Preparing your house for sale

Preparing your house for sale

Your house is likely to be your biggest financial asset and before you sell it, that needs to be taken into consideration. Preparing your house for sale before putting it on the market can increase the asking price and lessen the time to sale.

We assess the property internally and externally and prepare a comprehensive plan to ensure the right first impressions for prospective buyers. Through decluttering, some cosmetic redecorating and restyling, it is possible to increase the value of your property.

We strive to make your home as warm and welcoming as possible; clutter free and bright so prospective buyers can picture themselves living there.

Decluttering

Decuttering your house will make it look more spacious. There’s no point taking unwanted clutter with you so we can help you go through it all and clear it before the house is on the market. That includes garages, lofts and sheds!

Paperwork

Do you have a study full of paperwork dating back to when you bought the house? Have you still got every bank statement since you opened your bank account and all the children’s school reports? Are you ready to downsize the amount you have but do not know where to begin? Let us help – we can sort through your paperwork creating an easy to manage filing system of the paperwork that you need. The rest we will arrange to be shredded securely.

Home Refurbishment

Are there any retro design trends that are going to devalue your house? Artex ceilings, avocado bathrooms, heavily patterned carpets? Or is your garden overgrown or your curb appeal in need of some TLC? Let us help optimise the price of your property through managing some minor renovation works.

Home Staging

Once the decluttering is complete, let us maximise the space through simple furniture placement and styling. Too much furniture is a major contributor to a cluttered look and makes a room look small. If you’re not taking it with you, then we’ll rehome excess furniture and belongings at this point.

Antiques, collectables, fine art, etc.

If you are downsizing, you know you can’t take everything with you. We help you find room for the items you love and then find new homes for the things that don’t fit. We work with specialist and local auction houses and house clearance specialists to ensure nothing of value gets thrown away by mistake, and we’ll sell and recycle as much as we can on your behalf.
