Expert advice on how vendors can be more successful at property viewings


Bradley Ward, Director at Gordon & Co shares his six practical and proven ways.

Selling your home shouldn’t be hard. But we all know that finding the right advice can be tough. You want to sell your property, and you want to do it in the most effective way. That’s why I’ve put together these six excellent ways to be more successful at every viewing. Saving you time and a headache.

Presentation matters

So your walls and doors have seen better days and could do with a new lick of paint. Did you know that cracks, stains, and broken bathroom fittings turn potential buyers off more than 60% of the time? There's never been a better time to give your home a little TLC.

Choose the right estate agents

Using a knowledgeable estate agency will help you sell your property. They show people around homes every day and know the property market well. Let them show potential buyers around whilst you sit back and enjoy a cuppa.

What made you love your home?

Remember back to when you first set eyes on your potential new home - what made you enticed to buy? From your beautiful countertops to nearby shops. These are fantastic points to make at property viewings.

Get rid of the mess

On a normal day, it’s easy for the plates to pile up and the kids’ toys to be scattered everywhere. Buyers think more fondly of a house that's tidy so that they can imagine living there. You might even want to store some bigger items away so they can get a real sense of the space. Either way, a tidy up is a great idea.

Take High-Quality Photos

Everyone loves well-taken, high-quality photographs. Especially when it comes to buying a new home. Keep images wide, crisp and focused on your homes key selling features. A good estate agent should get this done for you.
