Covid-19 affected each and everyone in a way that caused stress, anxiety, and depression, but there is a positive note when you need to borrow money from the banks.
The banks’ interest rate has decreased by approximately 2 % and providing you with some relief by announcing their repayment holiday for up to three months, helping you as an owner of a business or even an individual that needs to buy or rent a house in reducing your anxiety and stress during this ambiguity economy we face today.
Not only do the banks help you, but the property prices also went down, which can be seen positively in the buyers’ eyes, but negatively in the seller’s eyes. Making it more difficult to buy or sell your property due to low prices and lack of income.
Selling your property in time like this can be difficult and frustrating, but don’t think it’s impossible. Pick up your phone and contact our agents today.
Here are some tips to make your home more marketable:
Make your topography neat and easy on the eyes
Always remember buyers notice the terrain the moment they arrive at your property. Give buyers space and neatness so that they can imagine the property as their own. You do not need to spend lots of money on your terrain, but a tidy topography goes a long way.
Make prerequisite repairs and updates
It’s important to mend and update your property. No one wants to invest in a neglected property. Always place yourself in the shoes of the buyer. It can be as simple as painting your house inside and out or even replacing broken light bulbs.
Make use of our (Joseph & Snyman) professional agent team
Using an agent to sell your property will lift the heavyweight off your shoulders and make it easier for you as the purveyor to sell your property at the right market price.
Always make sure your Kitchen and Bathroom is the centerpiece
The most important room in the house will always be the kitchen and the restroom. Don’t neglect these rooms.
Notice unwanted smell
Wearing the buyer shoes and smelling unwanted pet odor or any other unwanted smell, you will think twice to purchase the house. The first thought will be; how you as the purchaser will get rid of the smell, or will the smell go away. The bad smell can turn customers away from your property. Bad odor can be rectified by cleaning carpets, using air-freshener, and adding some flowers and making your home pleasant to view.
