If you're planning to put your home on the market, be aware that today's savvy buyers look beyond a property's aesthetics to its practicality. Energy-efficient homes with excellent internet are key priorities on a potential home owner's list.
Other items on a buyer's checklist include, great central heating, modern safety features, a well maintained garden, private or off-street parking and location.
If, however, your house doesn't have a garden or parking, or isn't conveniently situated, don't worry. You can still attract a serious buyer (and achieve an excellent price) provided your boiler is in mint condition, your home has security devices and all appliances and fixtures comply with regulations; they are in full working order and supported by up to date certifications.
A tidy, freshly painted exterior and greenery also goes a long way in making your London property stand out. For handy property selling tips or help marketing your home please give us a call.
Aesthetics are important, but it's also important that appliances, electrical and plumbing fixtures be in compliance with current building codes and in full working order. Give potential buyers the impression that they will be able to move right in and start enjoying their new home, rather than spending time and money fixing it up.
