If you are thinking of selling your home and preparing it for viewings you might be wondering what you can do to show off your home to maximum potential. We work with our sellers to help them every step of the way, and suggest the following items are considered prior to the property being photographed and viewings arranged:
1. Lots of potential buyers will conduct their own “drive by” viewing before booking an appointment. Venture outside and take a look at what you could do to improve the general appeal of your property. You’d be surprised by how effective simple actions such as mowing the lawn, trimming hedges and clearing up any debris will be.
2. Buyers want to see the potential of your home, and the space available, so they can imagine themselves living in your home. Declutter rooms and consider how buyers might respond to any “out there” décor and personal effects which may be spread across the property.
3. The key rooms in any property are the bathrooms, toilets and kitchens. These have a big influence in how people perceive the house, and eventually how many offers you receive.
Remember how it felt when you first looked at your property, and what you were assessing it for… think about what you look for in the home and work towards that for your potential buyers.
Selling your house is a big task, but if you do it right, it will work in your favour when you locate your dream home.
