Timing is very important for a few reasons and one of them is being aware of what is happening in the economy and property market in general. You may have decided that now is the perfect time to sell your home, but the current market conditions may be far from perfect for you to sell and get the best possible price for your home.
It is also important to note that during a time where property prices are low and you intend on purchasing another property to move into, the price of purchase will be low also.
If you are unsure on whether now is the right time to sell, you should contact a trusted, local real estate agency for guidance.
Choosing an Agent
Choosing the right real estate agent is one of the most important or if not the most important factor in selling your home. The real estate agent you choose should be someone you could see yourself doing a business partnership with. They should listen to you carefully and know your intensions as well as giving you helpful, honest and important advice and information. They should have your best interest at heart!
Your agent will be responsible for all of the advertising (websites/brochures), photography, sign boards and ads. They will be responsible for negotiating and all communication to do with your property, so choose wisely!
It is a good idea to visit a few agencies and do some research on local agents in your area. It is pivotal to choose an agent who you feel comfortable with and you feel that you will be able to communicate with on a regular basis.
Although it is solely up to the agent to use their communication and negotiating skills to sell your home, you need to be responsible for the presentation of your home. There is no need to go over board when it comes to presentation, but there are certain things that are good to know and that will aid you in catching the attention of a potential buyer.
Clutter is a big no no, try and get rid of as much as you can! Clutter will only make small spaces look smaller and will draw attention away from the home itself.
It is also a good idea to de personalise your home (before inspections) If you are enthusiastic about selling as quickly as possible, put away photos of family members, pets etc. This discourages serious buyers at inspections to imagine themselves and their family in that home. Inspections are very important as they create a first time and lasting impression as well as an experience. If you make it a good experience, potential purchasers will be likely to remember that home and feel more positively about it.
