Looking to sell your office space? Whether you’re expanding your business because you need larger premises or you’re moving to a better location, you’ll want to sell up as quickly as possible.
The last thing you want is for your company’s growth to suffer because you’re unable to find a buyer fast enough. It’s therefore vital to make your offices as appealing as you can. You’ll want to give the impression that a buyer could move their own business in straight away without having to do any work on the place themselves. Here’s how.
It’s surprising what a difference a fresh layer of paint can make, especially if you haven’t redecorated for several years. Old paint can discolour, peel and accumulate dirt and dust, which isn’t a good look. Also, your existing colour scheme may not be suitable for the next company that wants to move in, making it harder for them to imagine what the space would look like if they took over.
New paint in neutral tones would make your offices appear bigger and brighter while eliminating years of dirt and marks. It would also create a blank canvas.
2. Lay new carpets
Your carpets will no doubt have seen more than their fair share of spilt coffees over the years, and will probably have the stains to prove it. What’s more, carpets can wear thin and lose their colour over time, so lay new ones to bring the office space bang up to date. Or, give the old one a professional clean.
3. Do a deep clean
When was the last time you carried out a deep clean in all the nooks and crannies? After growing so accustomed to the same space every day, your eyes may not spot the smaller problems that prospective buyers could pick up instantly, such as that little bit of mould around the windowsill. Pay attention to the smaller details with a thorough clean up, and you’ll impress potential buyers; the last thing they want to do when they move in is to clean but a ready-to-move-into property will be very appealing.
4. Tend the garden
Companies will be looking for a low-maintenance outdoor area to complement their office space, and the last impression you’ll want to give is that the garden is difficult to manage. So don’t forget to tidy up outdoors as well!
