Preparing Your Home For Auction

By Lachelle Ferguson

Maximising the sale price at auction can be enhanced if you take the time to prepare your property by following six key steps.

Create a warm environment that doesn’t give too much away so that the potential buyer can envision themselves living in the space.
De-clutter and de-personalise the home by removing any family photographs or certificates.

Consider engaging a stylist to redecorate the home. A few extra throws, pillows and plants will make pops of colours, signature style and introduce a new sassiness to your space.


Logical floor plans attract a broader depth of buyers. While you may not be able to change structural features such as a wall in time to sell your home, you can enhance the floor plan by making sure all passageways and entrances remain clear. To open a smaller space without overstyling, select a statement rug or throw that acts as a centrepiece and will be something to remember or something to talk about.

Invest in giving the home a fresh lick of paint. Neutral tones are safe, light, will help to open a space and will appeal to a broader market.

Cleaning your windows provides an easy, cost-effective opportunity for viewers to see the outside world. It instantly opens the space and gives your home a fresh glow.

Green foliage introduces light and life to your garden. Cover garden beds with mulch or bark and plant hardy green foliage plants. Another way of enhancing the look of the garden is to paint the fences in dark paint. The darker colour brings out the green foliage or colours of the flowers. This simple, cost-effective method makes almost every garden look great!
