How To Sell Your Old Home
We all know how critical first impressions can be. Which is why it’s important to do all you can to show your home in the best possible light, right from the very first moment a viewer steps through the door.
Potential buyers need to be able to imagine themselves living in your home, but they also need to feel as though they can move in without having to make major changes. So you need to ensure your home gives that strong first impression.
3 Common mistake you should avoid
- Overpricing: Whilst everyone wants to achieve the best selling price possible an overpriced property could deter potential buyer from even viewing your home. It’s advisable to seek the help of a professional estate agent who will use their expertise about the local market to suggest a fair price based on recent sales in your area.
- Bad Photos: A picture, as they, is worth a thousand words. Home buyers often begin their property search online, meaning high quality photos are essential. Avoid photos with bad lighting or any that are blurry and poor quality. Before taking photos or arranging for your agent to take some ensure each room is tidy, the curtains are open, and all the light bulbs are working before they come over.
- Too Much Personality: When selling your home you want it to appeal to as many prospective buyers as possible, so ensure your presentation is not over personalised. Buyers need to be able to imagine themselves living in the property. Too many photographs and personal effects on display can prevent a buyer from seeing your property’s full potential. With a few small checks and changes you will have a successful sale and be moving into your new home in no time!
