Conduct viewings

It’s easy to use the esale online estate agent services. One of the mistakes a lot of sellers make is, from the moment the doorbell rings, they take charge. They dictate what the viewer sees and when and, once they’ve done the tour, even look hopefully for some clues as to whether they’ve made a sale. However, in reality, it’s probably better to let the viewer decide. If you can persuade yourself to relax enough to listen rather than just gabble what you see as your home’s selling points, you might get a sense of what your viewers see as important – and each one will probably be different. Of course there’s a bit more to it than that. We’d also suggest the following:

1/ If you’re intending to share a viewing with a partner, try not to talk over each other or, worse, disagree. Remember, practice makes perfect so it’s always a good idea to do a dry run – or even test your selling skills with friends.

2/ As we’ve said before, we’d advise against the smell of baking bread or fresh coffee. Most of us are wise to that now and it’s a bit corny!

3/ If a buyer wants to look in a cupboard, behind the sofa where you’ve hidden all the kids’ toys or in the loft, don’t panic or refuse. As long as they don’t find a serious fault, they’re probably not going to mind discovering a hidden pile of washing. As long as your home is generally tidy, uncluttered and your personal effects have been put away, they’ll probably forgive you being human.

4/ If you live alone, it might be an idea to have a friend or relative with you while you conduct a viewing. Not only is it a good idea from a security point of view, you’ll have someone to give you feedback on how it went over a coffee afterwards!

5/ Don’t forget to smile! Remember, one of the first rules of business is that we tend to buy from people that we know, like and trust. You have about 15 minutes to come across as that sort of person – and the impact we make with our personality can make a big difference, particularly if a buyer has more than one property in mind. We’re not advocating a comedy routine but it’s a good idea to find out what you can about a possible buyer during the viewing. After all, most of us like talking about ourselves.

Good luck – and, as ever, if you think we can help, just give us a call.
