Key things to do before you market your home

market your home

You have decided to sell or market you home, this is one of the biggest financial and emotional investments you will make. At David Phillip Estate Agents we ensure we do all we can to market your property in the most professional eye catching way. Using 3D virtual tours, local area videos and beautiful photography all enhance how the property is marketed.

We also use all the main property portals to ensure you reach the greatest audience too.

It is important that you make a good first impression and the marketing is the first step, however there are some things that you can also do which will enable you to sell your home quicker and perhaps for a better price too.

Repairs – fix all those nagging things that you have lived with, it is likely your buyer won’t want to live with them either, and these can be easily noticed on a viewing. If the paint needs updating, keep it neutral.

Kerb appeal – this is the first impression someone makes when they pull up at your house. Clean windows, patios and decking. Ensure the front door is in good repair as well as the hardware. Maintain shrubs and paving, and when the gardens aren’t so filled with plants and flowers in the Autumn and Winter add a winter hanging basket! Remove cars from the drive at the times of the viewing so that the viewers can park easily, and remove dustbins too.

De-clutter – remove old throws, fridge magnets, dog bowls. Start removing old clothes, books and toys – remove personal items too, you may think that this adds to the appeal, but a viewer wants to really focus on the house and how they can make it personal to them.

Upgrade lighting – replace any missing bulbs, add candles to add to the ambiance

Bathrooms – buy a new toilet seat, shower curtain and towels if required and ensure you remove all cleaning products for the photographs

Make your home welcoming – buy fresh flowers, plants and fill the fruitbowl – this adds instant appeal to photographs.

So, if you have addressed all these issues, and your home looks beautiful  and pristine, not only will it look better in the photographs, but it will look better on the viewings too.

Take a look at 6, Dunstarn Gardens in Adel, which is featured on Rightmove, this is one of the best presented properties we have ever marketed!
