With property deals being so important and involving a lot of money, it is no surprise that the parties involved want to make an informed decision. If you are looking to sell your home, you know how important it is to place your home on to the market in the correct manner. You will want to learn more about local property prices, what buyers are looking for in homes like yours and you’ll need to know the best way to approach these buyers.
Buyers are also looking for information, and they are carrying out a lot of research. As a vendor, you have a chance to help buyers with their research and in doing so, you can promote your home effectively while creating a positive impression in the likely buyer. At Williams of Petersfield, we are pleased to say we have helped many local vendors sell their home, and we bring vendors closer together with buyers.
Think about what buyers are looking for when they research property
Some of the most important things buyers consider or are looking for when buying property includes:
- How much space is available in the home?
- How many electrical sockets are available in the home and the condition of the electrical network?
- The condition of plumbing and pipes at home
- Whether the home is soundproofed or not
- Whether the drains can be relied upon?
All these matters are important for buyers, and if you can provide them with relevant guidance and advice, it will help the buyer form an opinion about your home. If your home is an older one, prospective buyers will have natural concerns over its suitability for modern living. Older homes weren’t built with today’s dependence on electrical items in mind, so it is understandable that buyers will want assurances about the condition of a home.
Vendors can make informed decisions too in the property market
Although there is a lot of focus on buyers obtaining a survey or report for their home, this is something that vendors can benefit from too. If there are issues with your home, knowing about them provides you with the opportunity to make improvements or at least inform a buyer about the condition of the home.
It is fair to say many modern buyers are savvy, and will carry out a lot of research on a local area. A buyer will know about local schools, about transport options, about crime rates and many other aspects relating to a local community. However, it is not possible to carry out an online search about the condition or merits of an individual home, so this is where a buyer is keen to obtain additional information.
A smart vendor will aim to provide prospective buyers with as much information as possible and if you make life easier for buyers, it can improve your chances of selling your home. If you are looking to sell your home in 2019, contact Williams of Petersfield and we will be more than happy to assist you.
