Too often I am going to meet landlords and vendors in Walsall who have a perceived idea of how to present their home when looking for a tenant or a buyer. I have always said that you want to present your home in a way which will take the prospect’s mind away from thoughts of excess expenditure and expensive necessary changes they may have to fork from their pocket in addition to paying that all important price tag. The moment you have prospects thinking of where to place that all important sofa or ‘Will my bed fit in this room?’, is where you have created a chance of converting the prospect into a potential tenant or buyer. Now that’s on the inside but how important is the outside and what can you do to make your Walsall home more desirable?
You want your home to stand out from the crowd. You want tenants or buyers flocking to see what it has to offer. First impressions matter, and how your home looks from the outside can impact how buyers view the inside. Wow them from the kerb and they will enter with hope and anticipation. Disappoint them and it will take twice as much effort for your property to win them over.
Getting the right kerb appeal doesn’t take rocket science; here are 5 easy-peasy ways to attract Walsall tenants & buyers.

In recent weeks I have had the pleasure of meeting up with a few investors who were looking to enter the Walsall Property Market. There are so many approaches to investing in property and many ‘Guru’ type figures out there, all willing and able to help…all for a fee of course (some of the fees are eye watering)!! Having attended the course, some of the investors found my Blog and decided to take me up on the offer of a meeting over a cuppa. The common theme/ question that came up repeatedly was… “Do I buy with or without a mortgage”!?
For most Walsall people, a mortgage is the only way to buy a property. However, for some, especially Walsall homeowners who have paid off their mortgage or Walsall buy to let landlords, many have the choice to pay exclusively with cash. So, the real question is, should you use all your cash, or could a mortgage be a more suitable option?
Well, looking at the numbers locally…
A two bedroom semi detached house on the popular Reedswood estate in Walsall, WS2. The property has the perfect spec for rental.
There are two double bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes. A modern kitchen with integrated oven/ hob, a family bathyroom with shower, a fair sized rear garden and off-road parking. It would be better appreciated by a viewing. The location is within easy reach of all the major road networks, services and other amenities lending easy access to Walsall town centre plus Reedswood Retail Park is just around the corner.
Remaing on the same estate as Yorkshire grove, which is more good news for Walsall landlords. On the market for about 6 weeks this two bedroom terraced house is being marketed at offers over £135k by Green Co. (0121 659 0150). Another perfect spec ready for a quick let. I would say the asking price is slightly over the ‘going rate’ for similar property types and specs on the estate.
There are two double bedrooms, one with en-suite as well as a family bathroom. A modern kitchen with integrated white goods, a small low maintenance rear garden and off-road parking.
