Adding some personality to your home

Polished and Spotless…

  • Ensure that any minor repairs are sealed off and completed – consider repairing holes, broken door handles, ceiling cracks or broken tiles. Remember, many buyers want to move in without making any changes and ensure your property is ‘spotless’ to avoid any excuses for buyer to make lower offers.
