Property presentation is one of the most important aspects of selling a home. We spend plenty of time and money on our homes so we will naturally expect to receive a great price in return for the effort we’ve put in. In the right circumstances and with the right approach taken to your sale, it should be possible for you to get what you’re looking for.
If you are someone who intends to put your property on the market expecting to learn from the experience, you’re probably not ready to consider selling your house. Preparing for the sale is of the utmost importance if you want to get the best deal.
You wouldn’t sell anything else without ensuring it was in the best possible condition and the same goes for your home. You will need to make sure your prospected buyer is connected with your home in some way so that they are so keen they might be ready to part with a little more than their budget.
They also need to get an idea of how the property will suit their lifestyle, their family and their future. It doesn’t all come down to creating the idyllic homely environment that makes it irresistible. Here are some top tips for selling your home quickly in the modern market at the very best deal…
Landscaping contributes to the overall presentation of your home and proves to be a hugely important aspect of selling a property. You should look to transform the exterior look and feel of your home in order to inflate the price. You can do it yourself or hire a landscaper to come in and do it for you.
The Front Door
The centrepiece of your home on the outside is often the front door, so make sure this is as attractive as possible with a new coat of paint should its condition be deteriorating. Change any outside lights and decorate with potted plants either side of the door.
Lighting is absolutely essential as you don’t want your home feeling dark and enclosed when potential buyers arrive for their first tour. Brighter, modern lighting is capable of enhancing the spaciousness of your property and this makes it far more attractive to buyers.
Avoid Major Overhauls
Major overhauls are not necessary as the character of your property needs to be maintained in many cases. However, if there is any aspect or specific feature of a room, whether that’s a tap in the bathroom or doorknobs in the bedroom, that require updating, go ahead and make sure this is done before the first viewing.
Pets can put pull people in as much as they put people off, but with viewers having a vast array of opinions and preferences, it’s important to remember that some may be allergic or generally not fond of animals. Ideally pets should be out of the house on the day of viewing as they can distract buyers or leave them feeling uncomfortable.
