If you asked one of the John German team “What would be your top tip to sell my property?” you may be given advice along these lines:
“You should dress your house ready for marketing and viewings, this will help maximise the interest when launching the property onto the market. The house needs to appeal to a new owner, so keep things simple, neutral & uncluttered.” Rob Clark, Branch Manager – West Bridgford.
“First impressions count! Paint & dress your entrance door, use topiary trees/hanging baskets, and keep your home clean & tidy.” Julie Gomersall, Sales Negotiator – Stafford.
“My top tip when selling a property is to ensure your home is clean, tidy and smells fresh so it looks its best from the outset.” Emily Baines, Sales Negotiator – Burton upon Trent.
“Before going on the market, take time to start at your front door, and walk through your home as a purchaser might do, suddenly you will see or smell things that originally you didn’t, quite scary but really useful to do and can make the difference to a purchaser viewing your home for the first time.” Sarah Hill MNAEA, Sales Director – Lichfield.
“Dress your home as nicely as possible. Keep it tidy. Try to think if you were looking around, would you be impressed? Don’t take to heart negative feedback but use it to work with.” Lauren Powley, Sales Negotiator – Loughborough.
“First impressions really do count, maximise your kerb appeal.” Charlie Hamilton, Senior Sales Negotiator – Stafford.
“I would recommend to anyone selling a property that first impressions are vital. Repair that creaky old gate and remove rusty furniture from the garden.” Sherry Flook, Senior Sales Negotiator – Uttoxeter.
A home which has been lovingly looked after and is presented for sale with pride by its owners is much more likely to attract a buyer quickly at the best price possible.
At John German Estate Agents we offer great advice on how best to present your home. We’ve also teamed up with Lemon and Lime Interiors; they provide a professional Home Staging Service. Here is a great article they’ve written about how home staging can really make a difference when selling a property: Staging For Sale – How effective is it?
"From valuation to completion of sale I was impressed with the professionalism of all the staff I had dealings with. I especially liked the very prompt feedback after each viewing. I had follow up emails right up to the end of sale and regular phone calls with updates."
