Property Selling Guide
The average number of times a house is viewed before it is sold is currently around 10 viewings. Buyers are being picky, which is bad news for sellers. But the good news is there is much you can do to increase your chances of a quick sale in terms of how you present your home, how you show potential buyers around and how you follow up viewings.
In this section we tell you how to present your house in the best way possible, in order to get the fast sale you are looking for.
- before a viewing - how to de clutter and present your home to look its best.
- during a viewing - the dos and don'ts of showing potential buyers around your home.
- after a viewing - how to follow up the viewings to improve your chances of a quick sale.
When they view a house buyers want to feel like they are buying into a lifestyle. Many viewers will look at your décor, furniture and clutter and will be unable to see past it. They won't be able to visualise themselves and their own belongings in the house instead of yours. So you need to present in your house in a way that will appeal to buyers and the lifestyle that they want.
If you are not prepared to make changes to your house or you can't afford to, you would probably get a quicker sale through a property trader or investor. Traders and investors look for the potential in the property and its ability to make them money and are able to see through clutter and décor.
