VIDEO: How to make a good first impression

When it comes to selling your home, making a good first impression is vital. Here are our top five things to avoid when trying to entice prospective buyers:

 

1. Poor light

Light and warmth are two of the most important factors to attract a potential buyer, especially in the colder months. Make sure your home is well-lit: open your curtains or blinds and if there is low natural light, turn on some lamps. 

2. Noise 

Most people expect their home to be a place of peace and tranquillity. Avoid organising viewings at a busy time of the day and if you have noisy neighbours, avoid the time of day they are usually at home.

3. Smells

Persistent smells such as pets, cigarettes or pungent food can be a real turn-off for prospective buyers. Avoid these smells by taking your dog for a walk, lighting some candles and opening a window. 

4. Clutter

Clutter is not only distracting, but it could indicate that the property does not have adequate storage. Make sure your home is tidy when viewers arrive and if all else fails, self-storage is a great solution.

5. Untidy gardens

The first thing most visitors see is the exterior of your home. Make sure your bins are tidy and your garden is well-maintained. No one likes an overgrown, messy garden.
