Preparing for an Open for Inspection? If you’re not sure where to begin, these tips will help get you started!

Crisp bedsheets
It goes without saying that all beds should be made and looking good before any inspection. If you think that your bedsheets could do with an upgrade, then you can pick up some great looking new sheets quite cost effectively online.

Pre-inspection cleaning
If you’re still living in the property during the sale, you may find yourself cleaning a lot. There’s no need to vacuum and dust every day but make sure that the property is looking good. Keep an eye out for dirty dishes in the sink, try to keep the laundry hampers empty, wipe down benchtops and mirrors in kitchens and bathrooms and any spot vacuuming prior to inspections.

Keep curtains and blinds open
Before every open for inspection, you’ll want to make sure to keep all of your blinds and curtains open to let in as much natural light as possible.

Make sure all of your lights work
If you don’t get a lot of natural light, make sure all of your lights are working.

Make your home smell nice
There’s nothing more off putting for potential buyers than bad smells. It’s a good idea to make sure you have plenty of air fresheners and aides to make your house smell nice. Try to avoid cooking any foods with a strong smell and make sure you stay on top of any pet odours throughout the sale campaign.
