The curb appeal

You’ve probably heard this time and time again, but when it comes to selling a property, getting the curb appeal right is crucial. This is because the first thing potential buyers see if the exterior of the property, and this is what they use to form an opinion about it. If you want to ensure that potential buyers enter your property feeling positive about it, it’s essential to get the curb appeal just right. This means ensuring that the paintwork is smart. The garden is perfectly landscaped. As well as that, any problems, such as cracks in the pavement, are dealt with.

The energy efficiency

How energy efficient is your home - could it be more energy efficient? If the answer is yes, then it’s a good idea to change that. You see, many buyers are looking for properties that will save them money by being energy efficient. To determine how energy efficient your property is, call in a specialist to create an energy efficiency report. This will be able to tell you what areas need to be improved, and the best ways to go about making these improvements. Say, for instance; you have a conservatory. It may be that it’s badly insulated and a replacement conservatory roof is needed to make it an energy efficient space.

The decor

Household decor might be easy to change, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t put buyers off of a property. Because the truth is, it can do. A property that’s decorated in bright colours can sometimes look darker than it is. No one wants a dark home, and so, buyers may be put off by this. However, if you were to redecorate in light shades, you may get a more positive response from potential buyers.

The health of the property

Last but not least, if you want your home to sell quickly and for a good price, it’s important that it looks well cared for. The health of a property can be a big turn-off for potential buyers as if a house looks ‘unhealthy’. An 'unhealthy' house is somewhere that has damage or damp and mold. Making it look as if it hasn't been well taken care of. This then makes potential buyers wonder what else could be wrong with the property.
