Estate Agent FAQ
Thinking of selling? If you are looking to sell your property in the Ruddington or Nottingham area then we can help. To get you started with the process, we list some great tips for preparing yourself to move.
First impressions are key
You only have several seconds to attract a potential buyer when they are scrolling through Rightmove, Zoopla or On The Market. For this reason, you want your property to stand out. Ensure your front garden is clear, your house looks tidy and your car has been removed from the drive. All these things count towards getting a viewing booked in.
Properties are bound to have imperfections. Unfortunately, buyers will take note of everything in order to negotiate on price. Whilst a little negotiation is completely acceptable, you can avoid large, unnecessary price drops by taking on small household DIY projects. Consider filling in holes or sprucing up aged rooms with a lick of paint.
Keep rooms tidy
A home is there to be lived in and you may have some clutter in each room. Perhaps there are old children’s toys or unwanted gym equipment in spare bedrooms, for example. Having an untidy room can make it look much smaller when seen in person. Ensure you have plenty of floor space available for both the marketing photographs and when viewers visit your property.
Think about smells
This may seem a little odd, but smells can go a long way when a potential buyer views your property. An old tactic is to have fresh flowers on display or a pot of coffee brewing. If you have pets, make sure you remove their toys or litter trays. Some visitors may not be too keen on pet scents.
Get good marketing photos
Your estate agent should handle this but ensure you check through their photos before they leave. Rooms should look light and spacious, with sharp imagery and straight edges. Avoid an agent who wants to take photographs at night as this could look less appealing.
