Are you looking to sell your property this Autumn? Here are Rollos top tips for a speedy sale.
Encourage early viewings
With the sun going down earlier and earlier as the year draws in, arranging viewings before it gets dark means that you can take advantage of the light. Everything looks brighter and clearer in natural daylight. It can get dark as early as 4pm in October therefore make sure to pencil in viewings before this time.
Rollos can provide an experienced agent to show your home during the day if you work full time or can’t manage early viewings, don’t panic!
Good lighting is everything
Make sure you showcase your property in its best light. This also applies to your photographs of the property; sometimes that mid-morning autumnal light can add a nice touch. Make sure to also put all of your lights on inside the property during viewings. This will brighten up your home giving a welcoming feel, particularly with it getting darker earlier. In addition to this, replace any old bulbs with energy efficient to ensure maximum brightness throughout the property.
Make your property feel welcoming and cosy
Always have your heating on so that the property is warm before each visit. Put on any electric or coal effect fires and add some scented candles. This can make your home feel cosy and inviting. These special features can add to your viewers over all experience.
Remember that buying a home is an emotional not rational process. You want to help each viewer picture themselves living in your property, adding little touches can make them feel more relaxed and welcome.
Exterior is important
Make sure to clear away any fallen leaves from the front and back of your property. This means the viewer can get a sense of the space with no obstructions. A neatly presented back garden can add significant value to your home and may be a real selling point for a potential buyer. You could even plant some autumnal flowers that bloom over the winter and add that finishing touch to your front door.
Tips no matter the season…
Make sure your property is clean and tidy. Buyers need to imagine themselves living in your property, therefore make sure to de clutter and remove any out of date, bulky or tarnished furniture. A clean, simple feel is likely to again attract more buyers as it gives them a blank canvas to add their own style. Neutral interiors can also help with this and add to bringing more light in to your home.
