In my last blog I talked about four key things that you should consider when you’re thinking about how much your property is worth, and tody I’d like to elaborate on that a bit and talk about things you can do to sell your home for the right price.
First thing’s first, you should always try to amplify the features of your house by making them a discussion point for agents when they’re with buyers. You can do this in a few ways:
Think about why someone would talk about the feature. Have you recently painted it? Is it brand new? Is it still under warranty? Is it something you’d use every day?
If there’s nothing to talk about, what can you do to make it a talking point? Can you paint it? Can you replace it? Is it moveable?
Let your agent know what the talking points are so they can emphasise them when talking to buyers.
Some other things that help to create interest in your property include:
Personaltouches in your home’s presentation. A homely home is more inviting than a sterile home.
Use appliances such as the oven before an inspection – an aroma of a recently cooked in kitchen might make for a great topic of discussion, and help to get the buyers to imagine themselves living in the home.
List the things that you’ve done to the property, if you’ve taken photos throughout renovations, put a little photo album together for the agent to show potential buyers. It gives the home life and can really be a point of difference from other homes the buyers have looked at. It will certainly make it memorable!
The more time a potential buyer spends inspecting your home, the more they’ll envisage themselves living there, so the more you can do to encourage discussion about your property, the better the chances of it selling for the right price!
I’m happy to chat to you about my ideas and help you create a point of difference when selling your home, so please don’t hesitate to contact me via the blog or contact details on this page.
