Whether you’re trying to sell your home or you’re wanting to progress from your current real estate investment, the selling process can be difficult. However, by taking a few simple steps, you could sell your property in no time.
Make Sure Your Asking the Right Price
Putting a property on the market and getting the right asking price can be tricky. If you put the price too high you risk putting certain people off, while if you put it too low you have no room for haggling – which a lot of people will be expecting to do.
In a moment of desperation, you may have said to an estate agent, “Can you sell my house?” but make sure you’re asking a number of reputed companies, like Andrews & Partners Limited, for their advice, too.
By getting prices from at least three estate agents, you’ll be able to gauge what your asking price should be. Don’t be too greedy or flattered if one offers you more money than another, and always look at other house prices around you to get an idea of what you should be asking for.
Negotiate with Your Estate Agent
When you’re dealing with an estate agent, you’ll often have to pay them commission for the sale of your property, regardless of whether it’s residential or commercial. Most of them will want to take a certain percentage of the overall sale price. However, you should try to negotiate on this and haggle them down. It’s also worth trying to negotiate the ‘lock-in period’, which is the time where you can’t switch between different estate agents.
Use Your Estate Agent to Your Advantage
Once you’ve hired an estate agent to sell your property, make sure you’re getting as much out of them as possible.
Estate agents should know how to present your property’s key features to prospective buyers, so always ask them whether you’ve done enough to make your home saleable before you have your first viewing. They might be able to offer you good advice on what people in the area are expecting.
Make Your Home Appealing
When someone’s viewing your property, they want to be able to visualise themselves in there. So, make sure everything’s in good order, that there isn’t much clutter and you’ve created a warm, inviting ambience with candles and lighting. Try to look at your home through the eyes of a potential buyer – what would they like to see?
By doing these things, it’ll help increase your chances of selling your property, and within a quick time frame.
