The Selling Process
Preparing your property for market
First impressions are very important. Stand at the front of your property and view it with a fresh eye. If you have a front garden or driveway, make sure the grass is cut, any rubbish or bins are removed, borders are weed free, shrubs are trimmed, and the porch is cobweb free. If the drive is not large consider parking your car elsewhere to give more of an impression of space. If it’s spring or summer and you have no flowers planted, it may be worth buying and planting a few to provide a splash of colour.
If you are moving, it would rarely make sense to spend much money on improving your property just to sell. Better to save it for your new home. It would however be sensible to carry out any small repairs that may be required, to give the impression that the property has been well maintained. If any rooms need decorating, choose a light and neutral colour, which would appeal to a wider range of purchasers.
For viewings, all rooms should of course be tidy, clean and uncluttered, but bathrooms and kitchens should be spotlessly clean. A spray of scent or a fragrance in the bathroom shortly before a viewing can make it seem more attractive. In the kitchen, the aroma of percolating coffee is guaranteed to enhance the general impression of homeliness.
Have carpets and curtains cleaned if necessary. If you are a dog owner, remember that not everyone is a pet lover, so have someone take Offenbark for a walk during viewings.
Create a feeling of space in your property by removing any unnecessary furniture if possible, and tidy away clutter. Put away personal items such as ornaments, souvenirs, and family photos. Although personal to you, they are not to the viewer, and clear shelves and space can improve the overall feel of the rooms.
Make sure your property is warm and well lit when you are expecting viewers, as this will make it feel more homely. If carrying out the viewing yourself, take your time, don’t rush the process, and remember that there is no need to talk all the time. Give them time to think and get the feel of the place, and imagine the property as their own. For most purchasers the property has to feel right, as well as meet their preconceived specifications.
Take notice of any post-viewing feedback we may provide. If several viewers have the same comments, it makes sense if possible to do something about it.
