So your property has been on the market for a while, all the media you’re reading is saying properties are being snapped up left, right and centre, so why isn’t your place selling? This is a common question but the answers aren’t that much of a mystery.
Here’s a look at four of the most common reasons why properties don’t sell.
Poor photographs of your property
Most people’s first impression of your home will not be up close and personal, it will be through the photographs you present in listings. To really put your home a cut above the competition, it’s vital to capture your home’s best side on film. One of the easiest ways to get this done is to hire a professional photographer to really make your home look like a star.
This means you can get crisp, clear, stunning imagery right through your photoset. A higher-quality set of photos is more likely to attract buyers, and is a must when selling.
You haven’t invested appropriately in marketing and advertising
Marketing your property is an essential part of achieving a successful sale. If your property isn’t selling, have you spent enough on the marketing plan to ensure your property has had maximum exposure in the market?
A bad first impression
You only get once chance to make a first impression so you want to make a good one. With competition high in the market, to help make your property stand out from the crowd, and attract more buyers you need to spend time styling your property to sell.
Property styling isn’t as hard as you think. It’s all about employing design and presentation techniques to create a visual marketing tool which will increase the potential of your home attracting the most amount of buyers and ultimately a quicker and more lucrative sale.
You haven’t priced your home to sell?
Your home is probably your most valuable asset, so making the most out of the sale is paramount to you. But to sell your home in a reasonable time frame, the price must be right, it must reflect what the market is prepared to pay for it.
