If you don’t attract buyers to your property, you can’t progress, and it is vital vendors understand the importance of making a positive impression during the property listing phase.
At Holmes Estate Agents, we are always happy to assist vendors in selling their home, and we have helped draw many buyers to a home. If your house isn’t attracting buyers, here are some tips to improve the process.
Set an accurate price for your house
If you don’t value your home accurately, you will struggle to attract buyers. If your house has a low price, buyers will like what is on offer, but you will not receive the income you deserve. If your property has a high price, buyers will not click through or take an interest.
Vendors must be aware that buyers set a minimum and maximum price for homes when they search online. If your home 's price falls between these figures, willing buyers will not see it. Therefore, you could minimise the volume of buyers who see your home. Ideally, you want as many buyers to have access to your home as possible, so make sure your house has an accurate price.
It makes sense to call on an expert to value your home. The condition of your house is essential, but other factors influence the price a buyer is willing to pay for a home. The level of supply and demand for homes in your area is an issue. If there are many homes for sale close to you, buyers have more choice, and this means they will make a lower offer on your property.
Make sure your home stands out on property listings
Your home has to compete with many other houses online, and bear in mind that many buyers will scroll through listings until something stands out. If you want your house to be the property that stands out, you need to hire a professional photographer to take photographs of your home.
A professional photographer knows how to stage your property to maximise its impact, and they will remove poor quality images. When you only have a limited time to make a strong impression, it is essential you grab attention for all the right reasons. A great image or series of images will ensure your home connects with prospective buyers.
It is also essential you choose an experienced estate agent who knows your local area. If your home hasn’t attracted much attention yet, it may be down to your agent not doing their job. Upgrading to a more experienced and skilled estate agent could help you sell your home.
