It is only natural for vendors to seek all the help they can get when selling. Local estate agents are leaned on now more than ever before. However, it is often the most straightforward and simple things that need to be taken care of rather than the use of attractive colours and smells as some would have us believe.
One of the most important aspects for any property on the market is the entrance hall. Other than the outside of your home, this is the first opportunity a buyer has to assess the property and should therefore be one of the first considerations for the seller when presenting the home to prospective buyers.
All too often, it is an area that can be overlooked, certainly when the property is still being lived in and shows the wear and tear of people coming and going. This is particularly the case if it is a family home with young children, pets and all the belongings they come with. There are simple steps that can be taken to improve the impact of the first impression. As with other areas of your house, brightening up a hallway with a fresh lick of warm and bright paint can help. Adding a well positioned mirror can create space and light too.
Most importantly, remove the area of any unnecessary clutter. For those with children, this includes storing away shoes, scooters, bikes and whatever else is usually disposed of at the front door. A confident agent will be able to give you some pointers here.
