Top 10 Selling Tips: Freshen Up!

Freshen Up

TOP 10 Selling Tips from Harvey Brooks
> 3. Freshen Up...

A fresh coat of neutral paint, new tiling or lino, and a couple of new kitchen doors can do wonders to smarten up a tired-looking property. If you can't stretch to re-tiling in the bathroom, re-grouting should bring it up new. The same effect can be achieved by installing matching

chrome fittings; replacing broken light bulbs; re-painting the front door; ironing sheets in the bedroom; taking down any heavy dark drapes; installing up-lighters in the living room for subtle lighting; and strategically placing flowers throughout.

If you'd rather not re-decorate, it is still essential that the house be spotless. Getting industrial cleaners in to really make the place sparkle will be money well-spent; have the carpets, sofa covers, oven and windows cleaned while you're at it.

Pay special attention to the kitchen and bathrooms, which need to be inviting and hygienic; finish up with a new loo seat; fresh white towels; and a strategically placed plant or two.

Watch out for over-stuffed wardrobes - yes, people do look in them to check the amount of storage space - so clear them out.

Finally, the garden is now seen as an additional room, so be sure to make your garden feel like a great space for entertaining and relaxing.
