First impressions: Make them count!

Everyone knows that you don’t get a second chance at a first impression! The first impression that your house makes could be the For Sale board outside your house or your first image on Rightove but both are as important as the other! Your first impression is vital to secure viewings in the first week or your property will start to fall down the pile of options available to buyers.

  • Make sure your agents ‘For Sale’ board is tidy, clean and upright.
  • Make sure your photographs show your property off to it’s full potential. Instruct an estate agent that uses professional photography (like we do at Hazelwoods!
  • Take the estate agents advice – Our director Harriet is always on hand to give our clients tips and advice on how to use your furniture and space to impress your viewers! #toptips
Okay, so now you’ve got some viewings booked, make sure your home lives up to expectations and doesn’t disappoint! Buyers are normally just as excited to view your house as your are to let them in, so make sure you don’t let them down…

  • When they arrive at your house…
  • Make sure it looks loved and tidy. Prune the garden, touch up the paintwork, move the dustbins and sweep up the leaves.
  • When they walk through the door…
  • They want to be able to visualize their life there. Move any personal clutter like abandoned shoes and coats, personal photographs and general bits and bobs. #smellytrainers
  • When they are busy walking around…
  • Make sure your house is welcoming, well-lit and warm. You want viewers to imagine it as home so create an inviting and cosy environment.
  • The Big Impression…
  • The biggest impressions are made in the kitchen and bathrooms. An untidy or unclean kitchen/bathroom can be detrimental and leave a very negative lasting memory. A lick of fresh paint may only cost £50 but could cost you £5,000 off your asking price for a “Kitchen that needs replacing” as it looks a little tired. #thatonewiththedirtykitchen
Keep it fresh this spring!! - Fresh flowers never go amiss and keep your home looking fresh and looked after
Make the most of your homes curves and edges. Make your first impression a lasting and positive one! #offeraccepted #sold
