Perhaps you have to start work in a new town quite a distance away at a certain date and need your property sold before you can do that, or maybe you don’t want to be stuck navigating the housing market for longer than you have to. Whether you’ve been trying to sell your property for a while or are just contemplating putting it on the market, you will undoubtedly be looking to get the best price, but in the quickest amount of time. In the following post we will look at some tips to give you the best chance possible.
Choosing the Right Agent to Work With
It’s incredibly stressful selling a house, so it’s crucial to find and work with an estate agent who will help you to get the best results and reduce your worries and concerns. You need to find one that has a good reputation and a solid track record. Try to find one that will get the maximum number of viewings and will utilise the most current property marketing tools without costing too much.
Increase the Kerb Appeal of Your Property
If your property gives the wrong first impression it could put prospective buyers off from even bothering to view it. It’s important that they walk up your driveway feeling excited and impressed SO it’s vital that you work on the exterior of your property almost as much as the interior. Brighten old and tired-looking fences and doors with a coat or two of paint and try putting some hanging baskets up to add a bit of diversity and colour.
De-Clutter and Spruce Things Up
It doesn’t have to involve an expensive makeover when you are trying to make your home more attractive to buyers. Your personal touches are unlikely to be too everyone’s tastes anyway. You should consider giving each room a neutral coloured coat of paint in each room. De-cluttering is also vital because you need to make sure your home feels open and clear and that buyers have a sense of just how big or small each room is, so that they can picture themselves in it.
Try having a clear out and selling, handing on or recycling items that you don’t need or use any more
The Little Things Are Those that Count
Remember, buyers viewing your property will be doing the same in many other homes too. They will probably be nit-picking and trying to find faults and good points about all the places they look at, so you need to make sure you sort those maintenance jobs you keep putting off, such as changing light bulbs.
Clean, But Give it a Really Thorough Clean
You need to clean more thoroughly than you do normally. Remember what we said about nit-picking, any spot of dust or untidy and dirty surfaces may not reflect the quality of the house. However, it may mean that they won’t want to spend too much time there looking at.
