Using an Architect To Sell Your Home

Finding a buyer for your home can be an anxious time - especially if you have already found a home to move onto. It may seem to you that your home is unloved and lacks that wow factor for potential buyers too - that’s when the anxiety really sets in. However, it doesn’t need to be all doom and gloom. There are some simple things that you can do to make your home more saleable and worth more - just keep reading.

It takes on average 16 to 18 weeks to sell your home and if yours has passed this time you may want to consider your options. 

Your home has potential

It may not seem like it yet but your home has potential - it just needs a helping hand. Hiring an architect Chester may not be your first call when it comes to selling your home but it may be the better option - it could even make you money too! By creating future plans for your home you are unlocking its potential for prospective buyers and giving them an insight on what they could do with the space if they were to buy. Not everyone has vision and by giving this to them it allows for them to take this into consideration - even if they don’t end up going with your proposed designs.

Give buyers possibilities

Once you have your designs why not take them one step further and have 3D models created. 3D models come in different forms including, interactive and photo-realistic (or in architecture terms -  rendered). Both types can be generated from floor plans and allows your potential buyer to explore the space and design better. Giving your buyer a feel for the design and how it could come together is much more appealing then having a floor plan which some buyers may be a little bewildered by. The more detail the better. 

Secure planning permission

Designs are all well and good but if you also secure planning permission for these plans you’ll truly make your home stand out from the crowd. Did you know that by having planning permission it can add up to £10,000 to your overall resale value? Planning permission lasts 3 years too so you have plenty of time to sell your home and your buyer has time to think about putting those plans into place if they wish to.

To secure planning permission you will need to submit your plans to the local planning board or have your architect do so for you. By having your architect Chester as your planning agent you are more likely to get your plans approved than trying to do so yourself and they are up to date on the latest regulations. This  will also minimise your risk of rejection and costly admin mistakes.
