Your Property Through Another’s Eyes
Oliver Miles of Oliver Miles Estate Agents explains a vital step a seller can make now to help achieve a successful property sale once the coronavirus danger has passed.
Spring has sprung, the daffodils have bloomed and it should be a perfect time to sell your property. Thoughts are to stay at home and save lives but this might be the ideal time to at least start planning your next move - and particularly the sale of your home. There are positive moves you can make to prepare your property for the market – when the threat of Covid 19 is well and truly over.
Why not use these weeks ahead to take a step back and try to see your property through a future buyer’s eyes?
Estate agents have always talked about kerb appeal – how well a property looks to a passer-by and this is important. Particularly important right now is “screen appeal”. The majority of potential buyers will be viewing your property via a mobile or desktop device and not by physically passing bay. On screen you have the chance to present your property at its very best regardless of adverse weather and other detrimental factors. Photographs of your property can be taken on a lovely bright day with the sun in just the right direction – and with the windows sparkling clean. Your garden can look its best with no cars in the drive or recycling bins in the way. In other words, you have control of what people see on screen in a way that cannot always be promised when someone is randomly driving past at any time of day or night.
So, why not make full use of this marketing opportunity? Remember, if a buyer doesn’t think you are proud of your property, they probably won’t be interested in buying it. Your property deserves to look its best it needs to make a great impression.  
At Oliver Miles we can advise you how to make your property look the best it can on screen for when that critical buyer is searching online. We understand how vital it is to create that excellent first impression.
