Property Selling-Make an Impact Before Anyone Steps In
Everyone strives to ensure that their homes is up to scratch before selling it but for anyone that is selling their home, the image is not all that matters. Psychologist argue that humans analyze and make up their minds about another person within the first 15 seconds of meeting them. And so by this logic, the same is true when it comes to home viewing.
So, even before they get through that door, it is most likely that the buyers 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.
The first thing that you need to do is getting in the mind of the buyer by thinking like them. 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.
Why House Preview is Important
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.
To ensure that the interior of your home is ideal for presentation to the viewers, you need to hire a home inspector to make sure that your home is more attractive. Once everything is camera ready, take pictures that show the home in flattering angle and make sure every photo is well lit.
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. Also take the time to clear out the gutters because this is something that leaps out at the viewer.
There is nothing that you can do to make the area of your property any better, you could do some market research and identify houses that are similar to yours and pin point their good and bad features. 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.
