You rarely need to spend thousands of dollars to make your home appealing. By adding a few ‘extra sparkles’ you can make a big difference in the presentation of your home. Buyers are attracted by the appearance of your property and, when they inspect it, they are influenced by its atmosphere. The right appearance outside, followed by the right mood inside, gives you the best chance to get the highest price.
Falling In Love
Buying a home is emotional, and so the ‘feeling’ of a home is important. If your agent has ‘qualified’ the buyers, they will not just be ‘looking’; they will be genuine people who can genuinely afford your asking price. Their feelings will be the main reason they accept or reject your property. The word ‘love’ is common with home-buying – and even with land, when buyers report loving the location. Buyers say, “We loved that home and that’s why we bought it.” So make sure you present your property at its finest. Remove or fix anything that might ‘turn-off’ the buyers.
We are attracted to homes the same way we are attracted to people, and first impressions count. Most buyers first start their search for property online, so presentation and quality photographs are imperative (for more information on how to prep your home for photography and open homes click here). To make your home look its best, attention to detail is crucial. When you live in a property you can sometimes overlook its little faults, so take the time to have a fresh look. Stand in the street and look at your property as if you were seeing it for the first time. Try hard to pick faults. It is better that you find the faults, while there is time to fix them, than have the buyers find the faults. Try to judge your property by the standards of the buyers, not by your standards – try and see it through strangers’ eyes.
The challenge is to make your property as attractive as possible without spending too much money in the process, a few ‘extra sparkles’ can really make a huge difference!
