5 Top Tips for A Swift Property Sale

February, 2019

From valuation to house viewings and property chains, there’s a lot to consider before selling your home. It may feel overwhelming, but there are several ways you can put your best foot forward and ensure the best possible sale.

In our six-part series we discuss the best property selling tips, from sprucing up your home to making essential repairs. Keep reading for a summary of the top 5 ways to get the most out of property…

1. Make repairs

In the first part of series, we discussed how important it is to make everything look spick and span before putting your house on the market. This includes making five essential home repairs, such as fixing faulty electrics and tackling roofing and drainage issues.

Although there might some costs involved, these simple repairs can help make a big difference - not only with the initial valuation but by also impressing potential buyers.

2. Drop the price

The second part of our series examined the tell-tale signs you should drop the price of your property. If you’re having no luck selling your home, one thing that could be standing in your way is the price.

For example, if your home has plenty of viewings but no takers, the steep price might be the thing holding you back. Dropping the price therefore can offer a big incentive to buyers.

3. Spruce it up

Next in our property-selling series, we discussed 6 simple ways you can spruce up home before viewings - including decluttering and creating the best lighting.

It’s important to make your property a warm and inviting space to attract buyers. This can be easily be done by giving your home some much needed care and attention.

4. Incentivise buyers

Selling your home is a tricky task and often buyers need a push in the right direction to get the ball rolling. That’s why in the fourth of our series, we examined how to incentivise your property to buyers.

One way to do this is by adding an incentive, either by dropping the price or even adding extras such as white goods or garden furniture. This helps make your home a more attractive option in a competitive market.

5. Depersonalise your home

In the final part of our series, we discussed how depersonalising your property can help you achieve the best sale possible.

Staging your home for viewings is an important part of the process. One easy way to do this is by removing personal belongings - such as photographs, kids’ toys and even unnecessary furniture.

This allows buyers to imagine themselves in your home and helps them visualise how they’d use the space in your property.
