Be Prepared for Unexpected Questions about Your Kent Home

Be Prepared for Unexpected Questions about Your Kent Home

In this two-minute read, we look at useful information
which you might want to share with your agent to satisfy inquisitive buyers.

You can often tell whether a
viewer is keen on a property from the questions they ask. And in our
experience, the more specific the question, the warmer the prospect. When it
comes to preparing for a sale, the more information that you can share with
your agent, the better. Here are five typical questions to get you thinking.

1) What are the
neighbours like?

Your viewer
is envisioning living in your property. Help them do this by letting your agent
know the demographic of your neighbourhood. A good agent will assess the
viewer’s preference and highlight those neighbours accordingly; families,
elderly people, professionals, students, etc. Add extra information if you can:
Are they friendly, quiet, helpful?

2) Where are
the closest bus stops?

Go a step
further and provide information on the bus routes and the frequency of the
service. If it’s only a ten-minute ride into town, or there’s a direct service
to the leisure centre, let your agent know.

3) Which way
does the garden face?

For those
with outside space, most people want to know which way the garden faces. If
you’re unsure, there’s a helpful app called Lumos, which will point you in the
right direction (excuse the pun!). Garden furniture purposely positioned in
sunny spots will show potential buyers where to go for a bit of R&R.

4) Where do the
kids next door go to school?

It’s good if
you can let your agent know which Kent
school catchment your property sits in. It’s great if you can tell them where
the local kids go. Parents’ school preferences vary – with some prioritising the
same school as local friends over Ofsted reports.

5) Which
takeaways deliver here?

If a buyer is
wedded to their weekly teatime treat, this will be essential information. If
you have a recommendation, let your agent know – you might tempt prospective
buyers with new or unique culinary delights in your local neighbourhood.

property move and want to know more about what information to start collating (or
