Area can mean a lot to your home – it can affect how potential buyers see your property before they even get into it, and you may even be required to put in a bit more effort if you're really keen to get your property up and moving. While you can't unfortunately go to any great lengths to change where your home resides, there are a few things you can do to highlight how great your home is despite any interest-lowering problems externally.
As with any part of the property selling process, it's extremely important that you offer your potential buyer a true snapshot of what's available to them. If a neighbour's garden or if the local neighbourhood is in particular decline this may not garner positive responses from your viewers but it's worth bearing in mind that you may face awkward questions later on in the process – and if problems aren't obvious on first viewing, you could even face legal or financial reparation as a result later down the line. Being open and clear on issues – but not dwelling on matters – is the key.
Highlight your home
If the local area or neighbours are detracting from an otherwise fantastic home, don't let them – let your property speak for itself and shine through. Really do work on making your property the very best it can be, presentation and features are everything – and after all this is done, the right buyer for the home will be happy to take on a fantastic house regardless of where it may be sitting.
Highlight the neighbourhood's best features
When inviting viewings to your home, if the local area isn't completely run-down and does have a few major facilities to highlight, why not offer potential buyers the opportunity to really see what good the local features and amenities have to offer them if they were to move into your home? Does your area have a good school system, local shops and stores, and links to major cities or towns? Are there any transport links nearby, and are there any entertainment venues or restaurants in close proximity? Why not highlight these not only during your tour but by directing your viewers via a particularly attractive route to your home – therefore you're showcasing the best, leaving the less attractive parts open to be discovered or enquired about.
Ask for help
Asking for help is such a large part of selling your home fast

– you never have to go selling your property alone and it is notably more difficult if you are looking to sell in an area that is experiencing financial problems or is notoriously hard to move property in. However, estate agents are trained and paid to have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to highlighting the very best in a property and they are also – of course – experts at selling. Don't fear them! They know the area better than anyone and will have some great trips that will help you deliver an open, honest and attractive deal to potential buyers.
