Are you selling a property that is empty of furniture? The most important element at this time of year is lighting. I once had a meeting in the late afternoon where we had to walk around with the torch on our mobile phones to light the house in some of the rooms where there was no overhead lighting. Unsurprisingly the client was not taken with the house, and decided against letting it as she did not have faith that the landlord would upkeep the house to the standard she was looking for. She could not understand why there was no lighting…. and I had to agree.
Use a variety of lighting to create an atmospheric feel, from table lamps, standard lighting & pendant lighting, which will all work together to create a welcoming feel. First impressions count.
