Decorating Your House for Sale

If you’re trying to sell your property it pays to transform it before you put it on the market. Look at it through a buyer’s eyes: how will they react to it? Will they see a property they can put their stamp on? Or will they see a home that belongs to someone else? Here's our guide to decorating you home for sale.

De-personalising your home

Some people find this hard, but remember you’re moving on. It’s time to start letting go of the property. Remove all the personal items and provide a blank canvas for people to consider as their own. You’ll be surprised how effective this can be.

Focus on the exterior

This is the first thing people see, so it should make a good impression. If you have a lawn, keep it short. Get rid of weeds and keep the driveway clean and clear if you have one. You may also want to add a coat of paint to the exterior of your home; this alone can make a huge difference. The idea is to impress people before they even walk in the front door.

De-clutter indoors

Now you’ve de-personalised, it’s time to de-clutter. There is just one rule here – put away anything and everything you can if it makes sense to do so. DVDs, books, toys, you name it – store it away neatly (you never know if someone will want to check the size of the cupboards!).

Think clean surfaces, clean lines, spacious rooms – you get the idea. This will make your home seem bigger and more inviting for those looking to buy and put their own stamp on it.

Just how important is decorating in this way?

Incredibly important – and it might mean your house sells for more money. You know the drill. The longer your property is on the market for, the more the price is reduced. If you can get a buyer early on, you’re likely to sell for more. If they enter your property and see inviting, spacious and clean rooms, they’ll be far more likely to fall in love with it than if it was cluttered, dusty and too busy.

You get the idea. Now it’s your turn to transform your home into a sale.
