Selling Your Property
First National Real Estate Druitt & Shead’s team of expert Sales Consultants can help you to sell your home quickly and for the best possible price. Here are some tips that have proven to be invaluable to the successful home seller.
First Impressions Are Lasting
From the moment prospective Buyers arrive at your home, it should be evident that the home, including any gardens and lawns are well presented. Any small items of maintenance should be taken care of prior to the commencement of marketing to ensure that the property is presented in its best possible light and excess clutter should be removed or packed away prior to viewing by potential buyers. Your Druitt & Shead agent can offer suggestions for anything that may be necessary to maximise the presentation of your home.
A Tidy Home Ensures An Open For Inspection Is Welcoming
Your home should be kept as neat and tidy as possible during the period of inspections. The home should create an inviting atmosphere by ensuring the arrangement of furniture is in a comfortable position. Utilise fresh flowers, indoor plants or paintings as they always brighten up a home. If the property that you are selling is vacant, you can discuss with your Druitt & Shead agent, the possibility of staging the home to maximise presentation.
Let The Sun Shine In
It is imperative to let as much light as possible into your home. Nothing improves atmosphere more than brightness. On a dull day it is advisable to switch lights on prior to the arrival of prospective purchasers.
Make Them Comfortable
A warm, comfortably heated home on cold days adds a feeling of cosiness. On a hot day don’t forget to turn on the air conditioning or fan (or simply let the breeze flow through)!
Music In The Air And Pets Underfoot
As a general rule, it is advisable to turn off the radio and television during an inspection (as they can be distracting). If you have pets, it is advisable to take them out of the house for home opens/ private viewings. Let your Druitt & Shead agent and potential buyer talk, free of disturbances.
