When preparing your property for an ‘open for inspection’ it is often a good idea to arrange furniture so that people can move through the home with ease. Any small valuable items should be placed away securely (thefts are extremely rare and the agent will be keeping an eye on your property but small items are the most at risk of going missing).
On rainy days leave out extra doormats or towels for people to dry their feet on before entering your home. If you have flooring that could be easily damaged by dirt or high heels you should ask the agent to tell buyers to remove their shoes. Make sure all windows, curtains and blinds are open for maximum light and make sure you heat or cool the home where possible.
