Presentation is key
You don’t have to spend a great deal of time or money to make sure your home looks its best. A fresh coat of paint, well-tended gardens, minor repairs, professional cleaning and de-cluttering will make a big difference to buyers’ first impressions.
This can be particularly beneficial for vacant properties to make them appear more homely and functional.
Detail all of the inclusions or exclusions
So that buyers know exactly what’s included in the sale i.e. light-fittings and window coverings.
Timing of sale
Depending on the location and type of your property, it may be more beneficial to sell at a certain time of year. Ask your agent for advice.
Method of sale
Private treaty or auction are the two main options and each has its advantages for certain properties and in certain markets. Your agent will recommend a sales method they feel is most conducive to achieving the highest possible price for your property.
Price it Right
When establishing the saleability of your home it is vital that a sensible strategy is taken in setting a realistic sale price. Overpriced homes simply make other properties seem more appealing to potential purchasers.
