My clients constantly ask, what are the most important elements to address, when preparing our home for sale.
These are my Top Tips for that first “wow” impression:
Ensure the front garden and entrance is immaculate, as this is the first thing potential buyers see.
Declutter & pack away as many household items as possible.
Open the curtains and let in as much light as possible.
Kitchens and Bathrooms are the prime areas of interest for buyers. Make sure they are spotless.
If you have a pool, make sure its sparkling clean, with a fluffy beach towel draped over a comfy chair near by.
Place fresh flowers or foliage around the home.
Our core business is to help you declutter & maximise your property’s price. We help you prepare the home for sale, before the commencement of the marketing campaign.

All sorted out works with you to create a positive and enjoyable environment in your home.
When you sell your home, our unique concepts can help you to present your property with its best possible appeal to buyers.
We also take away much of the hassle that the “sales campaign’ can bring.
How does this work?
When we sell our home, it is important to look “through the eyes of the buyer”, who will know what is important to them. It helps the buyer to “visualize” bringing their own things to their potential new home by eliminating your ‘clutter’.
The decision to buy a home is a very emotional one. If the buyer can visualize their own possessions in the home, it is a big step towards capturing the emotional heartstrings of the purchaser. Buyers are probably inspecting a lot of properties, all in a short space of time. All sorted out will help you make it easy for buyers to imagine how your home can become their home
All sorted out can help achieve the best possible price for you home by organising the entire process of presenting the property in a favourable light for prospective buyers. If you don’t have the time, or the inclination, we will attend to everything, or if you do want to be “hands on”, we will manage the process with you.…
Following our recent blog about decor and storage, I thought you might like to see some of the storage items I have incorporated into my own home. When I mention storage to my clients it often has the connotation of plastic boxes stored in the garage with things never to be seen again. However you can see this is not the case, with a little imagination you can transform items taking up valuable space, into decorator and art pieces which are stored and enhance your home. I can work with you to achieve these features into your home decor, and release valuable space for other items.

For many people admitting to themselves they have a disorganised and messy home is a barrier to seeking help. Once they have come to the realisation that they will accept help they are then concerned about what their friends and family will think.
All sorted out is very sensitive to the privacy of our clients and we provide a professional and confidential service. Client details will never be disclosed to a third party.
Before we commence any service we provide a signed Confidentiality Agreement.

Many years ago, my mother in law was wondering what to do with all the memorabilia she was collecting and asked “what should she do with all this stuff ?” Our friend suggested starting up a Visual Diary. So, she purchased an A3 book with blank pages and sorted through her collection, pasting in the most valuable items and discarding the rest.
She has continued this process throughout the years, saving everything from childrens’ paintings, wedding invitations and funeral services. This is a great way to preserve family history, instead of it languishing in a bottom draw. Going through the books with her grandchildren on a rainy day has also been great entertainment, for all of them.
Trying to explain to my kids how a “a mullet haircut” from the 1980s could have been a popular look, is another thing.
This is just one example of the “family memorabilia” service offered by all sorted out.
Please contact us to arrange your family’s memorabilia so it keeps on keeping on.
The Easter break is a good time to catch up with some “me” chores. Organising your wardrobe for the coming winter is one thing you may find productive and enjoyable. Here are five tips for your wardrobe makeover. Label five heavy-duty garbage bags, or strong cardboard boxes:
- JUNK: – all unwanted articles to go to the tip
- OP SHOP OR FRIENDS – useful items you’ve grown bored with, but which other people might like, or which could be sold
- THINGS TO BE REPAIRED OR ALTERED
- THINGS TO SORT AND MOVE – useful articles that need to be moved elsewhere in your home
- TRANSITIONAL – – items you can’t quite let go of (keep for 6 months: if you miss them they can be reinstated, if not, get rid of them).
If you have other things to do in the Easter break, contact us and we will do the wardrobe makeover for you.

“I’ll never move again”, wailed a friend at her new abode when it looked like this photo, weeks after moving in.
Moving is a daunting task. The amount of “stuff” we accumulate is terrifying. If you literally don’t know where to begin contact us at ‘all sorted out’. Before the move we work with you to sort and cull whatever has taken over your cupboards and drawers. Within hours we will have things sorted in piles: keep & pack it – with a tag on it as to which room it should go to in the new location, sell it – to an auction house or on ebay, move it to grandma’s garage temporarily, give it to charity or skip-bin it. This way you only move what you need, dispensing with the excess stuff that shouldn’t move with you. We will inspire you and have you up and organised in no time.
We assist you to move seamlessly into the new home by helping decide where to place furniture so a great floor plan is created with a place for everything, without it being everywhere. Moving or just wanting to get organised at home, you’re welcome to contact all sorted out on 0438291568

Consequently, this can be achieved with simple interior changes that enhance your property. The Lifestyle Channel has offered up Selling Houses Australia, following in the footsteps of it’s widely popular British counterpart.
Property expert Andrew Winter and his team, transform tragic spaces and the classic real estate no-go’s (such as living pretty much on top of a train line!) into peaceful, functional and relaxing spaces that give a stylized glimps into the aesthetically pleasing life one could live if only one owned such a space. Whatever type of property, if you’re thinking of selling in the current market you must be equipped with the right tools to get your prospective buyer not only liking but wanting to buy your property.
Here are 10 top tips to help you achieve this goal
- Cull all cluttered surfaces. Less is often more when it comes to photo frames and memorabilia
- Stop putting things off. Re grout the bathroom tiles and get rid of any traces of mould. The bathroom must be absolutely sparkling
- Keep family photos to a minimum
- If you have pets, ship them off to friends during the inspection period
- Oil all wooden surfaces and give floorboards a decent polish
- Fresh flowers and fruit fill the house with terrific fragrances, but don’t go overboard with elaborate arrangements
- Do not leave small, valuable items on display.
