First Impressions Count
When it comes to marketing your property, pictures really do say a thousand words.
On the day of the photoshoot
In particular, we recommend the following:
Clean and tidy throughout
Pet accessories are a ‘no’
Please remember, not all viewers love cats and dogs, so take time to remove any reference to your own pets. Dog beds, cat litter trays, and Fido’s smelly old bone will not help sell your property to a non-dog/cat lover!
Consider some fresh flowers and fruit
Clear away kitchen clutter
Bring ‘hotel chic’ to your bedrooms
Don’t forget outside
Ensure that balcony/terrace doors can be opened to get the best shots possible, and then take a critical look at the gardens and frontage of the property. Mow the lawn, put away gardening equipment, sweep up leaves, and ensure all garden furniture is clean and arranged neatly. Remove the barbeque cover, install some pots or hanging baskets, and clean and tidy. And don’t forget the front door! As the first thing viewers see, it is important to clean away spider webs and road dust.
Remove all cars from the driveway
Hide the bins
Remember to move refuse bins, wheelie bins and recycling bins all well out of the way.
