You’ve made the decision to sell your drop dead gorgeous 4 bedroom home in the city home decided on a move to the country where the children have village school life – you can enjoy long dog walks, peaceful evenings, village fates and even perhaps have a hen for those nutrient rich fresh eggs.
Having the perfect brochure to send out a moments notice is vital to attract that right audience that will actually buy your home. People love beautiful things
Now that you’ve made the big decision there’s a way you maximise your changes of a sale. So what does make the perfect brochure to sell your home?
We have a 26 point checklist we apply it everytime to each of our properties. Here’s out top 4 things. (ps: If you are on the market you can change these now)
Recommendation number 1 – Balance of words and pictures.
I visited a stunning home the other day with 17 rooms in the house. The brochure had just 4 pictures! Pictures speak a thousand words and should contain the very best rooms of the house, a perfect front picture and an amazing garden shot. No toilet pictures are welcome here, leave those for online. The words should be succinct and lively and set the toem of the property. A funky modern terraced should be jumpy and bright a classical 4 bedroom Victorian should be reflected in the words. Remember your buyer. What will they expect?
Recommendation number 4 —Floorplan
The floorplan must contain the sizes. There are many buyers that turn straight to the floorplan. Show them easily the sizes. If you make it too difficult to make a comparsion or see the way they could live, they’ll move on quickly. 2016 is the year of instant gratification, make sure you are helping them make the right decision about your home.
Recommendation number 14 – Bedroom numbers and names.
Always always call the Master bedroom the Master Bedroom (not bedroom 1) , Its where the new homeowners will spend a lot of time, so it should sound grand and epic too. They don’t sleep in bedroom 1 they sleep in the ‘house Master’. It is then clear at first glance where you will be in respect to your guests/children. (Don’t forget t ae sure the Flooplan also has this description too)
Recomendation number 19 – Avoid clichés Here’s an example:
Fitted base and wall units
Tiled to wall and floors
Door leading to
Double glazed window to side and rear elevation
Why not try:
Stunning handfinished kitchen with plenty of useful storage solutions
Stone tiles in a honey colour make this bathroom iresistable after a long day
A view of the garden swing tucked in the corner plus you can also see the field that stretched a far from this room. A perfectly peaceful retreat.
Your buyers will love the fact it’s worth reading, very different from what they will be used too.
