Impress your Property Buyer before they Walk Through the Door
People are always struggling to do whatever they can just to make sure that their home is in good condition before they can put on sale sign on their property, but for anyone that is selling their home, the image is just a fraction of everything that matters. Psychologist argue that humans analyze and make up their minds about another person within the first 15 seconds of meeting them. If we go by this logic, the same applies when it comes to viewing of a property.
Even before they can step inside the home, it is very likely that a buyer will have already made up their mind. The big deal here is that we need to do something extra to ensure that we create a perfect first impression, and go on to build on it as the prospective buyer goes through your house.
What you need to do first is getting in the mind of the buyer by thinking as they do. Makes sure that you take an objective view of your home and don’t forget the fact that people will decide whether they want to view your home even before you can receive that call from the realtor.
Importance of Previewing
Previewing is something that is easy to forget until the very last minute when you decide to put up your house for sale. By viewing your home photos, prospective buyers get an idea of how your home looks like, and if they see something that catches their eye for the wrong reasons, then will just bypass it and look at the next property.
A home inspector is the only way to ensuring photogenic interiors as well as ensuring that your home is attractive and presentable. Once everything is camera ready, take pictures that show the home in flattering angle and make sure every photo is well lit.
Creating Sidewalk Appeal
You need to get into the mindset of the buyer as you look at your property and ask yourself if anyone would like to live here. If you have answered this question is no, then you need to work on it and make sure that it is a yes. Make sure that you declutter the area along your walkway and leave the walkway looking as natural as possible without forcing your personality on it since you need to please as many people as possible. It is equally important that you clear out the gutters as this is something that your viewer will be quick to note.
While there is nothing that you can do to improve the area around your property, you could do some market research and look into other houses that are similar to yours and identify their good and bad areas. This comparison offers you a better idea of what your house is lacking especially if you are struggling with selling it. By comparing with other homes, you can see if there is something that looks different when you compare with other homes in your neighborhood and be able to change that.
