This is a popular phrase that Estate Agents up and down the country hear along with,
‘it needs freshening up but there’s no point if we’re selling’
‘the wallpaper is dated but the new buyer will want to redecorate anyway’
Now, did you know that these excuses are the easiest way to ensure your house stick on the market longer?
Think about your buyer, what buyer wouldn’t want the house that is ready to move into? Your buyer may be too busy, work too long hours, stretching their budgets to buy, have young children, may be downsizing for ease.
ALL of these buyers don’t want to worry about redecorating immediately.
The housing market is flooded with houses for sale, so make your buyer’s decision easy and freshen up your paintwork and remove your dated wallpaper. It’s an easy fix and an easy reason for someone to say YES!

Ps: don’t forget you want to give them a reason to buy, not a reason to leave.
Pps: You’ll also get higher offers if they feel there’s less to do, and they always, always, over estimate how much something like decorating can cost!
