Talking on Steph's Packed Lunch recently, Scarlette revealed that "cleanliness, cluttering and space" are essential for selling your house. She said: "Starting with cleanliness.

Scarlett revealed that a dirty house could cost you money: "61 per cent of people said that they would offer a lower amount [of money] if the house was dirty when they went into it."

The One Show presenter then went on to advise viewers to declutter their houses to give a "neater" and "more spacious" look.

Scarlette says cleanliness is key to selling your home

"So, how can you give the illusion of your house being bigger? We can do things like putting big mirrors up on the wall, maybe above the fireplace or a couch. It tricks the eye into thinking that the house is twice as big. Also getting rid of big furniture, anything that is a bit too chunky."
