Attracting Your Buyer-Tips
Here are some tips to help you get your home ready for buyers. More often than not, a well presented home will sell quicker, and for a better price.
Pound for pound, a fresh coat of paint is likely to give the biggest improvement in saleability and price achieved against asking price. Even if it doesn't increase your asking price by £10,000s, it will almost certainly result in an offer closer to your asking price than if your property's decoration looks tired, and aged.
De-clutter, De-clutter, De-Clutter
So important we said it thrice! Removing unnecessary items for a room can create the extra feeling of space and light that is important to most buyers. Also, a de-cluttered home will help the buyer mentally "move in" with their own belongings, and that's one step closer to them making you an offer!
Make sure the washing up is done, the ironing is put away (or hidden in a cupboard if you are short of time), and that the dogs, if you have them, are out of the house. Remember, you love your pet but a buyer may not. Clear all unnecessary objects from the kitchen countertops. If it hasn't been used for three months…put it away! Clear refrigerator fronts of messages, magnets, pictures, etc. If you are short of time, then try to ensure the first room the buyers walk into is tidy, well presented, and inviting. You don't get a second chance to make a first impression to a viewer, and they have often decided if the house "feels" right for them within the first two minutes.
What draws the eye?
After you have done your tidying and de-cluttering, try walking out of the room and then back in and see if anything untoward catches your eye. If it does, remove it from the room.
Brighten things up! Some people may like to live in dark houses but most buyers will want light. Make sure the curtains are wide open, and if there are any dark corners then make sure you have lamps to light them.
The main photograph of your property's sales details will, most likely, be the front of the house. Ensure the front is well presented, and remove all cars from the driveway when the external photo is taken.
...try to look at your house "through a buyer's eyes," as though you've never seen it before. This exercise will help you see what needs to be done. Any time and money invested on the areas listed above will usually bring you the return of a better offer and a quicker sale.
