Everyone knows the importance of presenting their property in the very best light when they are trying to sell. Making sure toys tidied away, beds are made, you have had a quick hoover round – some people even like to give the walls a fresh lick of paint.
Many buyers like to see a property that is enjoyed by the current owner, and like to see how the property is used in its current guise. That said, they also don’t want TOO much of someone else’s personality to get in the way of them imagining themselves living in the space – ideally, they need to be able to be able to buy into the lifestyle that the property affords, via a blank canvas that they could put their stamp on!
Most buyers understand what they need to do in order to meet this exacting criteria, however one area that many still neglect is the garden. In the summer months outside space is a real consideration, with colourful flowers and warm, sunny space being a real selling feature for some buyers. But, as the nights start to draw in and the weather turn chillier, the garden often becomes less of a concern for sellers, and many people tend to ‘forget’ about it until spring.
However, if you are hoping to sell your property you cannot forget about your garden. It represents another room that potential buyers will see as a useable space, and a good garden can make or break a sale. Even if a buyer is viewing your property in deepest, darkest winter, they are likely to be viewing it with a plan to live there in the long term, and will be enjoying the space in the hot summer months as well, so you need to work extra hard to sell the potential of that space to them.
