When it comes to selling a property, high quality photographs and well written room descriptions are extremely important but now research suggests that floor plans are more important than both the main image and the summary description of the property.
Surveys suggest that 1 in 3 potential buyers were less likely to enquire about a property that did not have a floor plan. They want to see the layout and where the rooms are in relation to the other rooms in the property, for example how close is the kitchen to the dining room etc.
How a floor-plan can save you time. For both the seller and the purchaser, floor plans save time. The purchaser doesn’t waste time viewing properties that won’t suit their needs and the seller doesn’t waste time showing the property to people who will not be purchasing the property because the layout isn't for them.
How a floor-plan helps purchasers after viewing. Not only are floor plans a great way to get people to book a viewing on your property but many buyers like to review a floor plan after their viewing to help them plan and envisage how their furniture/belongings would work within the home.
Floor plans are particularly helpful where the potential buyers are considering making structural alterations to the property, such as knocking down walls or creating an additional room. They can also remind potential purchasers of details they may have forgotten since the viewing, such as storage areas etc.
At RF&O we use both 2D and 3D floor plans to help our buyers get an accurate vision of the property before they visit and with current restrictions, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this service has become even more vital!
