Hello and welcome to our new weekly feature on our website.

We will be sharing our expertise and knowledge on the property industry in Lincoln and the surrounding area and giving you plenty of useful tips and advice.

As it is our first weekly feature, we thought we should cover first impressions.  When it comes to selling or letting a property, first impressions are hugely important.

When putting your property on the market, have a good look at your front door.  Does it need a lick of paint, a good clean or is your old “welcome mat” not very inviting?  It is one of the first things potential buyers will see so try to make it as attractive looking as possible.

A report once that stated homes with red front doors sold faster than those that didn’t.  Now we are not sure we would agree with that, but we have seen potential buyers dismiss a property within 15 seconds based on what they saw from the outside.

This kerb appeal is a lot easier to achieve than most people think.

By following these simple steps you should be able to create a really strong first impression:-

  • Make sure your front door and windows are clean;
  • Your front garden, if you have one, needs to be tidy and well kept;
  • A fresh lick of paint to the property’s exterior is always a GREAT investment when selling;
  • If you have a driveway get it cleaned and remove any weeds; and
  • A good quality, old fashioned “welcome mat” always goes down well.

We have sold and let thousands of properties over the years and the above advice always stands the test of time.

We hope you enjoyed our first News Feature and that it’s made a good impression on you (see what we did there?).

Thanks for reading.
