Love will tear us apart again
It’s Valentine’s Day so we thought it would be heartless of us to not talk about love.
For some of you this time of year is about being treated to a slap up romantic meal with an accompaniment of chocolate and flowers.
For others it’ll be a time of sitting in the front room watching EastEnders with a TV dinner on your lap while your dog looks at you dismissively.
Whatever you are up to this Valentine’s Day we can give you one piece of romantic advice. And that’s to try to emotionally detach yourself from your property when you come to put in on the market.
Why be so cold hearted?
Well, a lot of people love their homes, probably the majority of people do. But when selling your home that passion can cause a problem if left to run free.
If you are carrying out a viewing yourself then remember that viewers do not have the same attachment to your property as you do, yours could be the fifth property they’ve seen in two hours.
They may pick up something negative about your property that your love struck eyes have never noticed. Your choice of décor might not be to their taste but please don’t take this to heart.
It’s very important you don’t get emotional at this point. Of course nobody likes themselves or their things being criticised but that’s where we come in as agents.
Part of our job is to accompany people on viewings and we use the knowledge we have of a prospective buyers needs to make sure that we get across the positives that the property will offer them personally. We know what ticks their boxes and what doesn’t!
In essence we are property match-makers. We bring people together: one selling a property, the other buying. We’re in the middle to help iron out any issues before you marry, sorry I mean exchange contacts and complete the transaction.
I’ve witnessed on several occasions a person falling in love with a property at first sight and making an offer within minutes. I’ve also carried out viewings second, third, fourth and even fifth before they made their offer. It just goes to show that you really can’t hurry love (sometimes).
One thing I’m very confident is that if you instruct us to sell your property you’ll fall head over heels with our level of service and care. Just take a look at what some of our happy clients have had to say about us. We have certainly felt the love!
