Brilliant post as always, Lisa. Fab tips for home owners who want to sell!
If they roll up their sleeves, so that the house and garden is spic and span and uncluttered, some repairwork is done, they can even ask/get MORE for their property. Tip: put a nice red flower in the front garden; seems it attracts and pleases buyers. On the dinnertable and/or bathroom put an orchid, which you can keep for up to a few months. 😉
