….what a wonderful weekend we’ve spent with family – family is so important to everyone, no matter how that it is configured! 👨👩👧👦👩👩👦👨👨👦👨👧👦👩👧👦
So, what do potential buyers look for in a family property?
•location – families are invariably interested in local schooling and amenities, so research your area and have this information ready to share with potential viewers or your agent
•space – families want to be able to imagine how they would use the available space so strive to define areas of your property into dedicated cooking, eating, relaxing, studying (even if that’s just a small desk in a quiet corner) and sleeping areas
•outside space – if you’re fortunate enough to have outside space, ensure it is family friendly….secure and clutter free and if possible, make it easily visible from inside the property
•a safe and secure environment….so repair and make safe anything that could be perceived as dangerous •a clean, decluttered and depersonalised property – as with any type of buyer, those looking for a family property generally don’t want to view a dirty and cluttered environment – so clean, tidy and depersonalise (buyers aren’t interested in seeing displays of family photos, certificates, child’s paintings etc – your own very personal items on display may prevent potential buyers from imagining themselves living in your property, so pack them away)and keep decor as neutral as you can
•aim to style your property as a ‘show home’ rather than a lived in family home!
