You may consider storage or filling your loft.

Furniture: Cut down the pieces in your living areas so your house flows with space to show people round.

Entrance: Clear out any shoes, coats, umbrellas and other outdoor items.

Equipment: Put exercise equipment in the garage or storage.

Bookshelves: Edit your shelves so that you have a neat, orderly space with books and perhaps a few decorative items. Don't have overflowing, sagging shelving units weighing you down.

Reading materials: Recycle old newspapers and magazines clogging up your coffee tables.

Photos: Take down any personal photos. Buyers need to imagine pictures of their own family on the walls, tables and shelves. Just a few pictures around the house.

Cables: Organize the cables for your televisions, HiFis, computers, and other electronics so that they're not hanging out all over the place.

Plants: Toss sickly looking plants and keep only a few healthy ones on display.

Kitchen work tops: Remove everything from your kitchen worktops, keeping only essentials like a toaster and microwave. Decorate sparingly—buyers need to envision the kitchen without your stuff all over the counters. Clear magnets, coupons and children's artwork from the fridge.

Bedrooms: Make sure the beds are made and the floors are clear.

Wardrobes: Organise them so they aren't overflowing with clothes.

Bathrooms: Put all toiletries and medications in a cabinet while your house is being shown. Spruce your bathrooms up with fresh soaps and towels.
