Property Selling-Make an Impact Before Anyone Steps In
People are always struggling to do whatever they can just to make sure that their home is in good condition before they can put on sale sign on their property, but for anyone that is selling their home, the image is just a fraction of everything that matters. Psychologist argue that humans analyze and make up their minds about another person within the first 15 seconds of meeting them. This logic is significant when it comes to the viewing of a house.
Even before they can step inside the home, it is very likely that a buyer will 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.
What you need to do first is getting in the mind of the buyer by thinking as they do. Take an objective view of your home and keep in mind that the buyers will have already made up their mind about viewing your home or not before you can receive the realtor’s call.
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.
The the only way to ensure that your interior house photos appeal is by hiring a home inspector to give your house a once over, and also ensure that it is more than superficially attractive. Once everything is camera ready, take pictures that show the home in flattering angle and make sure every photo is well lit.
Create a Sidewalk Appeal
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 the answer is no, then you have a lot to do to ensure that it becomes a yes. Decluter the area around your sidewalk and avoid including your taste to it as you will be pleasing as many prospective buyers as possible. It is equally important that you clear out the gutters as this is something that your viewer will be quick to note.
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. Comparing your house with others can give you a better idea of what your house is missing and especially if you are strolling to sell 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.
