With Halloween fast approaching, we thought we’d do a bit of trick or treating with a twist.
Selling your home, with or without a global pandemic in tow, at the right time, at the right price and to the right buyer, relies on some key ingredients in the witches’ cauldron.
Here are our five top tricks, when thinking of putting your home on the market.
And we’re offering FREE VALUATIONS for every reader that spots a Halloween reference. Oh, hang on, we offer free valuations anyway…
No capturing ghosts or ghouls in this house…
Photography is absolutely key, and buyers want to see the dream, not be in a nightmare. Adrian Giles, our Cannock Branch Manager, says “treat photography of your home as you would your wedding – get a professional!”.
Everything from lighting and positioning, to staging and post-production, must be perfect to capture the real essence of your home.
The proof is in the pumpkin pudding – homes with high quality photography sell 32% faster and can achieve anywhere between £2k – £10k more on the sale price.
Such is the value we place on photography when we sell your home, we offer professional photography for free.
Cobwebs are no treat for a buyer
Clean. Clean. And clean again. Buyer’s will look EVERYWHERE. So, a deep clean in those hard to reach places is a must. And just think how righteous you’ll feel afterwards anyway.
When you sell with us, as part of our free valuation, we will point out what needs to be done. Don’t be offended!
Put the broomsticks away
As well as a deep clean, a no holds barred tidy up will not only reflect well in the professional photographs, but potential buyers like to see your home stripped back of its surface clutter.
Anything you do leave on display should be in good repair and placed, not plonked and be sure to ‘chop’ (AKA plump up) those cushions Mrs Hinch style.
Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and [candles] bubble.
“Wax melts and candles make for a very cosy atmosphere” says Tom Cooper, Sales Manager at our Solihull branch. Making the best of your home means presenting a homely, welcoming and friendly atmosphere to the buyer.
