Who doesn’t enjoy watching property programmes on TV like Location, Location, Location, Grand Designs or Escape to the Country?
Personally, I really love the fact that the homes always look stunning- they are light, spacious, tastefully decorated and furnished, plus you can totally picture yourself living there, without having to change a thing!
Let’s face it; it’s almost as if someone has carefully crafted each room to provoke a positive reaction and appeal to your emotions?
We all know TV is nothing like reality. But if you are planning to sell a property soon, it’s worth remembering there are lots of things that you can do to show it in its best light. This way you will give potential buyers good vibes the moment they see your property from the road and/or take their first steps through your front door.
Quite often, it is those first 3 seconds over the threshold that stimulate the desire to buy the property and make it your home.
”“Good presentation of your property is half the battle when it comes to securing that all-important offer.
Remember buyers make up their minds about a property in seconds, so you need to ensure that everything adds up, from the front of your house to the garden, inside every room and its surroundings too. If you like what you see, then so will other people.”Clare BonwickLocal Property Expert
And all it takes is a little preparation and of course, looking at your property through the eyes of a prospective buyer.
Who is your audience, who are the buyers? If you imagine your buyer has a growing family, for example, you need to show plenty of space for children to play.
Of course, your property should be clean, tidy and presentable, but there is so much more that you can do besides.
So, the first step is being honest about your property – what needs to be removed, added, improved or changed – and then work out what strategies you need to employ to showcase its attributes.
On that subject, grab a piece of paper and right down a list of features that a buyer would benefit from if they chose to live in your property…
