Someone Call A House Doctor

Placelift, the professional house-doctors, feature on Kickstart Your Business.

Looking at your home through the eyes of a potential buyer can be more than a little daunting. What we fondly think of as comfortable and lived-in can turn to cluttered and faded before our eyes. But knowing that something needs to be done to make our home someone else’s ‘desirable residence’ and knowing what to do and how to do it, is another matter.

Is There A Doctor In The House?

Enter Placelift, the professional ‘house doctors’ who specialise in preparing, presenting and styling residential properties for sale or let. Featured on this week’s Kickstart Your Business on Newstalk, they have only been in business for seven months, but are already making a name for themselves in the Wicklow, Bray and Greystones areas, helping home-owners to give their place a lift before potential buyers come calling.

Physician Heal Thyself

As Gerard noted during the show, the Placelift website and promotional flyers and brochure are attractive and well-designed but would really benefit from the same ‘de-cluttering’ that’s such a vital remedy in the house-doctor’s medicine bag. A jumble of information and promotions vie for the reader’s attention, reminding us that whether a space is virtual or physical, less is often more when it comes to that all-important first impression.

Over To You

How do you suggest that Clodagh and the team at Placelift make that great first impression on potential buyers? Listen back to the show on the Newstalk Kickstart Your Business blog and let us know what you think. We’d love to hear from you.
