Selling your home can be a challenging process but it is possible to make the task easier. At Deakin-White, we are pleased to say that we have helped many home owners sell their home in a confident and effective manner. No matter what stage of the house selling process you are at, we are here to help you out and here are some selling your home tips.

The right estate agent makes a massive difference

This will sound like an obvious tip coming from an estate agent but hiring an experienced professional will make a massive difference when selling your home. We have skills and experience in this field, and we can offer advice and guidance that is relevant to your needs. We know the most likely buyers in the local area and when it comes to promoting your property, local agents are the specialists you can trust.

Be aware of the gap between asking prices and sales prices

The gap between asking prices and sales prices has been growing of late, and it is essential that homeowners are aware of this and that they manage their expectations. It is also important to be aware that average property prices are a good starting point, but they may not be relevant to your home.

It is best to have a specialist review your home and create a price that considers the quality, condition and nature of your home. When you are fully informed about your property, it becomes easier to make the right decision, which helps you appeal to the right buyer.

Be aware of the importance of kerb appeal and the outside of your home

The outside of your property has a massive role to play in attracting buyers and helping persuade prospective buyers to make an offer. Ensure that the outside of your home is as appealing as possible, adding colour; plants and vitality as much as you can. Occasional accessories will also be of benefit in creating a stylish exterior that appeals to buyers.

Declutter as best you can

There are two very strong reasons to declutter your property. When you declutter, you create space and space is at a premium when it comes to attracting buyers. You will also minimise your personal effects and influence around the home when you declutter, and this makes it easier for any prospective buyer to see themselves living in the home.

Other quick tips to consider when selling your home include:

·        Carry out all repair work and think about the little touches

·        Ensure that every room has a theme or purpose

·        Let the agent take the lead for viewings and liaising with prospective buyers

Another thing to remember is that not every offer is equal, and that the best offer is not necessarily the most expensive offer. There will be times when a slightly lower is more appealing, perhaps that buyer isn’t part of a chain, so make sure you accept the offer that best suits your needs.

Even though selling your home is a challenge, it can be an easier process when you plan and get help. At Deakin-White, we are here to assist you sell your home in the best possible manner, so contact us on 01582 343 548 for more details.
