“It was like a pig sty”

Posted on Sunday, March 18, 2018

And it isn’t a reference to the state of my office desk as we keep a tidy, organised and efficient ship at Sansome & George and, for the record, our desks are spotless.

No, ‘it was like a pig sty’ was a quote from a potential buyer when asked for feedback on a property he had recently viewed.

Although a little harsh his response was merited and raised a serious point.

I know it can be difficult to keep on top of the housework, especially if you have children and / or a busy lifestyle. But when your property is on the market it’s potentially the difference between selling your home or not.

No viewer wants to navigate their way through an obstacle course of old socks, empty cans, toys scattered on the floor and last week’s newspapers gathering dust.

Having your dirty saucepans, overflowing laundry basket and an unmade bed on show might make your property unique but it sure isn’t a unique selling point.

I’m not suggesting properties need to be surgically clean, but a quick tidy up every day could be the most valuable housework you ever do.

After all unless you live on a farm a pig sty is never a good look.

Thanks for reading.

Regards

I was pleasantly surprised by the courtesy, responsiveness, attention to detail and willingness to help on the part of the sales staff (in particular Nick and Brendan) from the outset. They understand what "going the extra mile" actually means, and this made the transaction so much easier than I had anticipated, as I was necessarily dealing...
