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.

The Best Type of Walsall Property For Buy To Let is…

In today’s Walsall property market, the Walsall homeowners and Walsall landlords I talk to are always asking me which attributes and features are likely to make their property comparatively more attractive and which ones may detract from the price. Over time buyers’ and tenants’ wants and needs have changed.

The conformist way of categorising property in Britain is to look at the number of bedrooms rather than its size in square metres (square feet for those of you over 50!). My intuition tells me that homeowners and tenants are happy to pay for more space. It’s a little obvious, the more bedrooms a house or apartment has, the bigger the property is likely to be. Also, it’s not only the physical additional bedrooms, but those properties with additional bedrooms tend to have larger (and more) reception (living) rooms. However, if you think about it, this isn’t so surprising given that properties with more bedrooms would typically accommodate more people and therefore require larger reception rooms.
