A few days ago I was emptying out the water from some plant pots. As I poured the water down the drain I heard an ominous gurgling sound and an unpleasant aroma arose. I decided to investigate so removed the grid which stops the debris entering the drain and reached down. As I withdrew my hand containing what I thought was a bunch of leaves, imagine my surprise when I realised that what I had in my hand was a frog! I laid him down carefully and a short while later he had found a pile of leaves to hide in.
Having recovered from the shock it got me thinking that sometimes a sale needs rescuing. When we put a property on the market we expect an initial flurry of interest and if that doesn’t result in an offer we expect a regular stream of viewings as new buyers start looking. Eventually there may come a point when we start to wonder why there have been no offers or why the viewings have dried up. You will probably also wonder what you can do about this. There can be any number of reasons why a property doesn’t sell – price, location, negative factors such as a busy road.
One reason why a property may be struggling to attract viewings and buyers is the presentation. It is very easy to become oblivious to your surroundings – think of the Febreze advert with the young man who has gone “noseblind”. Millions of people search the property portals Rightmove and Zoopla over the Christmas period so now is a great time to think about how your property looks. If you are already on the market it can be part of a relaunch campaign. If you haven’t yet gone on the market then you can ensure that your property is ready to hit the ground running when you do.
