Presenting Your Property

There is an old saying in real estate: “You never get a second chance to make a good first impression.” You should have this axiom in mind when preparing your house for sale.

Right from the front gate you should ask yourself if there is anything you can do to improve the first impression. Selling your home is like selling a car. It is best to restore is as closely as possible to its original condition, or to give it a cosmetic makeover in order to attract a wider range of buyers to obtain a maximum price. This can be done by giving it a homely feel, creating space, bringing in light, making it sparkle, paying attention to the most important areas, adding fresh flowers and make it feel like home.

If you need more information on how to go about this, we will be more than happy to work with you and also offer practical advise and referrals.

We can recommend:

  • Gardeners
  • Cleaners
  • Tradespeople
  • Professional relocation companies who offer valet service and storage solutions
  • Professional stylists
