Its time to tidy
Almost one third of homes untidy for viewings
A survey from Move with Us, which surveyed over 100 independent estate agents from its partner network, highlighted that almost a third of properties are untidy when potential buyers arrive for a viewing.
Any professional estate agent will do their utmost to help sell a property but their efforts will be immediately undone if the moment a potential buyer walks through the door, they see a property that’s a mess. Purchasing a property is one of the biggest transactions of someone’s life and potential buyers will want to think that the property has been looked after by its current owners.
Sellers should work in partnership with their estate agent, and take action to ensure their property is attractive to potential buyers. With almost a quarter of potential home owners being put off by untidy property, a little elbow grease could mean the difference between selling a property or not.
Andrew Calder, Director in charge of sales at CALDERS RESIDENTIAL agrees with the comments made by Move With Us. “If you want the best chance of selling your home, try to look at it through buyers eyes or ask a friend to walk around the property prior to offering it for sale, asking them to point out any items that may influence a buyer’s decision”
“When you are listing your property for sale, the photographs are one of the best selling tools you have. Make sure your house is tidy, washing up put away; piles of laundry moved and try to persuade your children to put away their toys. Don’t forget that the photos will be available to anyone looking on the internet and attention to detail can make the difference between someone deciding to view or otherwise” comments Andrew.
When you change something in your house or garden, or there is a change of season, why not ask your Estate Agent to renew the photos on your sales details and property listings. CALDERS RESIDENTIAL are always happy to review sales details, photographs and marketing at any stage. Andrew is always happy to discuss the sale of your property at anytime.
