What To Do If Your House Isn’t Attracting Buyers

  14 Jan 2019

There are many components involved in the overall process of selling your home. Each stage is vital and no matter how well you do with every other stage, you will find it difficult to sell your home if you struggle with one step. If you are unable to attract buyers to your home, you will not sell your home. At Jezzards, we know how important it is to attract buyers and we are pleased to say we have helped many local homeowners sell their home in an effective and efficient manner.

Follow these tips to attract buyers to your home

In our years of experience, we are pleased to say we have helped many homeowners sell their home. We know how important it is to attract buyers to your property, and these are our leading tips to attract buyers to your home:

  1. Ensure your home is properly valued
  2. Ensure your home has been photographed properly
  3. Are you promoting the property on social media?
  4. Sell the local community as well as the property
  5. Hire the best local estate agent

Ensure your home is properly valued

If you are looking to attract buyers to your home, it is essential that you value your home properly. If your home is priced too high, people won’t show any interest in it. If you price your home too low, you will enjoy interest but you will lose out on money.

So, it is best to have your home evaluated by a professional and then make an informed call on the price your home is placed at on the market.

Ensure your home has been photographed properly

While online property portals provide plenty of choice for buyers, the amount of competition can be challenging for vendors. It is vital that you stand out for all the right reasons, and great quality images are the ideal way to differentiate your home from other homes on the market.

A professional photographer with experience in taking images of homes will have experience in staging, lighting and presenting homes. This will give you an advantage over other homes online that haven’t been photographed professionally.

Are you promoting the property on social media?

Even though you should expect your estate agent to carry out most of the work for you when it comes to selling your home, you should also get involved. Social media provides you with the ideal opportunity to promote your home, share images and direct people to the listing.

Many house sales come about through fortunate interventions of chance recommendations, which means you can improve your chances of making a sale by being proactive on social media.

Promote the local community as well as the property

It may be that you need to promote the local area and community as much as you promote your home. You will likely have an insight you can share about your home, so let people know the strong points of living in the area. If you have information about great shops, cafes, restaurants and bars, let people know about them, and this may encourage more people to develop an interest in your home.

Hire the best local estate agent

One reason you may not be attracting buyers to your home could be your estate agent. If your estate agent isn’t currently generating interest in your home, you may be better served by employing the services of a more skilled and experienced estate agent like Jezzards. To find out more about our selling services or to get a free assessment of the current marketing of your home, please contact our team today by calling us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 03330 433 633.

What our clients say about us

  • " I've dealt with some horrible agencies whilst renting in the past but I am glad we had Jezzards as our last. Didn't know that someone so professional and understanding and true to it's word existed in the business. I locked myself out once and they were there in  20 mins to assist. Heating stopped in the night and their out of hours assistance helped sort us out. Any problems or issues, were very promptly and effectively dealt with...I didn't even have to chase them. Our exit was quick, refunds took some time due to overlooked issues, which Victoria Jezzard looked into personally, and all done in 3 days. Dorathy was our handler and she was ace!! "
