How do I get more viewings?

Hi, We've been on the Market for 3 weeks. Our house is listed at the mid-point of the 4 valuations we had. I think our advert and photos are good and the house is in a brilliant location in the area. Yet, we've only had 2 viewings in the 1st week and none-since. Checked our performance on line was high and 20 people had asked for the details. Does that return sound poor? Could it be the Estate Agent isn't being proactive enough?

  • A shortage of viewings is normally a combination of factors. To pinpoint the exact reason will require a combination of trial and error, not forgetting hard work from your estate agent. Firstly I would suggest a reckie on similar properties sold close to you, I would compare them with your own, once you have done this take a look at similar properties available to check your competition. If you are still confident try giving your property a fresh look online by asking the agent to change the photos and re-list i.e if you are showing a picture from an angle to the left of your property try one from the right and replicate this throughout making your property seem like a new listing. if you are finding you are still not achieving viewings start thinking about adding another agent to market the property to increase competition and motivation.

  • Thanks for the advise. 3 weeks on still no more viewings. Spoke to Estate Agent they have suggested we run a open house. They won't provide any staff but will advertise it on Zoopla/RM etc. They don't seem to be remotely proactive.
