Who wants to buy an igloo?
The clocks have gone back, the nights have drawn in and British Summer Time is officially over for another year.
The early mornings have a distinct chill about them, not to mention the recent fog, and weren’t England absolutely rubbish at the Rugby World Cup?
But it’s not all gloomy out there folks. The market remains strong and we still sell plenty of properties throughout the autumn months.
There are several seasonal things you can do to really make your home stand out to autumn buyers.
If you have a garden clear any leaves which may have taken residence in it following the seasonal winds of change.
First impressions count, and if the first thing viewers have to do is to wade through a path filled with leaves it probably won’t endear them to the property.
Where possible we try to arrange viewings in daylight. This is so people can see your property in its best light.
Talking of light, it’s not the end of the world (just the end of the day) to do evening viewings.
Try to make sure your property is well lit. Replace busted bulbs, switch on lamps when you’re expecting viewings and aim for bright, inviting rooms for prospective buyers to walk round.
Final tip – be mindful of the temperature in your property.
Unless you’re an Eskimo you don’t want to buy an igloo and saunas are great but you wouldn’t want to spend too long in one.
Either ends of a thermometer make viewers uncomfortable and they tend to be focussed on leaving the property as quickly as possible rather than buying it.
Thanks for reading and have a safe and enjoyable Bonfire Night.
Terry’s Top Tip: We all know how good a spring clean feels once it’s done. How about doing the same in autumn? It’ll get your property in tip top shape.
