Floor plans are one of the most effective marketing tools and widely sought after by buyers. In fact the majority of home buyers say that they would rather contact a property with a floor plan than without.
According to the research of Rightmove buyers are less likely even to enquire about a property without a floor plan. Why? Because floor plans help to perceive the overall picture of the house. Buyers want to see the room layout and how the rooms fit in relation to other rooms. They want to see the flow between the rooms. Floor plans are useful to help design furniture layout, wiring systems and more.
The best thing in floor plans is that they actually save both sellers and buyers time. Home-seekers can see at a glance if the house is suitable for their needs or not. There is no point to show a house to someone the floor plan is not suitable for. With a floor plan included the seller can focus on the most potential buyers.
Keep it simple
You might have a building or council plan already but remember that those are often very detailed and therefore quite hard for buyers to follow. Most of the buyers are not that familiar with construction drawings and this is why you should consider asking your floor plan supplier if they could redraw your floor plan and make it more user-friendly.
Use a professional
Even the simplest floor plan is way better than no floor plan at all. However it still does not need to look like it have been drawn by a child. If you don’t have a floor plan yet you can easily order one from the several service providers by just sending a sketch of the property or try some of the floor plan creator from internet.
If you still want to have something more, consider adding the room dimensions and total square footage of the property. Room dimensions are actually rated to be the most important feature when looking at a floor plan. Some of the buyers could also value a compass rose which shows the orientation of the house.
