Location, Location, Location has always been the old adage when it comes to property, but what do you do when location isn’t a choice?
Presentation, Presentation, Presentation is the answer!
Not everyone can afford the A-list address, but most can turn their hand to decorating in modern colours and presenting a property to cater for your target audience. If you’re looking to sell, or your considering sprucing up your rental to achieve a better price, treat yourself to a few ‘house’ magazines and talk to your agent.
You don’t need to blow the budget on glass sliders, quartz worktops, state of the art bathrooms, but it’s worth going the extra mile to present your property in the best light you possibly can. Adding a splash of colour and updating a tired kitchen doesn’t need to cost the earth and can give a property a whole new lease of life. You’ll also find that potential buyers will appreciate it, and renters will be forming an orderly queue….
If your rental is getting tired and you need help maximising its potential, ask Granger & Oaks how we can help? Our team of trades are experienced with renovation projects and the projects are managed by our experienced property managers who will manage the work and guide you through the process.
The uplift in value that can be achieved by presentation shouldn’t be underestimated. It’s important to think about who your customer is and think about what they’ll want. It’s fairly safe to say that you’d probably present a bungalow in village differently from a flat in a city. Work with your agent on the price for the work and potential selling price you could achieve. Whether you intend to rent or sell, the price, and the level of interest will be far greater if the presentation is right.
