So you have decided to move to a new place? That is great and we know how excited you must feel about it. But moving to a new place means that you should leave the old one, right? And unless you have been living under rent, you will probably start thinking how to sell your home. Nowadays, with the increasing competition in the property market it is a very essential to prepare the home in a way to make people want to buy it.
Usually when the owner decides to sell his/her home they do not prepare it tin actually be sold. And what is worse, they refuse to accept any advices from experts in this field. And the result is usually one – months and even years waiting for someone to buy your home, loss of time and money. Not to mention the stress.
First and most important – put yourself in the buyer shoes and stand in front of the front door. What do you see? Dirty, ugly door will repulse you, right? And it take so little to do things right – a cloth and water and voila – the door is like new again.
Clean the whole place. In the hall, the dining room, the kitchen – every single room of the place, including the bathroom of course. Move to the trash every unnecessary thing, remove spots, change the wallpapers where necessary. Make sure there is enough light getting into the rooms, to be sure the place will not look gloomy and dark.
Also open all of the windows to let some fresh air into the place. Make sure there are no extra unpleasant odours. And again – let the sunshine in! If it is night, turn on all of the lights. It has been proven that the more light there is in one place, the more comfortable and cosy it seems. And this influences the decision of the prospective buyer to buy the home.
If you have a garden, it is a good idea to clean it from the weeds and bushes. When the prospective buyer comes to see the place make sure that it will be only you and him/her there. The family, no matter how much you love them, may be an issue for the buyer as he/she might feel in the wrong place and leave as quickly as possible.
Another very simple trick is to start showing the place from the most uncomfortable room and to finish with the most beautiful one. This trick has proven to have a huge psychological effect on the prospective buyer decision.
Do not forget to be polite, kind, charming, nice, patient and remember – never apologise for anything! Do not try to make a conversation. If the prospective buyer wants to talk, he/she will talk. The buyer has come to see the place. Show them the place. If they have questions, answer them. If they criticize your home – well, better don’t answer. Remember, buying a new home is a delicate task and the prospective buyer will want to carefully review and consider all the advantages and disadvantages of your offer before accepting it. Just like you have done with your new home. http://removalsbristol.net/man-and-van/
