1.Recognise the reasons you are selling your property.
There are many reasons why you will find yourself selling a property.
Have you outgrown your property and need a larger property?
Do you want to downsize? Are you relocating?
Is this an investment property that you are selling on?
Your financial situation may have changed.
Your personal situation has changed.
The reasons for selling your property can reflect largely on an estate agents marketing techniques.
Advice can be given to to you to achieve the best possible price for your circumstances.
Sometimes there are other options to selling your property that you may not have known about.
2. Keeping your sale fresh
Many buyers maybe looking at property for many months before they are ready to buy.
If your property has been up for sale for many months it could look like its old and not selling or even that something is wrong with it. It is important to re-ignite the interest by representing it differently to attract buyers that may have been looking for some time.
3. Appealing to new buyers
It is in our nature to make an opinion in the first 30 seconds so its important to think about what the buyer will see in the first 30 seconds of viewing your property.
4. Make sure the front of the property is as groomed as possible.
With your front garden manecured and front door freshly painted, welcome the potential buyer into your home with any stained or worn hallway carpets replaced and walls and woodwork also freshly decorated if needed. Make hallways as clear as possible and display your hallway as the most important room in the house.
5. Recognise the biggest attractions in the house.
Most people desire a nice kitchen, bathroom and garden. Present these in the best possible light by highlighting their best features and keeping them clear of family clutter. You should treat every viewer as that special visitor that you always tidy up for. Viewers do not look through mess and the same house could sell or not sell due to how tidy it is.
6. Know your market
If your property is empty, stage your property for the appropriate market, for instance a modern apartment should be staged for a young person or couple. A family home should highlight all pros to living in the house with a family and the warmth of family living.
7. Find the right agent.
Find an agent that does not intend to just place your property on the market but to advise you on how to achieve the best price and and make your property more appealing to buyers. We know every situation is different and we will treat each sale differently.
