The decision to buy a home is often a very emotional one, so you can do plenty to make your property as appealing as possible for viewings! Try these tips to secure a sale fast.
1. Focus on the first impression
That first impression really is vital, as your potential buyers will get an immediate sense of your home and space, and then spend the rest of the viewing justifying their initial conclusions to themselves! Look at your house as a visitor would and smarten up the paint, the front garden, the hallway and porch.
2. Check the bathroom
Your bathroom must be fresh and welcoming, so ensure it is sparkling clean and free from odours. The same goes from the kitchen – unless, of course, you are providing a beautiful smell of coffee and freshly baked bread. Interestingly, research suggests that this tactic really does work, so your buyers will be researching conveyancing solicitors Guildford wide in no time!
3. Give a sense of light and space
Buyers are invariably looking for more space (unless they are downsizing) and they will want properties with plenty of natural light. Use bright colours, reflective surfaces and lightly dressed windows to achieve this, and remove clutter and dirt to maximise visual flow. Furniture on legs also helps to create a sense of light and space in a room too!
4. Remove pets
Yes your pet is beloved, but it’s personal to your family and some viewers will be allergic to cat or dog hair, or simply not keen on the presence of a four-legged friend. Make the necessary arrangements before a viewing and keep your beloved pet well out of sight.
5. Style it out
Great styling does make a difference, so add light, bright and neutral colours, wall art, great lighting and decorative elements after you have removed all of the clutter and personalised items. This will help to dress and showcase your home for maximum effect.
