Buying a property is without a doubt one of the most significant investments anyone can make. The recent instability in the property market has caused headaches for many buyers and sellers alike.

When trying to sell a house or apartment, regardless of the market, there are some guidelines that every real estate agent will emphasize:


The saying “the first impression is the one that stays” is undoubtedly true. What would you think of finding a house/apartment with messy beds and dirty bathrooms? When preparing your house/apartment for sale, you should stop and thoroughly look around in every corner. Make sure that the corners are free of cobwebs; ceiling fan blades have been cleaned, wall trim (especially chair rails) are free of dust. It is easy to ignore a few of these factors when you are at home on a day to day basis.


It is worth mentioning and remembering that you need to get rid of some of your collections and other details inside the house. It is important for potential buyers to imagine the house/apartment without furniture. Pack your collections, kids objects, and family photos and replace them with neutral art.

Also, remove some pieces of furniture that don’t match with the rest of the decor or are too big for space. Rooms will look more spacious, and potential buyers will have more room to move around.

Space is high on many prospective buyers list of priorities when viewing a property, and as such, it is important to maximise the space of each room. Removing unnecessary clutter and clearing floor space is key to this.


There is no need for you to worry where to put belongings such as furniture and personal objects while you are in the process of selling your house and showing your home.
