Kitchens Donât Sell Homes
Interesting tips about selling your home came from Property Industry Eyes Rosalind Renshaw
"Trendy kitchens donât necessarily sell homes, but dated ones do provided they are clean and tidy. Buyers almost always want to put in their own kitchens, but they need something they can live with for the first year. So, donât bother to update your kitchen if youâre planning to sell but do keep it ultra-clean, shine the sink and make sure the work surfaces are uncluttered. Obviously, if youâre a politician, you will have two kitchens so thatâs double the amount of work - sorry about that!"
Price Is Everything
Henry Pryor - "The BBCâs Favourite Property Expert" says
"If you are selling remember the three 'Pâs' - Price, Presentation and Promotion. Get the guide price realistic so that you attract buyers who think youâre serious. Make sure the property is clean and tidy, you want them to go away discussing how they will live in the place, not the rim around the bath! Finally, make sure you are promoting it - on the big property websites, with a sale board so people donât get lost coming to find it and your neighbours can tell their friends who always wanted to live in such a nice place.
