When selling a property, kerb appeal is a must!

Potential buyers make a decision on a property in less than 8 seconds, so first impressions really do count.

A run-down exterior with cracks in the walls, peeling paintwork or dirty windows give the impression of a lack of care and maintenance – and the possibility of bigger problems to come.

Whether a smart exterior adds value to a property is a matter of debate, but it will certainly get potential buyers through the front door with a positive frame of mind and may be an influencing factor to achieve a quick sale.

Make an Impact!

  • Fix and clean – make any minor repairs, clean everything till it sparkles,
  • a fresh lick of paint – giving your walls a fresh lick of neutral paint will make your home seem lighter and bigger,
  • declutter but don’t depersonalise,
  • light a fire or have the heating on – if it is a cold day this will make your home feel warm and inviting and  
  • get the right smells – clear drains, wash bins, open windows, air the kitchen from old cooking smells. Light scented candles or bake fresh bread.
