It’s our job to sell your home, but there are ways you can help
First Impressions count
Hanging gates, peeling paint, broken steps, damp patches — things like this give people either cause to panic or room to negotiate, so its worth dealing with all of them. And if it needs it, give your front door a fresh coat of paint.
Give people room to think
Keep things clean, tidy and uncluttered so people can stroll around your home as if they (might one day) own it. It’s been said that if someone takes a seat they’re at ease with the place they’re in — and maybe thinking about making an offer. So make sure people can get to sofas and armchairs easily.
Creating the right feel
In the winter, leave lights on around the house. Let fresh air in and damp or doggy smells out. Scented candles, maybe?
And never leave a property totally empty: that ‘lived-in’ feeling matters to buyers.
Two tried and tested techniques
Good smells sell, so brew a pot of fresh coffee just before the viewing. And if it’s winter and if you have a fire or stove, get it blazing. Nothing warms a buyer’s heart like a crackling log fire.
