If you want to sell your house, then you are going to need to make sure that you have as much interest as possible in your property and that you have a lot of viewings lined up.
It can be hard to know the best way to make sure that your home appeals to those potential buyers. But to help you try and get the most interest, the most viewings and then hopefully the most money for your property too, we have put together our top tips for boosting interest in your property.
Try and make your property neutral rather than personal
Your home is your castle and there is nothing wrong with making it as personal as possible while you are living there. You might love your home, packed with a lot of photos and objects, but if someone is coming to view it, then chances are that this will put viewers off.
The best idea is to try and stop thinking of it as your home, but rather as your property. Remove as many personal things from each room as you can. Pack them away and leave them for when you move into your new home.
Make an effort to ensure that your property looks the best that it can
It might sound superficial, but people will judge your property on how clean and tidy it is. So, if you can, then it will really benefit you to give your house a good old fashioned clean and tidy. Try and pack away anything that you don’t desperately need and pop it into storage.
Your home will benefit from being tidy and organised and you can also free up space to give it a good hard clean too. Both of which will make it as appealing as possible to your viewers.
Be prepared for short-notice viewers
Whilst an estate agent will do their best to give you as much notice as possible that someone is going to be viewing your property, this isn’t always possible. You may not be keen on agreeing a last minute viewing as it doesn’t give you much chance to get your home ready, but if you can accept them, then do.
The best thing to do is to make sure that you are prepared for last minute viewings as well. You should have already done most of the things that are going to help you get your home ready, so this shouldn’t be too difficult to do and you never know; a last minute viewer could be the one that puts an offer in and buys your property!
As you can see, there are plenty of things that you can do to make sure that your home generates the most interest when it comes to selling it. The main thing is to try and make it as neat as possible and also try to remove as many personal items as possible, as this will make it more appealing as possible to those viewing it.
