First Impressions

By Glenn Andrews

Like a first date, you only have about 5 seconds to make a good first impression.

Also like dating, buying is a sensory experience. Looks, smells and sounds all matter. But let’s separate from the analogy now.

It’s important before you put your property on the market that you give these things consideration.

Walk into your home, what is the first impression? Maybe even ask ‘that friend’ with all the opinions what they think. Even better would be to get a professional stylist to present your home.

Use candles or perfume to ensure the welcoming scent is one of delight.

Finally, consider the noise. Do you have creaking floors or squeaky doors? Do your taps clunk or air cons buzz? A handyman, technician or some WD40 can help with house noises and those minor problems won’t become major turn offs.
