It's a fact that a few small cosmetic improvements can have a big impact on the way buyers react to your home. First impressions really do count. According to research, potential buyers will form an opinion about your home in the first 15 seconds - so it's important to ensure that it's a favourable one.
A little effort can make all the difference in terms of attracting buyers - particularly in a very competitive market, or if you need to sell quickly.
Of course, there's no substitute for regular maintenance. Refurbishing a lived-in home can be very expensive! By the same token, avoid anything too big and costly - otherwise you will almost certainly lose money. If your home needs any major works carried out, it is sometimes advisable to reflect the asking price of the property accordingly and sell your home to a buyer who is willing to carry out the work rather than pay for the work and you still may not get the price you need to cover the cost of the works.
If like most of us you have a busy lifestyle and limited time then the best advice is to de-clutter and de-personalise your property ensuring that it is as clean and tidy as possible, however most discerning buyers are there to look at the bricks and mortar and in most cases will look past an untidy or a lived in property if it ticks all the right boxes.
At Selbon we truly believe that the right house, marketed by the right agent, at the right price will sell no matter what but the above will most certainly help!
