When you’re preparing your home for sale it can be daunting to find the balance between your daily routine at home and presenting it in the best possible light for someone else to imagine life there.

This video series on staging your home features easy-to-follow tips that can make a big difference and could make selling your home the kind of story you’ll boast about to friends over dinner or a barbeque.

Staging the surrounds: make a good first impression

Key tip:

Ideally, your home needs to look ready to move into. You don’t want to create barriers in the mind of potential buyers. You may be used to peeling paint or overgrown gardens, but a potential buyer won’t want to inherit your to-do list. Fix small issues yourself and hire professionals where needed.

To do list:

  • Cut the trees back
  • Clear the pathways
  • Give the exterior a clean

Staging the kitchen: the small details that make a big difference

Key tip:

Pay particular attention to kitchen and bathroom fittings, give them a good clean and make sure they’re in working order.

To do list:

  1. Consider installing new light fixtures
  2. Replace old light switch covers
  3. Paint tired looking walls and skirting boards

Staging the bedrooms: create an (almost) blank canvas.

Key tip:

To do list:

  1. Store non-essential and personal items away in tubs and hide them away until open homes or viewings are complete.
  2. Keep décor consistent with a cohesive style and colour palette.
