The Hidden Potential Of Empty Properties

Author: Craig Bees Published: 21st February 2017 09:55

Strong images will always help entice viewers through the door, but unfurnished homes with less inspiring visuals should not be ignored or dismissed outright.Strong images will always help entice viewers through the door, but unfurnished homes with less inspiring visuals should not be ignored or dismissed outright.

Empty properties can often be overlooked but can offer potential buyers many benefits as they do not attract the same level of attention as furnished properties.

Strong images will always help entice viewers through the door, but unfurnished homes with less inspiring visuals should not be ignored or dismissed outright.

Seeing a property stripped back allows for a buyer’s imagination to take over and the property’s full potential to be realised.

Here are some top tips on what to consider when viewing empty properties:

The bigger picture
An empty house offers full transparency in terms of the property’s current condition, as well as allowing prospective buyers to get an accurate understanding of the property’s actual size. Unfurnished homes allow buyers to view much more of the structure and space – rather than being obstructed by wardrobes, tables and curtains – so the internal condition of the house and the space it provides is much more obvious.

Use your imagination
For those easily influenced or put off by existing interior furnishings and designs, empty homes offer prospective buyers the chance to view a property as they would receive it and imagine their own furnishings in place without distractions. Empty properties are a blank canvas simply waiting for the buyer to make their mark.

The selling chain
Sales tend to be much more straightforward when a property is empty because the seller no longer lives there. It can also allow potential buyers greater flexibility with their move in date. Empty properties can often result in a quick sale with any potential property chain less likely to fall through.

Don’t assume the worst
There could be a number of reasons why a property is empty and potential buyers should not assume it means there is something wrong. The sellers could be living overseas or have moved to a different part of the UK due to work commitments. Also, there may have been a bereavement and the property has to be sold or it’s a second home
