Buyers tend to make up their minds about a property within 30 seconds, so make sure the front garden is free of weeds and leaves, keep hedges trimmed and paving and pathways swept. Line up bins tidily or, if you have a bin store, use it.
Consider giving the front door a lick of paint if necessary, and polish door furniture. A couple of plants in pots can really make a home look more loved. If you have off-street parking space, remove your car so that prospective buyers can feel the benefit of it for themselves when they arrive.
We recommend paying close attention to the hallway, unless your house is extremely grand, remove coats and pictures from the entrance hall and corridors, as they make them feel dark and narrow, put up a mirror instead to bounce light about.
