Top tips when selling your home

Top tips for increasing the value of your home

Originally posted: 29th August, 2022

Get the best possible outcome

When it comes to selling your home you want to get the best possible outcome.

Here are some of our top tips for increasing the value of your home:

Make that first impression count

Prepare your home for viewings by spending time making the outside area tidy and presentable. The majority of buyers take only seconds to form that all-important first impression of a property.

Clean and tidy

A clean, tidy home will make the best impression on buyers, so give each room a thorough spring clean, paying special attention to the kitchen and bathroom.

Fix any problems

You don’t want buyers to see damage in your home, such as missing or cracked tiles or leaky taps, so get all problems fixed prior to putting your house on the market.


Clutter can look messy and also make rooms look far smaller than they are, so take some time to remove as much clutter as you can.

Go neutral

Strong colours can put buyers off, but by keeping everything neutral it will appeal to more buyers and allow them to see how the house will look once they are in it and how they may want to personalise it. It’s worth taking the time to paint rooms in neutral colours.
