If you are preparing your home for sale, you DEFINITELY know that it’s not all profits coming your way.

If you are looking for a quick sale, or you would like your process to be made more efficient, then heed the advice of some of our favourite experts.
Painting the town red
“Fixing small paint problems or refreshing a particularly tired internal wall will make a big difference to the overall appearance of your home. An on trend feature wall, or update of colours gives the whole house a more modern feel” – Ben from AJ Cochrane & Sons
Don’t be led down the garden path
“Street appeal is vital for getting buyers through the door, but also for giving them a positive first impression. What you want is them doing a walk through with the right attitude, not being sceptical from the outset” – Jarrod from Sudden Impact Landscapes
Keep things stylish
“Consider the art of the small touches. Gorgeous lamps, interesting artworks, updates to outdated and dusty furniture. Mirrors can really open up spaces to give the illusion of breadth and ‘on trend’ touches like Hamptons styling and colouring will really appeal to the modern market” – Melanie from Stagency
