Ever heard the saying “A picture paints a thousand words” - Well the same is true when marketing and selling your home and it starts with using a professional photographer. Just look at the difference above. In the first example you wouldn't even know there was a pool and in the second now you can see the french doors and air conditioner. Also worth noting is the light in the professional pictures.
If you present your home beautifully so that it is looking polished and sharp, then people will be more interested in viewing it rather than if it is poorly presented.
When it comes to selling a property, ultimately “it’s a numbers game. The more people I get through your property, the more likely I am to get another offer and therefore potentially get you more interest. And when everyone wants the same thing, guess what? Yes , they pay more for it.
In order to make the best first impression, I will make suggestions and recommendations which allows you to tackle the task yourself or to consult with an experienced person or specialist to do for you.
The extent of the work might entail a complete restyle along with some minor renovations or improvements, or in some cases, a partial restyle might be all that is required.
One useful tip is to minimise the items and remove clutter in the property to produce clean, surfaces which showcase the property in its best light and that includes floors and walls!
You will reap the rewards if you put in the effort and present your home like a show home. It may be a good strong offer before auction day or a very competitive auction with many serious buyers on the day. And, if you are not auctioning it could become a ‘silent auction’ where multiply buyers are encouraged to put forward their very best offer! All these scenarios increase the chances of you maximising your sale price and getting the highest amount possible.
Remember, presentation offline (at the house) is your responsibility. But presentation online, in the paper, on brochures, signage, post cards and even how your agent dresses, speaks and negotiates is all presentation too. The good news is it’s still your responsibility and you have control over these things, as you always get to choose the method and the Agent.
