Sell Your Home Fast with our Top 5 Viewing Preparation Tips

First impressions count, that’s why wowing buyers during viewings is the key to selling success. With over 245 years of amassed experience in the property industry, Jones Robinson have put together our top 5 tips to help sell your home fast!!


1)      Make sure your home sparkles – No, we don’t mean with diamante décor, we mean sparkling clean! One of the biggest turn offs for potential buyers is a dirty house. Be sure every room of the house has been thoroughly scrubbed and polished before viewings begin.


2)      Keep the décor light and airy – Bright colours and complicated colours scheme don’t float everyone’s boat. Painting rooms in light neutral colours will ensure buyers are not put off by your unique taste in décor and it’ll make rooms appear larger and lighter. It’s a win-win really!


3)      Appeal to all the senses – Your home may look fantastic, but does it smell fantastic? Nothing is more off-putting than a smelly house. Decorate with flowers or have freshly baked goods in the kitchen to give your home an appealing smell. Because smells help us form memories, a good smelling home is likely to stick in buyers minds for all the right reasons.


4)      Minimise the furniture – Removing any unnecessary furniture and keeping the accessories and knick-knacks to a minimum will not only make spaces appear bigger, it’ll also help draw attention the property’s best features. Showing buyers spacious rooms with minimal furniture makes it easier for them to picture where their own furniture could go.


5)      Give your home some curb appeal – Making sure your exterior is up to scratch is key to creating a great first impression. Buyers will be put off by an unruly or untidy front garden and will be equally displeased with the prospect of repainting an exterior so make sure all walls, gates, fences get a fresh coat of paint.


Now you’ve got your home viewing ready, it’s time to think about whose going to carry out the viewings. Put your sale in a safe pair of hands and contact Jones Robinson. Our sales team regularly receive 5 star reviews and boast a success rate of over 90%!
