    Published on 13 February 2019, Wednesday, 4:08 AM

    Ready to sell your house? If you've got the open home dates set, then it's probably time you got onto readying your property for potential buyers!

    Here's a few tips for sprucing up the inside of your home.

    Polish floors

    Get your floors looking shiny and new with a thorough cleaning! Polish concrete and timber surfaces with a professional floor polisher to give it an optimum finish.

    You can hire a floor polisher from your local Kennards Hire branch, with other floor cleaning products such as carpet cleaners also available.

    De-clutter and clean

    Hide away messy stacks of magazines, chipped china and stacks of laundry to create the best impression you can of your home.

    De-cluttering and cleaning is key to preparing for an open home, so pull on some gloves and get out your spray and wipe to rid your home of dirt, grime and dust.

    Any door, cupboard or drawer that can be opened during the inspection must be cleaned!

    Set the scene

    Make your home welcoming by putting a few features in place to set the tone, appealing to visitors' senses of sight, smell and sound.

    You might want to consider baking some fresh bread or brewing some coffee to let the aroma drift through the house, or putting out some French vanilla incense sticks.

    Playing some soothing music as guests walk through your home might also be a nice touch, as well as pulling out your very best quilts and cushions for the big day.
