Our 3 tricks for all property owners
Properties are all different, some are suitable for large families and others are ideal for a couple to live in.
It is important to identify your target market and the typically buyer that you’d expect to view your house and present the property accordingly. Prepare for an open house.
For example, with buyers that have a big family they may be more inclined if you present your spare room as a play room, whereas a couple may be more interested in a gym or office space. Identify your market and cater to their requirements.
Outside appearance is just as important
The first thing people notice about any property is the external features and how well the building holds up.
We recommend presenting the outside in a way that would attract buyers in and compare against your neighbours.
Improvement tips include painting the house, tidying the front area (cutting down bushes etc), inputting concrete and even planting flowers.
Adding an automatic gate to the front of your property (whilst important) isn’t only about aesthetics by simply adding a gate you can increase your property’s value by as much as £50,000.
A gated property of course enhances overall aesthetic appeal by adding an undeniable element luxury but it also improves security as it deters burglars as well as protecting children and pets from the traffic.
They also give you and your family the privacy you need. That’s why any good estate agent would recommend adding an automatic gate.
