First Impressions Count

Love at first sight doesn’t just apply to relationships. Potential buyers can fall in love with your property at first sight if you follow a few simple rules…

Kerb Appeal….if buyers have to fight with an unloved gate hinge, grapple with an overgrown lawn or step over your rubbish bags before they’ve reached your front door then this is what they will remember.

A tidy property will attract attention from people passing by and encourage them to call your agent to see what is on the other side of the door. To make your property appealing, paint the fence or railings. De-weed the pathway, cut the lawn and hide those wheelie bins.

Let the buyers eye be drawn to the property rather than the cluttered driveway.

Declutter and Depersonalise

Once you’ve de-cluttered the outside, don’t stop there. Statistics show that it is the first 14 seconds in a property that can make the decision of a sale. When your potential buyer is inside ensure that they can move freely from room to room, they don’t want to be stepping over toys, the cat, the dog or ill placed furniture. Although it is difficult for some vendors to depersonalise, it’s very important when it comes to selling your property. A buyer needs to imagine themselves living their new life here. It is important that you view it as your property now rather than your home.

In Summary:

  • Give your property kerb appeal
  • Declutter Outside and In
  • Depersonalise
