the light bounce around your home. Placed with thought, they can really help make your home appear brighter and larger.

5. Get the right smells

We’re sure you have heard that old story about making sure you have bread baking in the oven when inviting viewers into your home. Tips like this really can help though. Potential buyers love to be able to imagine what their life would be like if they were to move into your house. What could possibly be better than a home in which baking happens? It’s inviting and makes people feel instantly at home. Think carefully about what other scents you could use, citrus, for instance, makes your home smell clean and fresh.
