If you are looking to sell your home, it is vital you consider what buyers are looking for. Presenting your home to appeal to the most likely buyer makes sense, and it will help you connect with the most likely buyer. At Smith Melzack, we are pleased to say we have assisted many Wembley vendors in selling their home, and we believe we can assist you in attracting buyers to your property.
One area of interest that is growing for prospective buyers in the availability of a home office. The Office of National Statistics, the ONS, has previously predicted half of the UK workforce would be working remotely by 2020. Even if this prediction falls short, home-working is on the rise, and this is something prospective buyers have in their mind when looking for a new home.
A lot of workers manage to avoid the commute on a part-time basis, and a lot of professionals now have the ability to work from home. You will also find there has been a sharp rise in self-employment, and people working for themselves from the comfort of their own home.
This change in working practice ensures that home offices are vital. If you are a vendor looking to connect with buyers, making your home more appealing to this style of buyer makes sense.
A good working environment is one that is comfortable, and which is also free from distractions. When you have an area that is closed off from the rest of the home, it helps to create a better work-life balance, which is always important for homeowners. Also, if you create a self-contained area for homeworkers, self-assessment tax returns become slightly easier for these professionals.
While setting up a home office is a smart move, you do not want to reduce the number of bedrooms in a home. Therefore, you might need to be creative in setting up a home office. If you have a storage space which is large enough for a desk and table, this could be an option to consider. If there is a landing area that can be set up as a home office, this may help you reach buyers effectively.
Also, you should consider partitioning a larger room if possible. You should not reduce the number of bedrooms on offer, but if you have a large bedroom that can be split into a bedroom and bathroom, you will find it possible to achieve all your aims when it comes to selling your home.
You need to add the right sort of furniture when setting up a home office. Ideally, if there is a theme or style throughout your property, this should be maintained. However, you also want to provide a functional feel in the home office. Also, you do not want to spend too much money, because this may eat into the return you enjoy when selling your home.
