How to Style Your Home for Sale

If you decide to style your property yourself, here’s a list of things you may wish to consider to improve the look and feel of your home:Research other properties in your area and price bracket to see how they have been presented. Do they seem overpriced or desirable?Clear any clutter, yet maintain a homely feel. You want your house to still feel like a home, however, removing unnecessary items can not only make rooms more appealing but can often help them appear larger.Touch up. Ensure that any marks or chips on walls are touched up before open day. A thorough clean is also needed to make your home feel more liveable. Wash soft furnishings or purchase some ‘on trend’ items to freshen living areas.
