With the right types of property showcasing though, you can dramatically increase the appeal and see a rise in numbers of prospective buyers. The first thing to do as a homeowner is to go around the property and fix up any tiny details that might show on photos, virtual tours and physical viewings, such as cracked plaster, chipped paint on the walls, broken tiles on the wall, mouldy grout etc. Aside from that, if you can, neutralise the colours throughout the property, removing any truly bold colours that might put some people off. A neutral, warm and welcoming theme and colour throughout gives the impression of a blank canvas that a new owner can do whatever they wish with a property. Make sure the bedrooms and any other linen and furniture is clean and smooth, and that all clutter and excess piles of books, photos and other items are cleared away whenever photos are being taken or viewings taking place.
