Presentation of your property is very important in achieving the highest possible price. This is similar to detailing a car before you sell it. The emotional appeal required to stir the spirit of the buyers is unlikely to be generated by a poorly presented property. And a neglected building site sends out “warning signals” to prospective buyers. As a buyer awaits to enter your front door the first thing you dont want them seeing is maintenance.

So it is important to do whatever is possible to have your property looking its absolute best on inspection day, some of the turn offs for buyers include:

  • Animal odours in the house

  • Evidence of damp or moisture in the walls

  • Cigarette or strong food odours

  • Doors, windows or gates that stick

  • Cracked glass

  • Too much furniture or personal belongings cluttering the space

  • Stained carpet

  • Pets jumping & barking

To improve the presentation, seek an outside opinion, maybe a friend or your agents however dont take things said personally as many of these problems can be fixed over a weekend for little expense.
