A picture says a thousand words

It’s no secret that the better your property looks online to buyers, the better the chance of achieving a viewing which could just be the one that leads to a sale. A great home needs and deserves great photos. With the competition of buyers looking at hundreds of other Fulham homes for sale, it’s fundamental that your home stands out among the crowd. Having a great photographer goes without saying, but just as important are the adjustments that you can make to stage your home best for photos.

Reception & living rooms

In order to present your home in the best way for buyers, ensure that you: declutter, free up space, and if possible depersonalise rooms before photos are taken. It’s important to remember that buyers are picky and that one bad photo of your home could hinder the chances of a prospective viewing future sale.
To avoid this, make sure everything is clean, polished, and arranged well. Think chairs and tables straightened and if possible some flowers on show.
Open all blinds and curtains, and switch on the lights to make the room as bright as possible for the photos which will give it a spacious feel.

Kitchen

As with reception rooms, it goes without saying that you should ensure your home’s kitchen is carefully arranged to stage its assets best. Take the effort to clear worktops of all non-essential items that won’t show up well in photos, and where possible – polish any surfaces, clean the outside of ovens and microwaves and mop tiles where necessary.
Remove magnets and to do lists from the fridge, any washing up liquids, cutlery and crockery from around the sink, as well as any evidence of pets.
Again don’t underestimate the power of the addition of a bowl of fresh fruit or a vase of flowers to add both colour and a homely feel.

Bathrooms

A poorly presented, or dirty bathroom can be very off-putting for prospective buyers for your Fulham home. To avoid your bathroom appearing cluttered or uncared for, be sure to remove all hygiene products such as toothbrushes, razors, shampoos and gels from the shower and bath. Take out any bins, bathmats and laundry baskets and ensure that only a few towels are on show which match and are neatly arranged. Accentuate your bathroom by polishing the tiles, shower and mirrors to create a sparkling look. To give your bathroom extra character, add in some candles, exotic looking small plants and eye-catching stylish bottles.

Bedroom

Arguably the most important rooms in your Fulham home to get right for prospective buyers. Beautiful bedrooms can make up for less well-presented bathrooms and receptions (which may even require some work), yet a bad looking bedroom can have more weight in putting off buyers and decrease the chances of a sale. To get bedrooms looking great be sure to clear all floors and surfaces of any clothes, shoes or children’s toys. Remove any accessories and jewellery from bedside tables, clear any desks of documents and neatly arrange any books. Take the extra effort of using your best linen (ironed) and puffing up the pillows to ensure that your bed looks tidy and welcoming.
