What could possibly put people off purchasing your home?

Now, we know that most of the time people are very proud of the home they have and that they want every viewer to feel the same way! So, we thought we’d tell you some points that might put people off your property, although unfortunately some of them you can’t do much about! Research conducted by Good Move.

  • Noisy neighbours
  • Signs of damp
  • A shared garden
  • Signs of cracks in the walls
  • 3’s on a Home Report
  • Front door opening onto a main road
  • No garden
  • No parking
  • Unattractive smells
  • High street or situated on a busy road

Obviously, you can’t do anything about some of these things such as location but, things like damp, cracks in walls or any 3’s on the HR you should really consider carrying out repair works to get these issues corrected.

Are you struggling to find a tenant?

We know that finding a new tenant for your buy to let property can be a stressful process so, we thought we’d give you a few top tips to avoid putting potential tenants off!

  • Clutter – Even if a property being let as furnished (a great way to achieve a higher yield) don’t overcrowd it with unnecessary items! People often have a lot of belongings themselves so, leave enough room for those!
  • Fresh coat of paint – A fresh coat of paint an easy and relatively low-cost way of brightening up a property and making it look more appealing.
  • Unfinished jobs – Even if you intend to get the jobs finished before the tenant moves in, don’t let viewings commence before the property is completely finished.
  • Clean, clean, clean – Make sure the property is clean! Set the standard for your tenant! You can’t expect your tenant to keep the property clean and tidy if it wasn’t given to them that way!
  • Make sure everything is in working order – Make sure all of the appliances are in full working order. Again it can deter a potential tenant if they think that you don’t properly maintain things because if there is ever an issue during their tenancy then it may give the impression that you won’t get it resolved in a timely fashion, if at all.
