Curb Appeal Is Important - First Impressions Count
It may sound simple but make sure your house is in a good state of repair. Fix that broken garden gate, get that boiler serviced, repair those cracked tiles and paste any falling wallpaper. Little things that this really do matter.
Make sure your home is sparkling and clean. Clean the grouting in the bathroom, mop, vacuum and wax the floors, high and low dust. Open the windows to get fresh air into the house. If cleaning is not your forte consider hiring a cleaner for a through clean through.
Buying new towels and soft furnishing that co-ordinate, and adding fresh flowers in the living room can be simple touches that update the feel of the home making it fresh and inviting.

If you are a hoarder consider getting rid of some of your clutter and/or packing away some of your personal effects until after you sell your home. Buy some storage containers to hide some of your belongings such as the kids toys until after the viewing.
Limiting clutter will make the home look bigger. Potential owners need to be able to visualise what the property would look like if they were living there.
First impressions do count, we hear this said time and time again and it is especially true when selling your home. If the wood is peeling on your door, give it a coat of paint, remove any dead flowers from the garden and if you have a front lawn, mow it. Consider adding pot plants or hanging baskets to the front of the property to get that curb appeal.

Renovate The Bathroom
Make the bathroom as appealing as possible to as many people as possible. Hide away your toiletries, buy a new cabinet or two and some new fresh towels. You may love your bright tiles but consider buying tile paint to make them neutral as your taste may not be to everybody's taste. If your bathroom is really old and you are having difficulty in selling your home, a small investment in a new bathroom could mean you get the asking price for your home - it's worth considering.
