Posted on 1st November 2022
It's no secret that letting an estate agent conduct viewings on your property is the best way to attract serious buyers.
However, there may be times when you want or need to do a viewing yourself.
In this blog post, we will discuss the reasons why you might want to do a viewing on your own property, and how you should go about doing it.
We will also take a look at what an estate agent would do during a viewing, and how you can prepare your property for potential buyers.
Why is it best to let your Estate Agent conduct the viewings?
There are a few reasons why it is always best to let your Estate Agent conduct the viewings for the viewers.
Firstly, Estate Agents are professionals and have been trained in how to show properties. They know how to highlight the positive features of your property and downplay any negative aspects.
Secondly, Estate Agents have the experience and knowledge to answer any questions that potential buyers might have.
And finally, Estate Agents are impartial and objective when it comes to your property.
This means that they can give an honest opinion of your property to potential buyers, which can help to speed up the selling process.
However, if you decide to conduct the viewings yourself, the most important thing to remember is that you are representing yourself and your property. First impressions are everything, so it is important to be professional, polite and helpful.
Be prepared to answer any questions the buyer may have about the property, and be knowledgeable about the area in which the property is located.
It is also important to be flexible with your schedule, as buyers may want to view the property at times that are not convenient for you.
When showing the property, make sure that all areas are clean and tidy.
Remove any personal belongings from view, and make sure that all rooms are well-lit. It is also a good idea to have a few key selling points in mind, and to highlight these during the viewing.
For example, if you have recently renovated the kitchen or bathroom, make sure that these areas are given extra attention.
Once the viewing is over, it is important to get feedback from the buyer.
Ask them what they thought of the property, and if there is anything that they would change.
This feedback can be used to improve your property for future viewings.
Preparing your property for viewings can be a daunting task, but it is important to remember that you are ultimately in control of the situation.
By following the tips above, you can ensure that your property is presented in its best light, and that you are able to attract serious buyers.
