Tidy up your kid's tip.
They'll have it spick and span faster than you can say "Kim and Aggie".
According to a survey of more than 1,000 adults by mortgage provider ING Direct, two out of ?ve prospective buyers said they would be put off a property if it had an untidy boy or girl's bedroom.
Many said they would actually use it as leverage to negotiate a lower price for a house.
Traces of pets, smelly bathrooms, overgrown lawns and grubby kitchens also had a detrimental effect on buyers' impressions of a house, said the report.
ING Direct chief executive Richard Doe said: "Parents aiming to sell their home should bear in mind the impact an untidy kid's room could have on any offers.
"Even if the mess doesn't completely dissuade a buyer, it seems that it certainly impacts on the price they'd be willing to pay, so kids keeping their rooms spick and span could really pay off," he added.
