Set the price right. If it’s too high it won’t sell. If it’s too low, you may get a quick sale but regret it. We will assist you in setting the right price.
Try to create a blank canvas for buyers as it will make it easier for them to picture what they can do with the house. If you decide that some of the rooms need a coat of paint, keep the colours neutral.
Create a good first impression. Ensure that the front garden is neat and tidy and that the front elevation of the house, at least, is well maintained – particularly the front door! A hanging basket or a plant by the front door can make a big difference to a buyers first impressions.
Tidy up! Clutter really does make a house look smaller. A tidy house has the feel of a much larger one. Think about any unnecessary furniture as well. If in doubt – get it out!
Ensure all rooms are fresh smelling. Homebuyers use all their senses when getting the ‘feel’ of your home. Clean all curtains and carpets to ensure freshness. There’s a lot of truth in the old idea of creating freshly baked bread and a pot of fresh coffee creating a sense of welcome and warmth for buyers. Fresh, fragrant flowers throughout the house create the same effect.
Have at the ready a portfolio of documents that any serious potential buyer may want to see. Electricity bills, gas bills, any guarantees of damp proofing or any evidence of remedial work etc.
Know who your perspective buyers might be and tailor the house to suit that market. For example, is your home more suited to professionals sharing or families etc.
Make sure that each room has one purpose and not several so that potential buyers can instantly recognise the identity of each room.
Ensure pets and all evidence of pets are out of view.
