Viewings are an essential part of the process if you plan to sell your home. There’s no getting away from it, as it is highly unlikely that anyone will commit to buying a new home without viewing it first.
The viewing appointment itself is often an overlooked part of the process. Many homeowners simply open the door and let the prospective buyers wander around. Others might opt for a grand tour, divulging far too much information and overwhelming the viewers completely with tales relating to every aspect of your home.
There are things you can do, as the seller, to improve the viewing experience for both yourself and the buyer. Whilst this probably won’t persuade someone to make an offer if they don’t like the property, it can improve the time they spend at your property and leave them with a lasting impression. It could be enough to push them if they are on the fence.
In any case, your Estate Agent should be conducting the viewings for you. It’s not as easy as everyone thinks (when it is done properly). We know what you’re thinking and we’ve heard all the stories about the agents that show no interest during viewings. We’re different, get in touch and we will explain why.
