The phrase, “you only get one chance to make a first impression” not only applies when you meet someone for the first time, but is equally applicable when it comes to marketing a property.  An estate agent’s marketing photos aim to present a property in its best possible light.  However despite the majority of property searches starting on line through agents’ own websites ( or other property listing sites buyers very often carry out a “drive by” prior to making arrangements to view a property inside.  To turn a drive by into a full viewing it is important that the outside of a property is presented in the best possible light.  At this time of the year a few simple steps can make a big difference.  Make sure that any leaves and other winter debris are swept up and cleared away.  If possible give the grass a light trim; most lawns in South Devon continue to grow throughout the winter months, as well as cleaning off any accessible paintwork, doors, and window frames etc.  In short show that you have given your property some love!  Finally if your “for sale” sign has succumbed to the recent gales give your agent a call and ask for it to be put back up-right.
