PRESENTATION GETTING THAT “SOLD” STICKER ON YOUR HOUSE Making your home look as good as it can is vital to the success of your sale. The first tasks are to have a mammoth declutter (this will help when you come to pack up to leave the property) and then to clean everything until it’s absolutely spotless. A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for the interior and it is a good idea to tidy up the garden. All of this will be so beneficial when the photographs are taken to show your property in the best possible light when the marketing is compiled, as well as when your property is inspected by buyers. First impressions are very important. Some vendors consult a stylist if they do not have natural flair for making their home look good, and in some cases vendors will hire furniture should the property be vacant. These are recommendations only for those vendors who are not sure of the best way to get their property ready for sale.
Buyers for a property can be found all year round however it's not often that a purchaser for your home is out there, just waiting for you to put your home on the market. Timing, presentation and advertising are all required to bring buyers and sellers together for the best result. Spring is often considered to be the best time to sell. It's a time of optimism and with the weather clearing, more potential buyers will be out and about. It is also a time when more sellers will put their homes on the market so there will be more competition. Winter usually presents fewer buyers, but the buyers are usually more focussed on purchasing and traditionally there will be fewer homes on the market to choose from. Prior to placing your home on the market, allow an additional two weeks to prepare both the property and the marketing material.
A tidy home says "Welcome". Your home should be kept neat and tidy during the period of inspections. It should not necessarily be a "show place" but appear a comfortable home in which to live. Fresh flowers or indoor plants always brighten up a home. While you're cleaning, think about each room and what furniture really needs to be in it. Rooms look smaller when they are crowded. Clear out anything that's not needed to create a feeling of spaciousness. Make sure that all minor repairs are completed. Sticking doors and windows, loose door knobs, faulty plumbing, or peeling paint may affect your sale. Let plenty of light into your home. Nothing improves atmosphere more than brightness. And on a dull day switch on some lights prior to arrival of prospective purchasers. A warm comfortable heated home on cold days adds a feeling of cosiness; on a hot day don't forget to turn on any air conditioning or fans (or simply let the breeze flow through).
