Research shows that doing things like taking down family photos, removing a lounge door and even parking an expensive car outside your house, can, according to agents add £2,500 to your home’s value when selling!
This also gives sellers something tangible to do when selling a home.
Some 95% of agents say de-cluttering helps your home sell while 38% “insist it increases the sale price ‘every time’. And it’s not a small amount we are talking about either, but potentially over £4,500 more.
Other ways to add value:-
Baking bread or putting coffee adds over £800
Strategically placed mirrors add (£947)
Removing a door (£930)
Taking down family photos (£921)
Removing furniture or bulky items (£836)
It is however essential to make sure your property is de-cluttered BEFORE you get the agents in.
Why? Because to sell your home for the most money, you want as many offers as possible, to get this your property needs to look fantastic on the photos your agent will be putting on-line.

"Very Efficient, very quick sale and very straightforward sale. The staff were all very pleasant and seemed on the ball and were always on time with viewings. One small delay with the photographer showing up late but I understand this was a temp photographer as their regular guy was on holiday. Everyone seemed well experienced with no young kids telling you what they think you want to hear. The property sold within about 3 weeks with the one serious buyer identified quickly and since we were not inundated with offers it suggests the valuation was spot on. Would happily recommend Anthony Webb to both buyers and sellers."
