It’s always a difficult thing to decide whether to fully decorate throughout or just do a tidy and repair the essentials when you’re thinking of selling or renting out your property. There are two distinct schools of thought here – firstly the expenditure on full decoration may not be got back in the asking price and these days buyers want to put their own stamp on a place. A tenant may also prefer to do a little light decorating to help make it feel more their home. Obviously any broken items need to be repaired as does any sign of damage to walls, ceilings, fixtures and fittings. It’s amazing how bad shape some properties are in when the vendors can’t be bothered.
An property agent with professional expertise in these matters will have all the answers and can give guidance where necessary. Their knowledge of construction, maintenance and buildings in general can be utterly invaluable.
