Market Report

Category: Market Report

The highly trained sales team at N G Farah can give you professional advice on preparing your home for sale and/or lease to optimise your selling price or rental return.

First impressions are paramount: You really only get one chance to get this right, so the appearance of our home when you are trying to sell needs to be at its optimum. Things to look at in detail, the outside areas and lawn area, get rid of any eye sores that you could do without. Usually a good idea to freshen up with a coat of paint it can do wonders for making a home look new and fresh.

Repairs: Doors or windows that are broken, squeaking or not working properly may need attention. Usually a good idea to de-clutter throughout the house and the garage. Consider having your carpets professionally cleaned or if it is in bad shape you should consider having it replaced. If you do not, the buyer will most likely negotiate an allowance for carpet into their offer. Either way you will probably end up paying for poor quality carpet, it can also have a negative impact on some potential customers.

 Plumbing issues; make sure all is functioning properly and that there are no apparent leaks. Check the roof and gutters

and make sure there are no major problems. Nearly all buyers pay attention to the condition of the roof. Most astute buyers will arrange for a building inspection.

 It is the little things that can make a big difference: Plant flowers, replace shower curtains and purchase new matching towels generally it is nice, simple and cost effective. During the Open for Inspection, when potential buyers visit for a showing of your home it is often best to be out of the house. Buyers feel more comfortable and will stay longer if the homeowner is not present, however you must also consider security risks and secure any valuables.
