So, you’re thinking of putting your house on the market and you’re looking to make a move up the property ladder to a brand new home? It’s an exciting time but a stressful one too. Will your current house fetch its worth in the market place? If not, can you afford that gorgeous place you’ve had your eye on?
We’ve enlisted the help of our local experts at Clyde Property to share some helpful hints and tips that will help to ensure your property fetches the right price in the marketplace.
Make a Good First Impression
“Make sure your home is in the best condition possible when inviting potential viewers into your home,” says Tara Sinclair, Area Manager at Clyde Property Perth.
“By taking the time to prepare your house appropriately, you’ll make it more attractive to those interested in taking a look. There are a few things that buyers will look for in particular, such as a neat and attractive kitchen, a neutral décor and well-presented bedrooms. This will help the potential buyers to picture themselves moving into your home with minimal hassle.” By taking the time to prepare your house appropriately, you’ll make it more attractive to those interested in taking a look.
So there you have it – by taking some time to properly prepare your home for viewings, you will increase the chances of fetching the right price from potential suitors.
The Right Presentation
We live in a digital world now, and making sure your house is listed online is an essential part of the selling process.
“Having an eye catching HD video and professional photography showing your house at all the right angles makes a big difference,” according to Tara.
“Also having an accurate floorplan and a beautifully presented brochure adds to this. Having the right description to make your house appeal to the correct target market is important too. Even the most beautiful homes can look unattractive when not presented properly both on and offline. That will impact the amount of interest in your home and ultimately the final sale price.”
Showcasing Your Property on the Right Channels
So, you’ve got a stunning HD video, some brilliant photography and a beautifully presented brochure and floorplan but you need to get all of this out there to those who are in the market for a new house.
“Listing your home online is essential,” advises Tara, “listing on our website is a great first step but at Clyde we’ll also make sure your home is listed on major property portals.
“What we do above and beyond that is ensure that each HD video presentation gets a bespoke social media campaign which will ensure your home gets pushed to the right target markets and potential buyers might just fall in love with your place from there.
“On top of that, we also make sure that your home is showcased to our current database of buyers so by the time your home is listed online we may have already built up a significant amount of interest in it.”
The more interest in your house, the better chance you have of getting the best possible price and also getting a quicker sale – it’s a win-win!
Choosing the Right Negotiator
Who should you choose? Well, it’s no surprise who our expert recommends!
