5 Easy-Peasy ways your Walsall home can attract Tenants & Buyers with kerb appeal

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.

My BTL Deal of the Week, 2 Bed Terraced House, Northumberland Way, Walsall, WS2 With Yields Of 5.33%.

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. 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.

My BTL Deal of the Week, Yorkshire Grove, Walsall, WS2 With Yields Of 5.57%.

A two bedroom semi detached house on a popular newbuild estate in Walsall and highly prized by Walsall landlords. The property has a perfect spec and is good to go. The property is on the market for offers over £140k with Lovett & Co. In my opinion the asking price is too high as other 2 bed semis, with similar specs, on the estate have sold for less, so you will have some bargaining power.

There are two double bedrooms, one with en-suite as well as a family bathroom.  A modern kitchen with integrated white goods, a fair sized rear garden, chickens not included 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.
