Some guidance as to the 'look' and 'feel' that you need to create when looking to sell your house or flat.
The BBC recently published some guidance as to the ‘look' and 'feel’ that you need to create when looking to sell your house or flat. This certainly applies to houses and flats for sale in Sheffield, particularly as we here at Belvoir! Sheffield have seen the market pick up substantially throughout 2013.
Some handy tips....
Paint walls - a pale, plain shade maximises the feeling of light and space and enables buyers to imagine their possessions in the property. Research shows that most buyers prefer natural, earthy colours to bright, bold shades. Although there's a wide range of paint colours available, magnolia is still the top-selling colour.
To prevent rooms looking too bland, use strong colours for accent walls or cushions and accessories.
De-personalise your rooms by removing personal items, such as family photographs and children's drawings, which may distract potential buyers. Buyers should be looking at the property not the owner's possessions, so hide these items until the property is sold. Removing clutter also makes it easier for buyers to imagine their own belongings in a room
Plant pots can provide colour in your garden. If you don't have the time to fill your own, you can always get some ready-made.
Flowers and a bowl of fruit will brighten up a room and provide a pleasant smell.
Organise rooms - a property will be more appealing if rooms have a specific purpose and this allows buyers to see the full potential of the property.
Revitalise a bathroom with a green leafy plant and new taps, shower curtain and light pull. All these items can be picked up cheaply from DIY warehouses.
Coloured bathroom suites are out and old-fashioned white is back in vogue. If you've got an avocado or pink bathroom, consider investing in a white suite. It will add value to your property.
Restoring fireplaces and period features, such as ceiling roses and cornices, can add thousands of pounds to a property. If you don't have a fireplace then a striking picture can work equally well. If you decide to install a fireplace, look for an original period grate and surround in reclamation yards.
