Viewing tip: paint it, clean it, fix it

A pot of paint and a weekend of work can make all the difference when it comes to selling your home.
Giving the property a lick of paint instantly improves the look of any home, touch up those dents in the skirting board and cover the old wallpaper you have wanted to change for the last few years.
Neutral colours offer the widest appeal, making your home look light and airy, as well as allowing viewers to picture themselves moving straight in with minimum fuss. They can apply their own stamp further down the line.
Now is also the time for those little jobs that have been in the deferral tray for years. Fix the garden shed, bleach the bathroom grouting, have the carpet cleaned, wax the wooden floors, give the garden bush a trim, cut the grass, wipe down the patio furniture.
Make a list of those little jobs and tick them off as your house sale gets ever closer.
