How to sell a property quickly, with no viewings required! Mon, 14 Oct 2013 17:34

A lot of research has been done over the years to identify issues which "turn off" buyers during property viewings.

These surveys generally reach the same conclusions.

Top buyer "turn off's" include:

Smells (cigarettes and pets being particularly off-putting)
Old fixtures and fittings
Damp and/or mould
Poor decor taste
Too personalised
Noisy road outside
The seller conducting the viewing
Poor curb appeal
Obvious structural defects
Close to mobile phone mast or other eyesore
Poor lighting
Funny shaped rooms where furniture might not fit
Ugly views from the windows
Signs of pests like ants or cockroaches
Bedroom turns out to be a box room
Lack of storage
No downstairs toilet
Overgrown garden
Tenants in situ (fear of not having vacant possession on completion).
No garage or parking spaces
Lack of maintenance/unfinished DIY projects
Poor finish on refurbishments or up-grades
Property feels cold and unwelcoming
Anti-social neighbours
Threat of "fracking" nearby
Viewer does not get a "good vibe" from the property and cannot imagine living there.

However, many people do not want to invest money in bringing their property up to scratch because they feel that they are selling it and have already mentally "moved on".

Rightmove director Miles Shipside comments: 

Kitchens and bathrooms are two of the most personal and well-used areas of the home. Many potential buyers will try to imagine themselves living in the property during a viewing and having their senses offended by a lack of cleanliness or hygiene can be a real barrier.

Ironically however, cleaning up the kitchen and bathroom to give a sparkling finish can cost far less than other aspects in need of a home makeover.”

If you are thinking of selling your property and do not have the money to spend on home improvements prior to sale, or you know that some of the above points apply to your property and you would prefer not to have an endless trail of viewers coming through your home and making negative comments, then selling to a cash buyer could be the solution for you.

Richard Hill, Founder of Dream House Buyer comments:

"Someone looking to move into a "home" is going to be far more critical and emotionally involved in choosing a property than an investor. As we are cash buyers of property, we don't need everything to be all singing and dancing, and we can take a view when required. We have our own specialist team of building contractors, and therefore we are not averse to carrying out property repairs, nor should you worry if you are selling a problem property.

An investor has a different set of criteria and boxes to tick and will also be able to see past any defects. We welcome owners of property whom have a problem property to sell too, whether it's just generally in need of updating, or your property has an issue with the structure. 

At Dream House Buyer, we, on occasion, make an offer on a property without having viewed it.

We only inspect where necessary and it is not a condition of our offer".
