So you’ve decided to sell your slice of Mudgee real estate. Assuming you’ve followed our guides so far and have been busily adding value to your home, sprucing up your front yard, styling your bathroom, styling your kitchen, presenting your bedrooms beautifully, and impressing with a sparkling clean home, you may be wondering what the next step is. Well what’s the point of having a gorgeous home if nobody ever sees it? These 4 ways of attracting buyers to your home will ensure that your efforts in getting your house ready for sale will not go to waste.
- Begin by making a list of 10 (or more) things you love about your house, neighbourhood and community facilities. Give a copy of the list to your real estate agent to use in their marketing of your home and to help answer buyer queries. You may even like to compile your own booklet to leave out at inspections with photographs of your house in different lightings and seasons, as well as information about the area and your list of top 10 attractions. This will give buyers something to browse through, and likely help them form a deeper connection with your home.
- By making it easy for people to inspect your home, you won’t miss out on the busy buyer who may rule houses out of consideration if they’re simply too hard to view. Issuing the listing real estate agent with their own key or allowing them to contact you at short notice with a potential buyer will optimise your chances of finding the right buyer sooner.
- Spend you marketing dollars wisely! In today’s digital age many buyers will begin their search online. Quality professional photography and video production will be the first thing online buyers see, and will set your house apart from the other hundreds of online listings bringing more buyers to your home sooner.
- Use a picture signboard with high quality internal photography at the front of your home to attract those buyers who like to do their own reconnaissance before contacting the agent directly.
Remember, your best offer will likely come in the first 4 to 6 weeks of your house going on the market. Make the most of its ‘new listing’ status by ensuring you’re doing all you can to attract Mudgee buyers to your door, and once you’ve secured that first inspection, be sure to follow our guide for staging your home for sale.
