Presenting your home


Before putting your property on the market, it is important to put in a bit of work to present your home in the best possible light for potential buyers. There is no need to spend money re-decorating, a good clean and tidy, along with maximising the available space and light will do the trick.



Here are some tips to consider before our photographers visit to capture your property:

  • Declutter your home, try to make it look as spacious and possible.

  • Clear the driveway of cars and bins

  • Clear the driveway of weeds and jet wash if possible 

  • Take down clothes liners 

  • Clear away pet bowls and accessories

  • Fully open curtains and blinds to maximise light 

  • Clean any mildew in bathrooms 

  • Ensure every room is clean and tidy, with the beds made 

  • Put away children’s toys if possible

  • Ensure all lights are working and broken lights bulbs are replaced

  • Mow the lawn


Tips for before viewings; Follow the advice above, in addition to:

  • Investing in some air fresheners, as bad smells are a big turn-off for potential buyers

  • Clean all windows

  • Warm hour home if viewing in winter months 

  • Turn off all televisions and computers

Very helpful and professional estate agents. They will go out of their way to try and help you and they always have the time to explain to you what's happening. Would definitely recommend!

Mell Cath

We recently sold our property through Arden Estate Agents, and having failed to sell through another local estate agent we tried Arden's after they were recommended to us, I am so glad we did, as they sold our house within a couple of days and kept us in the loop throughout the entire process. I would genuinely recommend them to anybody who wants to sell or buy a property.

John Reid

Exceptional. From meeting at the valuation to sales completion, Arden provided an honest, professional service throughout. Tony and Paul kept me updated with progress from finding a genuine purchaser to ensuring we experienced no unnecessary delays. I highly recommend them. My only regret I didn’t knock their door first. Exceptional.

How long will you market my property sale?

We will market your property for as long as it takes to sell. Along the way, it may be necessary to make changes to keep your property being advertised in the best light to get new buyers interested. You will only pay us once the property has been sold and the sale has exchanged.

What if I change my mind and want to pull out of my property purchase?

Both parties are allowed to pull out prior to exchange of contracts. However, following exchange of contracts, the opposing party is entitled to 'breach of contract' terms. Therefore, the seller would be able to retain a proportion of your deposit.
