Set the setting for a successful open for inspection with these helpful tips.

  • Ensure your pets are taken offsite so that they won’t annoy visitors
  • Attend to any little maintenance jobs such as sticking doors or dripping taps
  • A general spring clean will freshen the look and the air; don’t forget to wash the windows inside and out
  • Ensure your kitchen is spotless and the working areas are uncluttered
  • The delicious aroma of brewing coffee or freshly baked muffins will convey the impression that your home is there to be enjoyed
  • Bathrooms and toilets should be gleaming, while scented soaps add a nice touch
  • Make sure wardrobes are tidied to highlight a sense of space
  • Mirrors in smaller rooms can also convey a feeling of spaciousness
  • Place fresh flowers through your home
  • Interesting books or artwork in feature areas can encourage visitors to linger
