Low cost ways to give your property a makeover ready for selling

When it comes to selling your property, first impressions really count. The way your property looks, the condition that it is in and even just how neat and tidy it looks can all have an impact on whether or not someone puts an offer in.
However, there is a good chance that money may be tight and therefore as much as a makeover could help the sale of your property, the funds may not be there.

This lack of funds doesn’t mean that there is nothing you can do to make your property more attractive to prospective buyers; in fact, this guide shows you that there are plenty of low cost ways that you can transform your home and see the offers flood in.


The exterior of your property is the first thing that your viewers will see. Therefore, it is important to ensure that this looks its best. Clean the garden, mow the grass and make sure that the windows are sparkling clean. One step better, paint the front door and plant a few brightly coloured flowers too!

Tidy up

Sound obvious, but a spot of cleaning and de-cluttering can work wonders. A clearer room appears bigger and gives the viewer the chance to vision how it would look if they lived there.

Once the house is clear, it is time to give it a really good clean too. Steam those carpets, dust the surfaces and make sure that anything wooden shines.

A touch of paint

If you have enough time before viewings start, then you will find that a lick of pain can give your home a bit of a refresh. It is best to stick to neutral colours when you are trying to sell your as your favourite colour combinations might not be everyone’s cup of tea.


For those who do not have time to give your home a complete design overhaul then a few new accessories can have a similar impact.

Bathrooms benefit from a new toilet set or bath mat. Bedrooms come alive with a new rug and the living room will have a spruce up with some perfectly placed new cushions.
