On the day of the viewing

Do not let your buyer wait, be prepared to show off your home to the potential buyer.

  • Cool your home with an electric fan or aircon. Open all the windows for better ventilation and to create a comfortable environment.
  • Ensure there is enough lighting so the buyer will be able to see the beauty of the unit.
  • It is recommended to walk with the potential buyer to all the rooms in your flat instead of asking him to explore freely.

Your potential buyer may ask for a lower price, be ready to negotiate professionally.
