Getting Organised to Sell: At What Cost?
A buyer's first impression of your property can start them down the road to an offer or lead to a dead end. If your property lacks immediate visual appeal, it's likely to keep many prospective buyers from ever coming in to look around. Where there are minor cosmetic flaws (such as, peeling paint, cracked plaster, or missing knobs and handles), buyers will presume that your house may also have less visible structural problems.
Yet you don't have to spend a fortune to make your property more appealing to prospective buyers. With a little time and a little money you may improve the presentation of your property to maximise the appeal to your buyer.
LDG will help you identify those features that will increase your property's buyer appeal without costing a fortune.
If your property looks well cared for, buyers' assume that what they cannot see has also been well maintained.
The less you have to spend in getting your property ready for the market the better. Major improvements (such as a new roof, new cement work or a redesigned kitchen) rarely recoup their cost from a buyer. You are much better off making less expensive, minor cosmetic improvements to your house. These could include simple fixes such as repainting certain rooms, having carpeting or hardwood floors professionally cleaned, or trimming shrubs and edging the lawn.
