Selling your home is a mixture of excitement and dread. If you’ve been through it before, you’ll know it’s quite a stressful process, and if it’s your first time, well it can all seem a little daunting. But have no fear, whether this is your first time or you’ve done it before, here are some handy tips you’ll need for selling your home.
Consider Renting It
Before selling your property, you could be in the position where instead of selling you could rent the property. With companies like Bigos Property Management, there might be more benefits to renting it for a while if the current property market isn’t working in your favour.
Set The Right Price
It’s important that you get a number of realtors or estate agents to come and view the property and give you a quote. This is important because with a number of quotes, you can set a price around the average and this will likely quicken the selling process. Setting your property’s price too high will detract buyers from even visiting the property so don’t be too greedy when it comes to setting the price.
Present Your Home Well
From the moment the estate agent comes into take photos to the various potential buyers who come to view the property, your home should look it’s best. That’s why it’s good to touch up any problems with the home, declutter it and present it in a way that’s attractive and that will help buyers visualise themselves living there. Walking into a cluttered, unkempt room will have the opposite effect. Don’t forget your outdoor space too, as this will be the first thing buyers see.
Remove Pets And Yourself For Viewings
Household pets may be good with you, but you don’t know if the buyers who puts an offer, could be allergic to cats or have a fear of dogs. That’s why it’s important to remove both the pets and yourself from the property when it’s being viewed. It also gives buyers the chance to look round without feeling that they’re invading your space or pressured. Instead, they can take their time with it. So go out for a walk, take the pets and let your buyers enjoy the viewing process.
Share Your (Positive) Views On The Neighbourhood
Buyers might be coming from far and wide and one of the selling points for a buyer maybe the surrounding area. That’s why it’s useful to chat with the buyers or give your estate agent, personal recommendations on the neighbourhood. Sure the estate agent will know a few things but probably not as much as you’d know. Stick to the positives as you don’t want anything negative affecting the chances of them not signing on the dotted line.
