6 New Year’s Resolutions to help you sell your home sell faster and for the best possible price.

6 New Year’s Resolutions to help sell your home sell faster and for the best possible price.

1 – Home Stage your property.

The principles behind Home Staging are common sense – from de-cluttering to making sure that every space has a clearly defined purpose – but done professionally they make a huge difference to how your home presents in photos and at viewings. Work with us and we will give you a free Home Staging Consultation with a local independent interior designer to make sure your home really shines.

2 – Get the price right.

If you want to kill your house sale then put it on for an unrealistic figure. Much better to go for the strong end of realistic, then if you get lots of interest, you simply ask for best and final offers. Whatever you do, avoid tricksy prices ending in 995 or 950 as round numbers make your home much more visible on Rightmove and Zoopla.

3 – Hold an Open Day.

Not only is it much easier for you, especially if you have untidy teenagers, but an Open Day creates a sense of competition between buyers. It also maximises your chance of getting competing offers and so getting the best possible price.

4 – Instruct your solicitor up-front.

Make sure you instruct a good local solicitor before marketing – and we can happily recommend – so that they have everything ready to send to the buyer’s solicitor as soon as the sale is agreed. This will speed up the selling process and give you the best chance of success.

5 – Don’t pay too much – or too little.

Conventional estate agents operate on commission which can be pricy. The TV agents charge less if you to pay up-front and do a lot of the leg-work yourself. We offer a high quality personal service but charge simple transparent fees that offer genuine value for money (see back page).

6 – Call us!
