When hosting viewings, sometimes it’s best to make the home more neutral so that viewers can imagine themselves living there. The home ought to be decluttered when people are viewing – not depersonalised as it doesn’t want to appear to be a generic showroom.


Professional photography

This couldn’t be more important. Professional photography for your property is key to ensuring that online viewers see the property at its best, rather than through the lens of an iPhone. It’s key to ensuring that at face value your property is as appealing as in real life.


Clean, clean, clean

Do not underestimate the power of a clean home. Potential buyers may be put off by unkempt surroundings and be unable to imagine themselves living there. Clean everything until it’s immaculate; get rid of limescale and rust, clean and repair damaged areas, wax wooden floors, etc.
