The emergence of the internet has transformed the property market, but it has also provided buyers with the chance to learn more about a property and area. Savvy buyers are carrying out more research before they make an offer on a home, and vendors should do their best to help them out.
At Austin Property Services, we are pleased to say we have helped many vendors connect with buyers, selling their home at a fair price. We believe there is a lot you can do to make your home more appealing and to make sure buyers are interested in what you have to offer. After all, while there is a lot of information that can be gleaned online, this is general information. As a property owner and participant in the local community, you have a chance to provide relevant information that buyers really want to know.
Think about what buyers need to know about your home
When it comes to your property, you should be upfront about what your home has to offer. Think about what is important to buyers, and be ready to offer this style of information, including:
- The space available in your home
- The number of electrical sockets at home and the condition of your electrical network
- The condition of pipes and plumbing
- If your home is soundproofed or not
- The condition of drains at your home
These are all important factors a buyer considers and if you believe the condition of these aspects will impress a prospective buyer, share the information. It is vital that you express the positive nature of your home so if there is something that is likely to impress buyers, don’t hold back in talking about these benefits.
Provide information about the local area too
Buyers are going to research the local area and there is a lot of information they can take on board. If the buyer has children of school age, they will study school catchment areas and reviews. However, while the Ofsted findings are of interest to prospective buyers, they also want to gain insight from people who have kids at the school.
If you or someone you know can share insight into what the school is really like, be prepared to pass this information on. If you know of local clubs or community groups that you think will be of interest to the buyer, let them know too. A lot of different factors are involved in determining whether a home is right for someone or not, and the information you provide may make all the difference between a buyer making an offer or not.
When it comes to making the right impact on buyers, be sure to rely on Austin Property Services. We are pleased to say we have helped many local vendors sell their home and if you are looking for guidance and support from local professionals, we are here to help, so please get in touch.
