    -Get rid of clutter! Box up what you don’t need, and put it into storage, or get rid of anything you no longer want. This will make your closets and rooms look bigger.                                                                -Fresh paint jobConsider painting to add value, and a “new” feeling to your home for a potential buyer. Neutral colours are usually best.

    -Remove personal photos. Buyers need to visualize themselves living in the home which is easlier for them with nothing too personal around.

    -Deep clean your kitchen and bathrooms. Buyers love the idea of appliances that are “like new”.

    -Curb appeal.  Trim any hedges, or flower baskets that may need a little attention. A groomed exterior adds to how well a home or building seems to be maintained.

    -Open blinds and curtains, and let some fresh air in! A dark room, or any strong aromas can make a home unappealing to a buyer.

    -Re-arrange the furniture.  Make spacious walkways, and best use of space in a room.
