6. View property photos

It’s important that photographs taken of the retirement property put the flat in its best light. For example, if the apartment has low levels of light or small windows, ensure that the curtains are fully drawn and the photos are taken with the lights on, so people can clearly see the size and the layout of the rooms. In addition, ensure photos are take of all the facilities on offer at the retirement development such as the communal lounge, outside seating area, communal dining room, hair salon, tv room, and even the battery scooter store if the retirement development has one – as these facilities may be just what the potential buyer is looking for.
