Have you just placed your home on the property market? Is it ready for its first property inspection?
When presenting your home for sale it goes without saying that you want to make a good impression on potential buyers and this usually means fixing anything that is broken, and cleaning up around the house and in the yard.
Street appeal is the first thing you should pay attention to, as your front yard is your home’s biggest advertisement.
Buyers will create an instant opinion on your property based on aspects such as the fence or how well the front yard is kept and maintained. Mowing lawns and raking up leaves are absolute musts before inspection day.
Next up, you need to take a good look at the inside of your home and give it a thorough clean up. Clear away clutter on benches and tables, or any unsightly items that might be stashed in corners. Try to make the property feel as fresh and clean as possible. If there are any leaking taps or broken lights, these should be fixed before inspection day too.
Right before the property inspection you might also consider creating a nice atmosphere in your home by opening curtains and windows and putting fresh flowers out. If it’s a cold winter’s day it can also be nice to have the heating on, or having fresh baked treats left out for guests.
When preparing your property, put yourself in the buyer’s shoes and try to imagine what first impressions your property will give them.
