Spring has arrived, so if you're planning on selling your property during this busy time of year, here are some simple planning tips to help you fully reap the rewards.
Presentation of your property is a critical factor in achieving the highest possible price...
Even the most astute investor will be encouraged by a well-presented property. People are emotional beings and will be stimulated by what they see, feel and hear. If they see neglect, they'll imagine the worst. If they see a well-presented property, they may even overlook minor disadvantages. You don't need to renovate or invest a fortune, just simply make the most of what you already have.
Some of the main turn offs for buyers include:
- Rubbish (inside and out - despite how neatly it may be stacked)
- Clutter or oversized furniture
- Animal odours
- Dampness and darkness
- Cigarette or strong food odours
- Doors, windows or gates that stick
- Peeling paint
- Cracked glass
- Stained carpet
- Overgrown gardens & lawns
