🏡 Ensure that the property is clean and tidy daily whilst on the market and that the main living areas are clutter free and kept minimalistic.

🏡 Always ensure you have a floor plan in order to help your purchaser visualise the property they are buying.

🏡 Consider your target audience. Who is most likely to purchase your property? Look at ways of appealing to this specific group of people.

🏡 Compare the competition! Look at other similar properties for sale in the area. How does yours compare? Drive by take a look – be realistic about price. It is a price sensitive marketplace.

🏡 Consider the property from your buyer’s perspective. Think about their dominant buying motives and decide what are the strengths and weaknesses of the property.

🏡 Don’t forget the garden. A enchanting and enticing garden is important to many potential purchasers as it is viewed as an additional room that can be used for entertaining, dining as well as the more traditional uses, playing and enjoying.

🏡 Give your buyer time and space to look around. Work closely with your agent. They will call on your assistance if there are any queries that need to be addressed.

For most people their home is their biggest financial asset/investment. Think of it this way – the more time and effort put into getting it to look it’s best will be repaid when you receive an offer and agree a sale at an optimum price.

    Skin Conditions & Characteristics

    Did you know that certain skin conditions and characteristics are linked to your digestive health.

    If you are intolerant to certain types of drink or food, you might see certain parts of your face reacting to stress in the gut in a number of ways.

    Take a look – it’s fascinating.


    Lines and wrinkles on the forehead, sagging under the eyes, gaunt look to the face, painful pustular pimples all over the face, thinning of the skin, a grey/pasty white hue to the skin, thinner eyebrows.

    It can disrupt the bacteria in your gut triggering pimples.

    Face Mapping (an ancient idea that links parts of your face to organs in your body) indicates your digestive tract is linked to your forehead so you’ll see dry patches and pimples there.

    Spikes in insulin can put pressure on adrenal glands which in part control brow growth, so you can see thinning or sparse brows.


    Pronounced lines or redness between the eyes, droopy eyelids, enlarged pores, dehydrated skin with feathery lines across cheeks, reddish cheeks and nose, deep nasolabial folds.

    Alcohol is dehydrating which worsens lines and wrinkles.

    Face Mapping indicates the area between the brows is linked to liver health, so you can see more lines here.

    Alcohol can cause capillaries to dilate resulting in flushed cheeks.


    Puffy red cheeks, dark pigmentation patches or spots around chin.

    An increase in inflammatory reactions in your body, caused by gluten, can lead to bloated or flushed skin.

    If you react to gluten your immune system reacts which affects the reproductive balance, which can lead to hormonal pimples around the chin specifically.


    Swollen eyelids, bags and dark circles under eyes, small white spots and bumps on the chin.

    A common lactose intolerance can also affect the immune system leading to more inflammatory responses in the body. Just as a swollen ankle happens when you damage it, your eyes can become puffy and bags more pronounced.

    The estrogen and progesterone hormones in milk cause your skin cells to over-produce which block pores, bind with sebum and cause spots.

    Can you identify with any of the  characteristics?


    If you do, we help identify why!

    Is it a habit?

    Understanding what causes the reaction gives you to ability to deal with matters and promote inner harmony.
