Ever read the book Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus? I have, years ago and as an estate agent, when it comes to selling houses, I think I have come to the conclusion that they are right. Put simply, when buying a property, boys and girls, men and women are all looking at different things! My blog has been inspired by recent viewings, both with single people house hunting and with couples. I’d love to know if any of this sounds like you! If you are looking to sell your home, or indeed trying, take note, our findings might help you!
It’s valentines week. Love is in the air. People are out house hunting, hoping they will find a home to “fall in love with”
I am an estate agent. You know that already. But did you know I believe that my job is more about people than property itself. Sounds odd doesn’t it? However my job is like that of a dating agency. You have a house you want to sell. I have a mailing list full of buyers. Can I get them to fall in love with your home?
A real life story
I’m an Estate Agent and by my own admission a nosey one too. I believe to be successful in this industry you need to know about the home you are selling. In many ways I feel it is like buying a car. Surely you would want to know the full service history of the vehicle so why should a house be any different?
A house will also cost most people a lot more money. With careful questioning most clients are able to give me at least the information I require, you know the type of question. How old is the house? When did the windows get replaced? Is the boiler serviced annually? And so on. 10 Lonsdale Road, however was able to give me considerably more, starting with the original sales brochure and ever so quickly I found myself becoming rather fascinated by this unassuming 1930’s home and it’s former owner.
