Five Things You Must Do Before You Put Your House Up For Sale.

First impressions are everything.
First impressions are everything, when a visitor drives up to your home what he sees is vitally important. He may be impressed or he may be put off, he may drive off or he may be impressed and want to see more. Make sure your garden is looking good, make an effort and depending on the time of the year plant some shrubs or flowers. It’s also a good idea to paint the front door and windows if necessary and walls if they are painted or need painting.
Hall stairs and landing.
Hall stairs and landing is an area where the home owner will not be keen to do himself in my experience, and so if it looks really shabby then you will have to do something about it. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money you could just paint the ceiling and walls. My advice is to make good any damage to the walls and ceiling and apply 2 coats of brilliant white matt emulsion to the ceiling and 2 coats of magnolia matt emulsion to the walls. This will brighten up the hallway and look freshly done; it would be a good idea to update the lighting to make your hallway look its best.
Kitchen and bathroom.
It’s a well known fact that good kitchen and a good bathroom definitely help to sell a house. So it would be a good idea to get the decorator to give you a price on those two items, make sure to do them in light neutral colours and if the woodwork needs doing make it brilliant white.
Bedrooms
Now you can take a look at the bedrooms and see if they look fresh and smart, if they need decorating you could just do the walls and ceilings like you did with the hall stairs and landing, and keep costs down.
Tidy up and clear away
Now you need to tidy up and hideaway all the clutter that we all have, it will make a real difference to a potential buyer.
Now you have done all the hard work your house will look tip top and will be worth more than when you started, you also have greatly increased your chance of selling in this difficult climate.
