Expert advice

The golden rules for uploading a listing

● Always upload an image – or, preferably, as many as you can from multiple angles. Buyers will appreciate the honesty, plus it makes it less likely they will claim an item was not as described. Photograph the item in a light, bright location and make sure it’s not blurry.

● Describe the item in as much detail as you can muster. If it helps, use the following subheadings: size, brand, condition, colour and style.

● Write a simple, informative subject line. Think about what you would search for if you wanted to find the item; usually a combo of the subheads listed above, plus buying acronyms if desired. use the most obvious terms – eg, dress not gown.

● Spellcheck every word of your listing, as buyers won’t be able to find your item if it’s wrongly spelled.

Steph and Abbi on the HomeStyle team have completely demystified the dark arts of DIY on page 61, from tool box starter kits and tiling masterclasses to solving your worst decorating disasters. For those DIY-ing to add value to your home, flip to page 80, where we’ve brought a whole new meaning to packing on the pounds – you’ll be totally amazed by how easily (and cheaply) you can send your asking price through the roof. Elsewhere, cook up a storm with frozen produce (p. 72), read our ultimate guide to wooden flooring (p. 96) and explore the many different ways you can upcycle and embellish junk shop finds with Juliet and Amanda on page 83.
