How to write a good description of your home

Start by describing your home, try and capture its unique selling point in your introduction; is it ‘a modern two bedroom home close to the local train station’, or ‘a stylish apartment on the edge of woodlands’ for example.

Make sure you detail all of the rooms, and describe each room as best you can, including features like flooring, fireplaces, built-in wardrobes, or fitted appliances.

Detail any outside space, and describe what it’s like, for example ‘rear garden laid to lawn with large established flower beds’ or ‘driveway with space for two cars and access to local footpath’.

Finally make sure you appeal to your audience, things like ‘child friendly garden’, or ‘close to local shops and nightlife’ can help your potential buyer understand what life might be like if they buy your home

Some examples are:
