• Expert advice on how to sell your home this summer

    Here are our top four tips for selling your home by ensuring it looks its very best:

    Chuck the clutter or get it stored

    Ditch the debris by making several trips to the recycling centre/tip or by giving away things that can be re-sold to charities. Put anything you’d like to keep in storage boxes with lids and give everything a good dust and clean before it goes away.

    Put kids and pets’ toys away

    These can be a bit of an eye sore so make sure there is space somewhere to store them away when potential buyers are coming to look around.

    Deep clean everything

    Everything looks and smells better when it has been properly cleaned. There are lots of specialist cleaning materials and tools available such as steamers, which are well worth the investment. If you have pets think about any issues related to hair on carpets and furniture. After doing all this you could invest in a lovely candle and lighting it before viewings, but never leave it unattended.

    Revamp and touch up

    Give your home a bit of a makeover to update its look and ensure that any scuffs and marks are covered up. You could also update any furniture by adding new accessories such as cushions.
