Weed the garden - One of the first things a potential buyer will see when they arrive at your property is the garden. If the garden is ragged then it will be a bad start, and make the wrong first impression. Pick up litter, cut the lawn and pull / kill any weeds that are growing in or around the path or patio areas. Consider hiring a pressure washer to clean up your path if it's looking really grubby.
Clean out the loft - get rid of all the junk. - Some viewers will want to take a peek in the loft space. If it is cluttered to the brim with clutter that look likes it could well not be removed then this can be very off-putting. Also, a nice empty attic-space will look like it could have conversion potential.

Food For Thought
Buy And Refurbish In A Risky Market
I wonder how many individuals got trapped seriously in the downturn in the market, when they purchased a property at what appeared to be a give-away value, spent thousands of pounds improving it, in the vain chance of selling it on at a gain. A lot, I'm sure! The question is... is there yet cash to be made? How can the danger be minimized? When you spot a potential home, go get hold of a Barnstaple estate agent, or more than one, and pick up an professional view. How much is the home actually worth at present? How much will it be worth if it was made up to a pleasant state? Find a builder who is used to subbing out the numerous aspects of the renovation trade, and get a reasonable estimate for the reconstruction job. Now work out your potential income, and assess how dreadfully the market would have to to dip to wipe out that return, and land you in arrears. Now you will have a reasonable assessment of the danger. Don't forget... it's simple to begin going in excess of budget on the overhaul. Make allowances for this! These are just a few suggestions... not advice! Good luck!
When should I instruct a solicitor?
Some Barnstaple solicitors offer a "no sale, no fee" service so there is no risk in instructing such solicitors before you have agreed a sale or purchase. In fact, as a seller, it is better to start the process early so that paperwork etc can be prepared in readiness for a sale. As a buyer, you can also instruct a Barnstaple "no sale, no fee" solicitor as there is no risk in doing so. In fact, when you make an offer on a property, your position looks stronger if you have a solicitor already in place.
