Research has shown that many potential homebuyers make up their mind if they want to view a property within ten seconds of looking at the outside! An agent’s glossy brochure, a gallery of on-line photos coupled with a clearly laid out floorplan all play a vital part in attracting potential buyers through a front door. However for many it is that key “drive by” look which sets the scene and is a crucial factor in deciding whether to view or not. With spring hopefully just around the corner there are a few simple steps a seller can take to significantly improve the conversion rate of lookers into viewers. A few minutes with a brush clearing away leaves and other windblown debris will make a world of difference. If possible tidying up any storm damaged bushes or fences will greatly improve a property’s spring time kerb appeal. While planting a few splashes of spring colour will add brightness and lift to any garden. A further crucial aspect of marketing at this time of the year is to make sure that as winter turns to spring your agent up-dates their outside photos. A bright shot in spring sunshine showcases any property better than one with a dreary grey winter sky. With Easter just a month way, now is the perfect time to place a property on to the market.
