Do’s and Don’t for a successful Leicester property viewing

Property viewings are essential when selling your Leicester home. The more pairs of eyes you have looking around your property the better. Property viewings might sound like a daunting task at first, but if you prepare your Leicester home correctly and follow the relevant advice, there is no reason why your viewings won’t go down a storm and make you Leicester property stand out from the rest. To make sure you’re ready we’ve put together our top useful tips to convert your property viewing!



Do let in the light

Let in as much light as possible and let your home shine. Open curtains and blinds, make features of mirrors and where possible decorate with light and bright furniture. A dark and uninspiring place isn’t going to sell, especially in a competitive Leicester property market.


Do get rid of the junk

By decluttering your property in every room, all rooms in your house can appear so much more spacious. No matter whether your rooms are large or small, decluttering can make them seem much bigger than they actually are. Of course, if they perceive the space as bigger, they’re more likely to be interested in moving the process forward into the stages where they hold a serious interest.


Do sacrifice your parking space

If your home comes with an allocated parking space, leave it free for prospective buyers to use. It’s convenient and offers an experience that’s closer to the reality of what it’s like to live in your home. Plus, they won’t be stressed from finding a parking space before looking around your property.




Don’t neglect your outdoor spaceDo’s and Don’t for a successful Leicester property viewing

Many buyers in Leicester have outside space as one of their top priorities. So, whether you’ve got a huge garden or a relatively small one, make sure the buyers knows about it and can see the benefits of it immediately. Make sure the grass is cut, flowers are neat and if you have space for outdoor dining, get a table out.


Don’t be too sentimental

When selling your property you can’t be too attached to your home. You need to present your home to sell, whether that be decluttering, toning down the décor or rearranging how you use the space. People need to be able to envision themselves in your property, so you may need to change up a few things in order to get the sale you want.


Don’t forget the importance of an estate agent

When it comes to a property viewing on your home, it’s always best to get an agent to do it – they know exactly what it takes to sell a property. Afterall, they do it day in, day out. They understand how to structure the viewing, negotiate any difficult questions and highlight the benefits of your home.
