Mow the lawn, prune plants and hedges and paint any faded window frames. Make sure your house number is clearly visible and that bins and recycling boxes are hidden. Plant some yellow flowers – sunny yellow is said by some to evoke a buying mood – and hire a pressure washer to blast paths and paving clean. Finally, stand outside your house and ask yourself whether, as a buyer, you would want to go inside. Does the house welcome you?
