With the web powering ever-expanding choice in the property market, the next property is only a click away – so it’s more important than ever to make a good first impression.
Small details that aren’t noticeable once you’ve lived somewhere for a while can very easily put potential buyers off before they even look at the price.
When it comes to selling your property, an estate agents is usually your first port of call, but they can only work with what you give them. The quickest way to lose your custom is for them to be critical of how you’ve presented your home – even if you weren’t aware there were aspects that could put people off.
An estate agent commission gives you a platform to advertise your property – subscriptions to Rightmove and Zoopla cost a fortune, but that’s where most people start their search, and you have to stand out from the crowd to attract the right kind of attention.
If the way you’ve presented your home isn’t attracting viewers and therefore isn’t selling your property the easiest solution is to drop the price. Though of course they vary a lot, it is always the seller who will feel the loss much more than any agent.
Selling a lifestyle, not the way you live will enable people to imagine themselves aspiring to live in your home. It can often be difficult to separate yourself from it and the way you currently live seeing it as others do.
By presenting your property in the right way, and to the right market, you can attract more viewings and achieve a higher price or quicker sale as a result.
