POST OFFICE MONEY'S TOP TIPS FOR HOUSE SELLERS :

    1. First impressions are key, so make sure the property looks well-maintained and cared for from the outside.
    1. Anything too personalised can be a turn-off, so keeping colours neutral can help.
  • 3. Clear your garden of any litter and make sure the lawn is mowed, leaves are raked away, weeds are removed and overgrown trees are cut back.

  • 4. Giving your kitchen a quick freshen-up is a cost-effective way to improve the appearance of your home.
