Selling your home can be stressful enough so don’t make it even harder for yourself by making these rookie mistakes! Let’s take a look at the things that you must avoid if you want to sell your home.
Dark? Poor angles? The wrong rooms? Blurry? These are just a few of the things you don’t want your photographs to turn out like. Over 90% of buyers begin their journey by searching online so your photographs are of para mount importance; make sure you get them right.
Get the mood right
Getting the mood right is very important and a big part of this is not going overboard. For example, your house needs to smell nice, but it shouldn’t be overpowering and it shouldn’t be unnatural. Everyone likes the smell of coffee, but your kitchen should smell of it, not your bathroom!
There is no room for compromise when it comes to staging; no half measures. There needs to be flow from room to room and consistency helps with this; try to have similar themes and avoid having any empty space particularly if all other areas are well furnished/decorated.
This is an often overlooked area, but one which is critically important. You must have some marketing material to give to your potential buyers; doing this will help them to keep your property at the forefront of their thinking.
Give your buyers space
There is nothing worse than having sellers hovering over buyers when they are viewing; leave them to it and let your agent do their job which is selling your home. Let your buyers take their time, work at their own pace and take everything in. Just leave them alone!
Just like the mood you need to get this right. You have to put aside your own preferences whether you’re a hot or cold person and go for a neutral temperature that screams neither sauna nor igloo!
Take into account the weather outside too; go slightly cooler than average in the summer and slightly warmer than average in the winter.
