PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR SALE

Never Underestimate the Power of Elbow Grease

If your home is sparkling, fresh and smells good to walk into it is instantly appealing. Clean, clean and clean again!!  

Kitchen

Clear your benchtops and sink.  Clean the oven.  Clean the windows, clean the light fittings, Wipe the spots off the walls.  Wipe around the light switches.  Wipe the fridge. Never underestimate the value of elbow grease!

Lounge/Living

Take a good look at the furniture arrangement.  Just because it has always been like that doesn’t mean it is the best way.  If there is too much furniture, remove some of it.  People buy space.  They don’t want to feel jammed in or cluttered. If the couch is looking a little worn, add some colourful cushions and a throw.  This will divert the eye away from the worn patches.

Windows

If the curtains or blinds are worn out, take them down.  Clean, sparkling windows with no covers look better than worn out dirty drapes or broken blinds. 

Bathrooms and Toilets

Keep the bathrooms and toilets fresh. Your towels are often the focal point in the bathroom. Make sure they are clean and nicely folded.  The difference is huge.

In the Bedrooms

The beds and bed coverings are the focus of the room.  Make them look inviting.  Make the beds properly.  Ensure they are smooth.  Plump up the pillows.  Invest in a colourful throw and cushions. Tidy the wardrobes so that it looks as if there is plenty of room for storage.  Keep the bedside tabletops clear.  

ACCESSORIES 

It is the accessories that make the difference between an ordinary room and one with the WOW factor. Usually one or two large pieces will look better than lots of small items. If you do have small items, group them together by colour or style so they are presented as a unit.

Black Cat Interiors - Garden Clean Up

Monday, 08 April 2013 14:14

The garden is the first thing prospective purchasers see when they come to view your house.  If they don’t like the look of it then it may be the only thing they see as they move on to the next property.

With the busy lives we lead we sometimes just don’t have time to keep the garden in the condition we would like it to be.  Or it may be that you are helping your parents get their house ready for sale.  Suddenly you are faced with cleaning the house, tidying the garage, de-cluttering and presenting everything at its best and then…. there is the garden!!

We can help.  Our landscapers and gardeners can spruce up the garden very quickly and at a very reasonable cost.

Talk to us about a free quote.

Note:  We can also arrange builders, cleaners and other tradespeople if required.
