Checklist

Externally –

  • Keep gardens and surrounds, neat and tidy
  • Ensure driveways, decking and paved areas are clean
  • Tidy and de-clutter garage
  • Clean guttering and repair if necessary
  • Repair any fencing or re-hinge gates if necessary
  • Complete all minor repairs – the little things do count

Internally –

  • Good lighting helps – open all window furnishings. Replace dead light globes.
  • Storage – give an impression of space – store away items that do not add to the ambience of a room.
  • Kitchen bench space – should remain uncluttered.
  • Windows – clean and repair where necessary.
  • Fixtures – bathrooms and kitchens are always a focus – repair grout or sealant if required. Repair any leaking taps.
  • Floors – steam clean carpets where necessary.
  • Paintwork – Ensure it is clean and looks neat.
  • Fresh air – nothing smells better! On warm days open windows and blinds and ensure there are no pet odours. Pets – not everyone loves them the way we do. During inspections remove them where possible.
  • Be aware of the weather - in hot weather have the air conditioning on. In cold weather turn the heaters on.
