Selling you Home - Handy hint number 5. Repair, restore, revamp The devil is in the details, and the sale of your home could be hampered by simple little things that you've stopped paying attention to. Try to look at your home from the perspective of your buyer, and think about the details that would impress or dismay you if you were in their position. Then take care of those details immediately. Replace broken light bulbs Fix leaky taps Fix doors and drawers that don't open or close properly Repair cracks in the walls Touch up paint and repaint altogether where necessary (in a neutral colour) Hang up fresh towels in the bathroom Get a new shower curtain and bathmat (again, choose neutral shades) Get rid of that busy wallpaper that you loved five years ago. Remove it and then paint the walls - don't simply paint over it, as it will be obvious to your buyer and make the wallpaper difficult to remove Eradicate odours - particularly those from cigarette smoke, mildew and pets. Open the windows and air out your house. Simply masking bad smells with a perfumed air freshener won't do the trick Replace cushion covers, bedspreads and curtains that are worn or have garish colours and patterns
