Preparing your property for sale is a crucial part of the sales process – when there are plenty of buyers in the market, the right preparation can help you to get top dollar for your property and good presentation can help to sell your home more quickly. Unless your house is hideously dated or very run down, we recommend that you don’t spend a fortune to smarten it up. The possibility of over capitalising is very real, particularly in a competitive market.
Look at any problem areas objectively, consider where improvements can be made for little outlay and make them. More often than not, a good clean, de-clutter and some paint will work wonders.
This is when the property is marketed with a selling price – the amount the seller wants to be paid for his property.
If you have someone who is coming for a viewing your property, that’s a great sign. It means that they have read about your property, probably know the area it is in, have even seen a picture of it on the Internet or in the newspaper, know the price range and are still very interested.
Smarten up your home to improve its kerb appeal. Keep in mind that many prospective buyers will do a “drive by” before they call an agent to go through the properties they like. If your front garden is a mess, you’ve stacked bins by the front door, your window frames are peeling paint and your windows are grimy, no-one is going to give your home a second look unless they are looking for a restoration project.
