Use The Power Of The Internet

Make First Impressions Count

In today’s competitive housing market, South African buyers are quick to compare properties. To sell your home quickly, you’ll need to take a fresh look at it. Does your home deliver? If you’ve lived there a long time it can be easy to become blind to what it actually looks like.

Someone looking at it for the first time is likely to notice the flaws that you no longer see – like the half-painted wall in the bathroom or the marks on the carpet in the lounge.

Walk around your home and take a good look at it. Is the driveway weed-free? Are the bathrooms fresh and clean?

Put yourself in a buyer’s shoes, and ask yourself what could be improved. You only get one chance to make a first impression, so make sure that your property looks inviting.
