Leicester is renowned for a wide range of properties, from residential to commercial, rich and poor. If you have found the house of your dreams and want to quickly sell your property, there are a few quick wins you should be aware of. Open House, Estate agents in Leicester, are recommended and renowned for selling properties quickly and efficiently. Finding home sellers, the right buyers for their property. Here are a few tips below:
Neighbours from hell
Nobody enjoys noisy or messy neighbours, especially not a potential buyer. This is obviously out of your control, but it is something you can manage. Maybe their garden hasn’t been tidied in years, or their pet dog won’t stop barking, get to know your neighbour and perhaps they may be able to help. If all else fails, organising viewings for when they are not home might be a quicker way to resolve the issue.
Attention to detail
Poor attention to detail such as: flaking paint, grubby kitchen units, tatty net curtains, unemptied ashtrays and nicotine stained walls are taken into consideration when viewing a property.
Things that you live with everyday may slip your eyes, but they wont for a potential buyer. They have eyes like a hawk, trust us.
The experts at Leicester Letting Agency said “First impressions are massive and we often find ourselves apologising for the sights of the less cared for properties. We always arrive early to a viewing to open the windows, curtains, close the lids to the toilets and pull a duvet into position here and there.”
Dirty kitchens or bathrooms are not a nice thought and certainly not something that a viewer will want to see. Our Leicester property consultancy team suggest to have the property professionally cleaned before going to market.
Small and affordable fixes such as: freshening up the paint work, or having your home professionally cleaned will make a world of difference and worth it in the long run.
Hurdles you should think about
There is nothing worse than a viewer than turning up to view a property and finding there is a significant issue with a property which they were not aware of such as a structural defect, a problem with something in the neighbourhood or compromised accommodation. It is waste of time for all people involved.
It is a wise precaution to maintain compliance with Consumer Protection Regulations, but it also makes good business sense – the viewers are more trusting of us and willing to discuss the issues and the available solutions.
Sell the properties best features
It is common for a vendor to want to take part in the viewing or show off their DIY aspects of the property. It is important to get the right Leicester vendor to carry out accompanied viewings.
It is equally important to allow the viewer to walk round the property themselves and get a feel for the space on their own. Take a step back and let your agent do the work, it is their job after all and you will thank them later.
