In order to achieve maximum exposure and to fulfill the true potential of your home you should prepare the property in a timely fashion before the photoshoot and the viewings. Presentation is very important and marketing is key to a successful campaign. That’s what attracts potential buyers to your property so let’s make the most of it.
Is the property looking shabby and tired?
If so you have three options:
- Leave it as it is 😒
- Consider a cheap and cheerful make over: deep clean, declutter, perhaps a leak of paint 😉
- *Invest some money knowing that you will probably get them back when the property is sold. 🤩
*This will depend on factors such as: the asking price, the amount of money spent and how the money is spent. If you would like to discuss these options in details please click here.
No matter how well you present the property some people might still decide to strip everything before they move in so replacing worn, damaged carpets and painting the walls might seem a bit of a waste of time and money.
Having said that there is a lot to be said about presenting a clean and “ready to move in” environment.
Buyers like a well presented home and not everyone has the eye or the energy to see through a tired looking house.
People pay a premium for properties in turn-key conditions.
Give it a proper good deep clean, paint the walls if need be, fix that leaking tap, replace the silicone around the shower area/bath… little things like that can make the difference when it comes down to gaining an extra bid or indeed adding another potential buyer to the race.
Tip: always prepare the property to the best of your ability so that when it hits the market you would have given yourself the best chances for a successful and rewarding campaign.
