Best times of day
When it comes to viewings on your home, we will discuss with you the best times of the day & week to present your property and do our best to steer appointments around these times. Considerations may need to be made. These could include your normal weekly routines, parking availability in your street and traffic levels, children and pets, light levels and garden aspects. We will talk with you about all of these aspects prior to the viewing, ensuring that the appointment time works for everyone.
Should you become aware of anything that may be in the way of the viewing, please let us know. We can conduct the appointment without you, but only at your agreement.
First impressions are important, so as well as improving your home in regards to DIY and painting as above, it is important to ensure it is in the best state for showing to your prospective buyers on the day. This is to ensure it appeals to as many people as possible.
On the day of the viewing, ensure your property is tidy. Clear away dishes, sweep the floors, make sure the garden and hall are tidy for inviting people in to your home. It is advisable to leave pets with a neighbour or family member.
Turn on the heating during the colder months, and put your house lights on. Air out the house by opening the windows, and ensure that you have not smoked or cooked anything with a strong smell prior to a viewing.
If you have a parking space, park your car somewhere else, allowing the viewer to use yours; this will add to their experience.
