We all know that selling your home can be a challenging process. It is likely you will feel under stress and pressure, because there is so much at stake.
You want to sell your home for the best possible price, but you also want to sell your home as quickly as you can. Therefore, it is essential that you use some fast fixes before selling your home, to improve the impact you make with your property.
At Williams of Petersfield, we are pleased to say we have helped many homeowners sell their property, and we know the issues prospective buyers look for in a home. If you can minimise the main problems that make it harder to sell your home, you increase the chances of selling your home.
The following methods are all effective ways of improving your home before placing it on the property market:
- Make sure household appliances are cleaned to the best standard
- Create kerb appeal by making sure your garden area looks fantastic
- Minimise the number of family photos in the property
- Remove bulky furniture and try to create as much space as you can in and around the property
- Improve the lighting around the home
Take steps to connect with buyers
These tips and steps should help you connect with buyers, so review your home and think about which changes are likely to have the best impact. Not all homes are the same, so one or some of these tips are likely to have more impact on buyers than others. If there is an issue that needs to be resolved quickly, this should be the starting point for your work.
Also, don’t forget that each buyer has their own idea of what makes a great looking home. You need to ensure your home appeals to the most likely buyer for your property. When you make improvements with a buyer in mind, you enhance the chances of selling your home in an efficient and effective way.
No matter the current condition of your property, you will find that creating as much space as you can will be of benefit. Buyers want to see space and they want to uncover potential in their potential new home. Removing bulky furniture is a great step, and you should also consider utilising external storage to help you create more space around the home.
Elements like lighting and kitchen appliances may not be the first thing you think of when presenting your home, but they have a big impact on a buyers’ impression of your property. Once you know what your budget is, and how much time you have to improve your home, you can take steps to better connect with buyers.
If you are keen to better connect with buyers at the viewing stage, please contact Williams of Petersfield as we are happy to help. We offer an extensive range of services aimed at helping you to make the best impression on buyers, enabling you to sell your home at a faster rate.
