Strathfield Scene 15 PROPERTY www.ourstrathfield.com.au 15 TIPS FOR SPRING SALE SUCCESS By Sue Kropp ■ Unclutter rooms, make them feel as big and open as possible. ■ Ensure you have a new front door mat, frst impressions count. ■ If you are selling a smaller apartment or terrace house, use big mirrors to promote a feeling of space. ■ Keep to neutral colours for main areas such as foors, walls and lounges. Buyers’ decisions can be determined by colour. ■ Accessorise with light fresh colours, soft pinks, light blues and mauves to give a soft fresh feeling. ■ If your room or lounge is looking a little tired invest in new scatter cushions – it’s a cheap and effective way of revamping a room. ■ Minimise accessories, keep it simple. If you have collections, pack them away. ■ Fresh spring fowers such as tulips and peonies always look great. ■ Use potted plants to bring the feeling of the outside in. ■ Burn lightly fragrant candles before and even during the open house, but not too strong a fragrance as this can have the opposite effect. ■ Invest in furniture that can double as storage, the more storage the better. ■ Keep blinds and curtains open (as long as the outlook in desirable), let in as much light as possible. ■ Towels can be a great way to add a touch of colour to a plain white or older bathroom. Minimise products such as shampoos in the shower and declutter vanity areas. ■ Attention to detail is essential: a lot of small things add up to a great impression. Ensure windows are clean, grout is bleached and the house is dust-free, and rugs and curtains are clean. ■ Kitchen benchtops always need uncluttering. Hide appliances and get a lovely bowl or platter flled with limes, oranges, lemons or apples for a splash of colour, but use only one variety for maximum impact. Fresh potted herbs on a kitchen window sill can also look great.
