Having already read our previous blog posts ‘The 1 Month Rule’ and ‘Top 10 Real Estate Pre-Sale Tips –Tip 1’, you are no doubt getting the hang of this by now!

This week we cover the 2nd of our ‘Top 10’ Pre-Sale Tips and explain why we think it is so important. This week, the focus is on windows and how to treat them.
Once again, as with the ‘1 Month Rule’ and our painting tips in ‘Top 10 Real Estate Pre-Sale Tips – Tip 1’, understanding these preparation concepts will help you make a start in truly presenting your property for sale in the best possible fashion, which in turn will make a big difference to how long your property takes to sell and ultimately the price you are able to achieve.
