Advice to sellers
Your property is as unique as you and the best advice on ‘how to sell your property’ will be tailored to your particular home and your particular needs.
That said, we are not averse to sharing some small pearls of wisdom from our, quite frankly, brilliant estate agents on the things to consider when selling your home:
Before you launch, instruct your solicitor to prepare all the documentation, so that a contract can be sent out with no delay once your agent has found a buyer.
Timing the launch
The best time to launch most properties is usually between mid-January and mid-March or early September. If you have a particularly special garden or roof terrace, try to coincide your launch with it looking its best.
Presentation needn't be time-consuming or expensive, but it does, in every single case, make the whole difference. Make sure you get proper advice.
Setting your asking price
It is always sensible to get more than one opinion when selling your house, and do not fall into the trap of simply choosing your estate agent because they gave you the highest valuation. Make sure they back their opinion up with reliable evidence.
Try to use to an agent who has a good track record of selling property like your own, and preferably one that has been recommended to you. Make sure that you understand exactly how they will market your property and don't hesitate to move on if they don't deliver.
Do not fall into the trap of choosing the cheapest or the most expensive estate agency. Your choice should be governed by your own objectives and the confidence you have in the agent being able to achieve them, not by what you pay them.
Have a clear idea about the sort of property that you want and where your priorities lie, and check that they can be met within the budget available. Once you begin your property search in earnest, try to meet the estate agents you are looking through in person - they are much more likely to be able to help you.
By following the above tips you can put yourself in a strong and confident position when selling your home. For more information on how to sell your property or to talk to our experts about how we can help, please get in touch with our friendly and helpful teams by completing the get in touch.
