What is it that makes a buyer choose one property over another? This is a question that many sellers ask themselves, particularly when their property is the one that was passed over. The truth is that it could be any number of uncontrollable factors such as block size, location and house layout. However, when two similar properties are competing for one buyer, it often comes down to the simple case of presentation.
Over summer, sales listings tend to increase. This is not unusual in Mandurah as it is a seasonal city that offers a fantastic summer lifestyle. This means that buyers have more choice, whilst sellers face increased competition. That’s why it is so important to present your home in it’s best possible light.
Most sellers are very good at presenting their homes in a clean and tidy fashion, however sometimes it’s the little things that make the difference. Buyers are usually looking for a property that needs the least amount of work to do. Just by repairing any chipped walls and giving them a lick of paint, you could increase the appeal of your home and make it stand out above competitors. Buyers are often looking for any excuse to knock down the asking price, by eliminating these factors, you also give yourself the best chance of higher sales price.
