The NAEA has issued some top tips for making a home more desirable to potential buyers. Presentation is vital as well as considering an extension to add value to the property. Making a sensible valuation, ensuring a home is energy efficient and marketing it properly are all also crucial for success.
Recent research from Post Office Mortgages also revealed which property fads should be avoided by those looking to sell. The Post Office Mortgages research unveils artex walls, avocado bathrooms and woodchip walls as the worst interior design fads of the past 30 years, with a built-in bar, mock fireplaces and animal print rugs rated the worst furniture fads.
The Mortgages research also highlighted that under-34s are the most willing to see past dodgy DIY and interior design faux-pas in order to bag a bargain.
