As the house market is at the lowest it’s been in a long time, there are fewer potential buyers looking at properties, which means houses are taking a lot longer to sell than they would have a few years back. Bearing this in mind it is vital that you do everything that you can to ensure that if someone comes to view your house, they like it and want to buy it!
Here are a few tips which will help you turn a viewer into a buyer.
Clear The Clutter
While it is nice for a house to feel homely and lived in, too much can make the house look cluttered and untidy. Throw away or sell anything that isn’t needed and package everything else up and store it away in the attic until you have sold the house. Clearing the house of all the clutter will not cost you anything, but could mean the difference between someone thinking that your house looks messy and looks like their new home.
Once you have decluttered the house, ensure that you have cleaned everywhere, especially the rooms where hygiene is important such as the bathroom and kitchen. This may mean replacing a few little bits around the house, such as a new door mat or curtain for the shower, but the last thing you want is for the viewer to think the house is dirty.
Finish Any Jobs
If you have started tiling the shower and haven’t got around to finishing it, one of the doors has fallen and needs adjusting or the bulb needs replacing in the outdoor light, get these jobs done as soon as possible. You may have learned to live with the door sticking or light not working, it could give the impression that your house isn’t looked after and needs a lot of repair work carrying out.
First Impressions Count
When the viewers step out of the car, they should be wowed by your house. Whether it’s a case of tidying up your garden, giving the house a lick of paint, pressure washing your path or replacing the front door, you need to make sure that the first impression of the house is a good one. If the house looks a mess from outside, you not only put the viewers off before they are in the house, but you also put people off even wanting to come and view the house.
