10 Tips To Ensure Your Property Is Viewing Ready
Before prospective buyers arrive, it is important that your property is ready to be viewed. Here are Bournemouth and Poole Estate Agent, Lovett’s top 10 tips to ensure your property is viewing ready.
1. Kerb appeal
The exterior of your home makes a lasting first impression and sets the tone for the entire viewing, try to ensure its welcoming.
A bright room is an appealing room. Ensure that your windows are clean, curtains are open and all your bulbs are working. Light and neutral colours can help to make a room feel more spacious.
Ask a friend to suggest some items to remove. Even items that you love, such as your bike, or shoe rack could clutter an otherwise spacious area. Try to streamline your home to show off the space on offer.
Ensuring your property is an appropriate temperature for the season will make it a welcoming environment. Open windows in the summer and make use of heating in the winter.
Candles, fragrances and good ventilation all help to ensure that your property is homely and appealing.
Keeping your property clean and tidy is essential as it signals to a prospective buyer that your home is well cared for.
7. Resolve minor issues
Viewers will be on their guard so be sure to take the time to fix that leaky tap, lose door handle, cracked tile or mark on the wall. Don’t give the viewer an excuse to offer lower
8. Put your pets away
As much as we love Fido, keep in mind that your viewer may have an allergy or a phobia. It is best to keep them in a separate room or out with a friend and make sure you have thoroughly hoovered up any fur.
9. Give viewers space
Allow viewers space to talk with each other, wander the rooms and have all the time they need to explore and assess your home. Let them start picturing themselves living there!
10. Stay prepared
Keeping your home viewing ready will allow for those late or last-minute viewings – you never know when the right buyer will enquire.
