First Impressions Will Sell Property Fast!
First impressions count, buyers will have already formed an impression before they step into your property. A well-kept garden, pathway and fence, plus a freshly painted front door are immediately appealing, whereas a scruffy outdoor space with a litter bin outside the front door may turn many prospective buyers away.
De-clutter - don't underestimate the appeal of a tidy property. Throw out the junk - use moving as a good excuse to get rid of old, unwanted and unused items.
Clean - dust and clean the whole house thoroughly, from cobwebs on the ceiling to crumbs and stains on carpets and rugs. Remember to wash down paintwork and clean windows.
Natural Colours - research shows that, most buyers prefer natural, earthy colours to bright, bold shades. Although there is a wide range of paint colours available, magnolia is still the top-selling colour.
Add a bit of colour - to prevent rooms looking too bland, use strong colours for accent walls or cushions and accessories.
De-personalise - remove personal items, such as family photographs and children's drawings, which may distract potential buyers.It may sound harsh but it really helps sell property
Maintenance - Complete all minor repairs.
Major Jobs- If you don't spend out on home improvements to complete major repairs it could have a disproportionate affect on the value of the property.
Lighting - the right lighting can improve the mood of a room. A room looks cosier with a few table lamps rather than bright general lighting.
Create a scent - it may be a bit of a cliché to bake bread or grind coffee beans just before the arrival of a potential buyer, but scent does plays an important role in creating the right impression.
Open windows - most buyers like the smell of a freshly cleaned and aired room. Open the windows every day to let fresh air into the house.
Avoid strong food odours - don't cook foods such as fish or curry before a viewing as the smell will linger.
Take pets out - ask friends or family to look after pets during viewings. Fresh flowers and fruit - flowers and a bowl of fruit will brighten up a room and provide a pleasant smell.
Define your rooms - a property will be more appealing if rooms have a specific purpose and this allows buyers to see the full potential of the property.
Seasons - the best time for selling property is spring and autumn; the market slows down during late summer and over Christmas/New Year. If a property is sold while the market is buoyant, it's much more likely to attract the asking price.
