The importance of de-cluttering your home

When you decide to sell your home the presentation of a property is vital to making that all important first impression to potential buyers. When I say first impression, I don’t mean when hopefully a potential buyer makes an appointment to view, I mean when a buyer first sees a picture of your home amongst lots of other similar properties online.Happy young couple walking into their new house

I’ve been saying for some time now that in my opinion how the property is presented for the photographs is becoming the most important factor for selling your home at a good price. Why is this? This is because without making your property stand out on websites like Rightmove and OntheMarket.com buyers may never give you the opportunity to make a great first impression in person, by declining to make a viewing appointment in the first place.

De-cluttering rooms as we know is key in making a property appear more appealing. This is because the rooms feel bigger, lighter and more inviting. There is also less chance of offending potential buyers! The masters of presenting properties for sale are of course the new homes developers many of whom are large national home builders who have large resources at their disposal. Nobody is suggesting going out and painting the house magnolia throughout but with some clever thought and sticking to the principal of less is more, your property will attract more interest online and therefore more requests for viewings.
