When it comes to selling or renting out your property, it's a good idea to know what potential buyers are looking for. As the leading letting agency in Sutton Coldfield, we know the exact aspects and features of your house a potential buyer will focus on.
There's nothing more eye-catching and appealing to a buyer than a light, bright house. With this in the forefront of their minds, it won't be the number of brand new light fixtures your buyers will be looking at; it will be the size of your windows.
The bigger the windows, the brighter the room, and as the natural light floods your kitchen, living room and bedrooms, your property will feel instantly uplifted and welcoming. If, however, you find yourself with smaller windows, placing mirrors around your property and using reflective paint instead of matt can greatly help reflect that natural light.
One of the best ways you can make a quick sell is by letting your potential buyers know their money is well invested. This means out with the old and in with the new. It's a massive turn off stepping into a property and mentally calculating how much work you will need to do inside, especially if your property is expensive in the first place.
To help, there are a few key areas buyers will look at such as your carpet, your kitchen surfaces, and your bathroom fixtures and fittings.
One clincher is the amount of storage space available. Nobody wants their property to be cluttered with boxes, suitcases and seasonal decorations. If cupboards and shelves are few and far between in your property, and you lack a cellar or decent sized loft space, you may find your property will take longer to sell than you first thought!
A garden, especially for families, is an important factor when people are considering a property. Having space outdoors where they can relax without being interrupted is a great selling point to any house. Your property can find itself very favourable if you have space both at the front and at the back of your property.
If you find yourself without either, a balcony or decking area can also greatly aid in your property's aesthetical appeal.
Above all else- and in some cases the only important feature- is easy, accessible and secure parking. Potential buyers will be looking at any off road parking in particular, any paid zones outside your property and, if parking is on road, how heavy traffic flow is.
If you can't help your property's parking space, focusing on your property's interior can be the difference between a fast or a slow sell.
