MARK’S TIP: If you’re developing to resell (or for that matter, for high end rentals), I’d recommend installing dimmer switches in areas such as corridors, kitchens and stairs. No one likes harsh over-head lighting, so dimmers will allow you to create a really luxurious ambiance for viewings, especially in the evening. Buyers will remember little touches like this and these will set your property apart from the competition… all for the price of an extra £20 quid or so.

Also, ONLY agree viewings at a time that shows off your property to it’s absolute best. For example, if you are north facing, the last thing you want to do is have viewings in the morning. It’ll make the property feel dark, cold and uninviting.
