Do we need Floorplans to Sell a Home?

Floorplans are a relatively new addition to property details

Originally they were only made available for either very big homes,or new builds,but these days they are much more common and even the cheapest of small flats usually have a floorplan in the property details.

But why are they so vital?

It is important that the three basic parts are used in any floorplan,these being needed to ensure usability.

The first one is it needs to show measurements. Too many poor floorplans forget to show any measurements. By the way,the right place for room dimensions is in the floorplan,not in the details,this so that any buyer can easily ascertain their relative sizes

Secondly,it should show a compass,as this allows the buyer to tell which way the front of the house and the garden,faces.

The final element that should be shown on a floorplan,is the overall square footage as this allows the property to be compared with others,thus allowing the buyer to instantly see how much house he’s getting for his money.

This is vital in the Britain,as we often sell houses on number of rooms,not really mentioning the fact that a new 4 bedroomed house can take up the same land as a three bedroomed property would have done in the 1980’s.

To be able to see the total floor area gives a buyer the opportunity to ensure he is getting good value for money

So why is a floorplan vital?

The three main reasons are:

1. It helps a buyer see how the house ‘works’,and therefore whether it is worth a viewing. This is called Room flow,the relative sizes and layout are all factors that a buyer will take into account. This being especially the case for family buyers. In all cases giving the viewer with all the info means that he won’t want to waste time by viewing properties which just aren’t suitable for his needs.

2. A floorplan can help a buyer to visualise the property later on. This can become helpful when they may be considering making layout changes,like installing an ensuite.

3.Floorplans can make a property seem larger. It’s very easy when you’ve viewed a house to forget rooms that you’ve seen,or overlook a part of the house altogether. This is especially the case with box rooms,or areas that aren’t being fully utilised,like storage rooms. By showing all of the house on a floorplan,no area will be omitted.

To conclude,make sure you have a floorplan on your brochure. Remember to ensure it is clear and informative,and that it includes the total floor area.
