If you are unsure on whether to have a ‘FOR SALE’ or ‘TO LET’ board when marketing your property, then read on.
There are a few reasons people consider not erecting a board. For example – you don’t want to annoy your neighbours or you think it could be a security risk.
However, these reasons are often incorrectly perceived. In fact, there are many advantages to putting a board up on your property:
A ‘FOR SALE’ or ‘TO LET’ board will help potential buyers or tenants to easily discover the property when they arrive for a viewing. This stops them having to worry about driving around to find the property; thus, making their impressions a more positive one.
Most applicants will go to their desired location before they find the right property to move into, just to get a feel for the area. Whilst they are there exploring, any ‘FOR SALE’ or ‘TO LET’ boards will stand out as particular interest, so they can quickly make contact with the agent to arrange a viewing.
Your neighbours will most likely know that your property is on the market very quickly via the internet anyway! So, not having a board won’t stop them finding out. Actually, they may know someone who would like to move into the area, who they could recommend to view your property.
For a potential buyer, a ‘FOR SALE’ board on a property conveys a very positive message by showing the vendor is committed to selling their property. This also helps during the sales progression phase, to show your buyer the loyalty is still to the sale.
Even if your property is not on the main road, a board can still alert potential buyers to your house. For example, the friends & relatives of your neighbours who may be paying a visit.
