Please read our article to discover how decluttering, kerb appeal, fix and clean, light and airy and getting the smells right are so important to make your house more attractive to purchasers.

There are many things that could bring down property value. Many of them such as the local area, crime rates, transport links and schooling will be out of your control.

Try and view your property as a potential purchaser and remember that the first impression of a property is from the outside. Internally declutter to make it look as spacious as possible.
