How to prepare your Swindon property for a viewing

Top tips from Home Finders on how to dress your house to impress potential buyers.

If you are looking for a new home in Swindon, the viewing is one of the most exciting parts of the home buying process.

You’ve done your research, you’ve narrowed your search down to a few properties, now it’s time to find out if this particular property ticks all the boxes and to ask your Home Finders specialist any relevant questions.

If you have a property to sell, getting viewings right will be key if you want to sell your home in Swindon quickly and for the best possible price.

Of course, you'll want to make sure the whole of your property and its exterior are in tip-top condition, but there are some parts of the home which deserve extra special attention.

Here are some tips from Home Finders.

The kitchen

The focal point of many homes, the kitchen is likely to be of high interest to prospective buyers. Therefore, you need to make sure it’s clean, tidy and that all its best features are accentuated as much as possible. It could also be worthwhile to upgrade some features, do some painting and fix anything that has seen better days.

The garden

Outdoor space is popular with pretty much every demographic of property buyers. However much space you have, make sure it is in great condition for viewings. Adding some potted plants, mowing the lawn, clearing away debris, installing lights and creating an inviting seating area can all help to create the feel of an outdoor oasis that buyers won't be able to resist.

The bathroom

Another key space in which buyers won't settle for second best. When staging your bathroom, think about a luxury hotel room and how the bathroom is presented - less is more, fresh towels are a must and candles can help to make the space feel relaxing. Designer taps and chrome heated towel rails are also sure-fire hits with many purchasers.

If you get these three key parts of your property spot-on for viewings, the chances of buyers being impressed will increase significantly.
