Tips For Sellers
First Impressions are Lasting
From the moment the prospects arrive they should notice that the gardens and lawns are well presented.
A Tidy House says "Welcome"
Your home should be kept neat and tidy during the period of inspections.
Repairs can make a Big Difference
Make sure that all minor repairs are completed. Sticking doors and windows, loose door knobs, faulty plumbing, peeling or faulty flywire may all affect the sale of your home.
Letting the Sunshine in
Let plenty of light into your home. Nothing improves atmosphere more than brightness.
Make them comfortable
A warm, comfortably heated home on cold days adds a feeling of cosiness.
Inspections:there's a crowd
Avoid having too many people present during inspections, and try not to follow potential buyers around, a little space for reflection or private discussion is generally appreciated.
Silence is Golden
Be courteous and available for questions but try not to force conversation with a potential buyer. The prospective purchaser wants to inspect your home-not pay a social call.
Music in the Air, Pets Underfoot
As a general rule it is advisable to turn off radio and television sets during inspections, as they can be very distracting.
Some More "Dont's"
Don't apologise for the appearance or condition of your home (this does nothing but emphasis the faults).
Working as a Team
You and your agent should always work as a team. If you feel your agent has overlooked some important selling points, feel free to discuss them privately.
