It’s hard to know where to start when you’re looking to sell you home, especially if you’re trying to do it quickly. Check out our tips below to find out how to advertise your home effectively…
1) Take Professional Photos
It’s very important to give a great first impression. Make time to take some professional, high-quality photos of your staged home to accompany your online listing.
2) Depersonalise & Declutter
The more personal your space, the fewer buyers can imagine themselves living there. Finding that balance between creating a homely & inviting space, but keeping it generic-looking enough that buyers can imagine themselves living there is important. Sometimes you’ll discover that there is a need to dispose of household rubbish and that may require a skip bin hire. Skip bin sizes start small. Check our Skip Bin Size Guide.
3) Lights On
A light coloured house is a lot more inviting than one that is dark. Maximize the light in your home by taking down the drapes, cleaning the windows & swapping the lampshades.
4) Keep Your House Show-Ready at all Times
You need to be ready & available for buyers whenever they want to view the property, so the place has to be in tip-top shape. This means no dishes in the sink, a cleaned out the dishwasher, a sparkling bathroom & no dust bunnies in the corners. Whilst this might get pretty annoying, it will go a long way to getting your house sold.
5) Stay Out The Way
When potential buyers come to view your property, leave them to roam freely through the house with the agent. This will allow them to feel more comfortable as they can spend time looking through each room at their own pace & without feeling watched.
6) Take Your Pets Out
Although it’ hard to fathom sometimes, some people don’t like pets. Take your pets out for a walk or somewhere safe like a friend. Having evidence of pets & their odours can be a major turn off for some prospective buyers.
