With fewer homes coming on to estate agents’ books than there are eager buyers ready to snap them up, the St Albans area is currently a sellers’ hotspot. But if you are hoping to achieve the best price for your property it is still worth doing all you can to make your house sale-ready. Here are some inexpensive ways to do just that...
* De-clutter by boxing up your nicknacks ready for your new home.
* Re-organise your rooms to make the best use of space and put bulkier items into store while you show your property.
* Tidy the garden and add colourful pot plants if necessary. You can take them with you when you go.
* Spruce the place up with a thorough deep clean, particularly the kitchen and bathroom. And de-odourize.
* Encourage more light in by hanging mirrors.
* Eliminate strong colours and go for a neutral scheme if possible. Magnolia has had its day but white is in.
