The humble letter box, they come in all shapes, sizes, colours, materials. They are the receptacle of news – good and bad, gifts, documents, cards and junk. So often taken for granted, who would imagine their pivotal role in selling your home?
First impressions count in real estate, as much as any other business and a letterbox is often the first thing buyers will see when looking at your property. A well-maintained letterbox indicates to buyers a well maintained and cared for home. Unfortunately, an untidy or damaged letterbox sends warning signals to buyers that there may be other areas of poor maintenance in a home.
If you are looking at selling your home, have a look at your letterbox. What does it say about you? It may be a small and often forgotten part of your home, but a well loved letterbox can be an essential component in making a sale.
