The little things........

The little things............

THE small finishes usually date a home.

These includes:
  • Bathroom taps
  • The colour of the bathrooms tiles – painting tile white is a simple way to modernize a bathroom
  • Old or worn flooring should be replaced
  • Light fittings can tell a real story – replace ‘70s fittings with simple, modern fittings; wall paper can also date a home – floral wall paper must go; replace it with a fresh coat of white paint.
  • If you can afford it, modernize the built-in cupboards by replacing the doors and handles, this also improves the home’s “datedness”.

Top tips for selling quickly:

  • Paint the house but not the window frames or doors – this is not really expensive and gives the property a psychological lift.
  • Attend to carpets with a thorough deep clean and reseal flooring.
  • Steam – clean all upholstery to remove any unwelcome odours.
  • Hire a garden service a trim.
  • Fix doors and drawers that don’t close properly.
  • Remove all clutter, put away ornaments, excessive furniture, picture frames appliances and other loose items.
  • Remove posters from the walls.
  • A general spring – clean is a must for the whole property.
  • Check all ceilings for broken tiles, stains and water marks and repair them.
  • Clean the pool and sweep the veranda.
  • Clean gutters.  “All of these are musts for selling a property”.
  • Re-tilling bathrooms and kitchens if the tiles are more than 10 years old.
  • Marbelite and paint the pool if in a terrible condition.
  • Update lighting to low-voltage if not in place.
  • Re-varnish and paint garage doors.
