- Prepare your property

Before putting your home on the market, you may need to spend a bit of money getting it ready. Properties that are presented without any glaring problems (such as cupboards coming off hinges, doors that won’t shut, wobbly and broken paving stones) are more likely to catch a buyer’s eye.

The better your home looks before it’s marketed for sale, the more interest you’re likely to get when it’s on the market. Clear away clutter (kids’ toys, heaving bookshelves and the like) and keep décor neutral. That way, buyers can really get a feel for your property.
