5 Steps to Get Your Home Ready for Viewers

Posted on 5th February 2021 in News

Selling your home is a stressful time and keeping your home viewer ready often adds to that. We’ve put together 5 easy steps to get your home ready for viewers and make your life that little bit easier.

 

Be Photo Ready

The first thing anyone does when looking for property is look at photographs. Before your agent comes out to take the pictures, take some time to clean and tidy up. A buyer’s decision-making process on whether or not they’re interested starts before they step through the front door, so great pictures mean more viewers.

 

Curb Appeal

For those selling a house, potential viewers will often drive by to have a look at the property from the outside and get a feel for the area. Small jobs like making sure the grass is cut or newly painted garage doors can make all the difference for viewers trying to get an initial feel for the property.

 

Let in Some Light

Natural light can be a fantastic tool when selling a property. When you get your photographs taken, its likely that your agent will ensure all curtains and blinds are open to let in as much light as possible. We’d also advise doing this when viewers come round to create a good atmosphere and show as much of your property as possible.

 

Think About Furniture

You may not be selling your own home but rather a second property which understandably may be empty. Where possible, it’s always a good idea to place some key pieces of furniture around the property, such as couches, beds and wardrobes. The reason for this is that it’s often easier for viewers to get a better idea of the size of the property and where their own furniture would go if there is already some in the house/flat to work with.

 

DIY

Not everyone loves DIY, but there’s no better time to take it on than when selling your property. As viewers go round your property, people often add up in their head little bits and pieces around the property needing fixed up. By sorting out minor issues ahead of viewers arriving, this ensures viewers are really looking at what your property has to offer instead of minor issues.
