What To Do If Your House Isn’t Attracting Buyers

If you want to sell your home, you need to attract buyers. Therefore, attracting buyers is one of the most integral components involved with selling your home. If you are struggling to attract buyers to your home, don’t panic, because there are steps you can take to make your home attractive to buyers.

At Stevens Property Sales and Lettings, we’re pleased to say we have helped many homeowners attract buyers and make sales, so if you are looking for support in and around Ashford, get in touch and we will be happy to help you out.

Make sure your home is suitably priced

One of the first steps you must take to attract buyers is to ensure your house is suitably priced. If your home is priced too high, you will put people off and very few buyers will have an interest in what you offer. If you price your home at too low a level, you will get plenty of interest, but you will lose out on money if you sell at this price.

Therefore, it is vital that you price your home accordingly and the best way to do this is to hire a professional to value your property. This provides you with accurate information to set a price for your home. While many people look at market values, your home may not be in the same condition as the average home in the local area, so it is best to know what your home is worth and use this information to justify the price you sell your home at.

Another thing you can do to sell your home in an effective manner is to have high-quality images taken of your property. Hiring a professional photographer will help you gain an advantage when prospective buyers are scrolling through online property portals.

Great images help to sell homes

There are many homes clamouring for attention from buyers, but great images will make it more likely a buyer will stop and pay attention to your listing. A skilled photographer knows how to stage your home for the best images, they will ensure the images are properly lit and they will accentuate the best qualities of your home.

When you have great images of your property, it makes sense to share them as best you can. Social media platforms thrive on fantastic images, so you should use these images to promote your house on social media. Sharing images and a link to the property listing will ensure that your home gets viewed by as many people as possible and you may find that this puts your home in front of prospective buyers who wouldn’t have found your home any other way.

Another issue to consider if you aren’t attracting buyers to your home is whether your estate agent is doing enough to support you. If they aren’t, or you don’t have an estate agent in place, consider getting in touch with us.
