Preparing your home for viewers is important. It will not only ensure your property is sold faster, but can potentially add thousands of pounds to its value.
There are many things you can do to speed up your sale and following these tips may help you along the way.
Firstly, make sure the outside of your property looks appealing to make an excellent first impression. A buyer usually has an instant judgment just by the appearance of a property. From this they can base their decision on buying the property.
Every room should be presented well to emphasise its purpose so the buyer can visualise how they would like each room to look. For example, an office or a kitchen would have a specific style and layout. In any room it would be important to have anything unnecessary taken away such as photos.
Space is an important factor for many which is why it is essential to make sure there is enough outdoor and indoor space. Less is sometimes more so try to keep things minimal with the furniture, colour scheme and even the garden to ensure there is enough space.
Amend and replace
Make sure you amend faulty appliances for example a broken shower head and replace any damaged furniture as it is likely that a buyer may notice it. This can be off-putting to many if it is not done. It would be a good idea to sort this out before selling.
Remember to pick a reliable buyer for example, someone who is able to buy the property at a set time arranged by you and they can pay the highest price. Therefore put reliable buyers at the forefront when making a decision.
Consider an appropriate price with the estate agent bearing in mind factors such as the area and street in which the property is situated. Try to also have a price that can be negotiated slightly in case the property has not been sold after a while. Moreover, house prices could be affected due to Brexit so you may want to discuss this with the estate agent.
