After speaking to our agents, it is clear that many of our buyers decided a home was the one for them on the very first viewing, some even before they got past the hallway.

Even though buying a property is one of life’s most important decisions, it is still very much an impulsive buy based on feelings and perhaps an initial wow. Many buyers describe meeting their house akin to meeting a future partner, knowing that it was “the one”.

If you are selling your home, this means that you don’t have much time to win the hearts and minds of your buyers. Here are some tips to make sure your house is “the one” for your buyer.

31553 (8)Picture perfect, getting the right picture for your property is vitally important and as such we can offer our vendors a professional photography service. Whether you instruct our professional photographer or invite our agents to photograph your home, it is important to also make sure that your home is ready for its photo shoot.  Clear away clutter and washing etc and make sure the curtains are fully opened and cushions are neatly plumped on the sofa.  We want to show your home at its best as most people search online now, before approaching agents for a viewing.

Kerb appeal, the next thing a potential buyer sees is the outside of your house. We can’t overstate the importance of “kerb appeal” and that every minute spent pruning, sweeping, mowing, wiping and cleaning is worth its weight in gold.

Now you’ve captured your buyer this far, you have to make sure they really fall for your home. Presenting a blank canvas to a buyer is very effective, this way they can see the possibilities within your home.  If you’re serious about selling your house, get rid of clutter, paint the walls a neutral colour and invest in some bright cushions and attractive plants.
