You may think it a tiny detail but can I be honest with you, I’ve never lived in a house I’ve rented or bought where it didn’t have a floorplan. Heck, I can even say only one or two have only ever made it to the long list, never mind shortlist!
Floorplans don’t just add value to your home when selling, not having one can actually stop people even being interested – for me it’s about not being able to consider the layout of the house fully and the dimensions of the home. If you can’t consider that then you can’t consider really how things will fit, especially if the photos are of an unfurnished property or at a slightly odd angle (as often they can be).
But its not just me…
1 in 5 buyers would ignore a property listing completely, or only re-visit it if there was nothing else that caught their eye, if a property was without a floorplan. – Rightmove survey of 10000 users.
A floorplan is about piecing things together, joining the dots if you will.
Your photography is the start of the journey, it leads people in and pulls them deep into your home – wanting to know more about what you have to offer. They are the dots. Join them together with a map (your floorplan) and the scale of your home is revealed, the true beauty of your home becomes clear.
Putting this all simply, your floorplan is just as important as your photos, without it you probably cut off 20% of your market. That 20% may be really picky but they have the right to be, their pockets are the ones with the money and as the sellers its you and your agents job to delight them with great photography, a lovely floorplan and even a lovely video perhaps. Don’t let not having a floorplan be the cause of a non-viewing.
