The first tips is the simplest. It's obviously a must to clean and tidy your home before an inspection, but it's crucial to also get rid of clutter that would stand in the way of a potential buyer picturing themselves living within the home.
That means getting rid of personal nick knacks and photographs, unnecessary furniture. You may need to organise a storage facility so that you can pack and store unwanted items and furniture.
Make any aesthetic repairs well before inspection. things like filling chips in walls and leaking taps etc. Make a to do list and stick to it. Does you home need a fresh coat of paint?
You may want to invest in new window treatments if yours are out of date. On the day of the Home Open, open all window treatments and let the natural light in.
Do you need to replace old tired outdated light fittings?
Invest in high wattage globes to lighten each space.
ORGANISE A STYLIST
Once you're clutter free and you've crossed off the to do list. Then its time to call the stylist. She will advise on and tweak on anything that could potentially put a client off, from making an offer. She may advise you to remove some furniture items to make the space appear bigger. Or reinvent a room in a better way. She will show you how to make a bed that looks like it came out of a magazine. She may give you a shopping list of items to buy for your home to create more impact. She will also show you how to create a WOW factor in each room to entice the buyer.
It's very important to have professionally presented photos, as people will peruse the internet, so you want yours to stand out from your competitors. A Professional photographer knows which angle to best present a room in the best possible way.
Your Sales Agent will have a photographer that they use.

Some things you need to consider
What is a property Assessment?
A Property Assessment is needed before you put your home on the market. The reason for this is because, the assessment is taken from a buyers perspective. This gives the seller a better idea of what needs to be done before the Home Open. Also this gives them a better chance for a better presentation of their home.

We will leave you with a property report, with a to do list. A list much like the one above. Whilst we are there at your home, we'll also make a report on the back yard.

With a strong link between gratitude and wellbeing, we could all do with learning a little hygge.
Hygge: a phenomenon first documented in the 18th century, Denmark. Pronounced " heurgha"
( it makes a sound like you're clearing your throat) In English it means a "hug"
The meaning of "hygge" is the absence of anything annoying or emotionally overwhelming: taking pleasure from the presence of gentle soothing things. Candlelight is "hygge" ( Danes burn more candles per head than any where else in the Europe, according to the European Candle Association)
Bakeries are "hygge" and dinner with friends is "hygge". Hygge is about appreciating the little things in life, hygge is a big deal in Denmark. They are hygge fundamentalist's.
Denmark is regularly voted one of the happiest countries in the world, so could this recognition of hygge moments and gratitude for times past contribute to the high levels of contentment?
Studies show that there's a clear link between gratitude and wellbeing.
Danes have been proven to less materialistic than other cultures, and they appreciate low cost activities and the simple things in life, like having a coffee and lighting some candles to create a cosy atmosphere.
The Danes do "cosy" like no other nation. A typical home in Denmark will look like something out of an Ideal home magazine. They use a lot of natural material including wood and leather. Lamps are artfully positioned to create pools of light. Lights are used to make spaces feel relaxed and warm.
I think we could all do with a little more hygge, don't you?

Spring Cleaning doesn't necessarily mean you have to resort to harsh chemicals in order to have a sparkling clean home.
Try these recipes for homemade cleaning products. Products you may have in your cupboard.
Place a small bowl of water with 1/4 cup of lemon juice in your microwave, and run it on high for 1 minute. Remove the bowl and wipe the inside with a cloth. Baked on stains should come off with hot water. You can scrape off stubborn stains with a credit card. But not the window
To clean a greasy oven, mix 1 cup of baking soda and 1/4 cup of washing soda, then slowly pour in enough water to make a paste. With gloves on, smear the paste on oven surfaces and leave on overnight. Wipe off the paste the next morning with hot water.
You can keep your tiles and glass clean by keeping a squeegee in the shower. And after each shower, wipe down the surfaces. The problem here is getting others to do it.
If your shower rose is clogged, place it in a saucepan of 8 parts water to 1 part vinegar, and simmer for 15 min. (This is for a metal shower rose)
For a plastic shower rose, soak in equal parts of water and vinegar.
Add 1 cup of vinegar to 1 cup of water and pour the mixture into a spray bottle. Spray and wipe with a lint free cloth or squeegee which will minimise streaks.
It makes sense the the less chemicals you use in your home, the healthier the environment is for your family.
Here are some tricks to help you organise your wardrobe ready for SUMMER.
An empty home just has no appeal whats so ever. Ask any Home Stylist, they will all agree.
If your home is going on the market, and it's empty, then the prospective buyer hasn't got anything to look at, but its faults. And they will scrutinize every little detail, or lack of. A lot of buyers can not visualise an empty room. But if you furnish an empty home then they have beautiful furniture to look at. And this aids in the way of a distraction in some cases. As you may have carpet that need to be updated, but you're short of cash.They will also get more of an idea what the rooms are designed for.
As you can see furniture in a room has more appeal to a prospective buyer.
What a difference a bit of furniture can make, for a great impression.
