  • Building Energy Rating Certificate (BER)

It is a legal requirement that all properties offered for sale has a current BER certificate. If you bought the house recently this document may be with the deeds but if not, you would need to commission one.  BER certificates last 10 years. Buyers are now making more conscious choices seeking environmentally friendly and cost- effective heating. The BER Certificates is accompanied by an Advisory Report.

This report sets out how the property could improve its energy efficiency. There are common recommendations such as upgrading the boiler, insulating hot water cylinder, using energy efficient LED bulbs etc.

  • Presentation

The initial impression that your home makes is long lasting. The kerb appeal can be the deciding factor.

Paint your property

Tidy the garden – those weeds need to be pulled!

If your home looks dull consider some landscaping to spruce things up – flowers, a tree and a well-maintained lawn provide a positive impact

Stage your home. Small touches such as placing flowers on the hall table or dressing it with a lamp creates a warm homely feeling.

  • De – Clutter and De-Personalise

Potential purchasers need to imagine themselves living in your house.  Disguise and minimise personal possessions. Showcase your property in the best light possible.

Clear all countertops, surface space and floor space to allow any potential purchasers know how much space is available.

 ‘Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today’
