Four Ways to Help Sell Your House Quickly
There are many factors that come into play when you are looking to sell your home, or any property for that matter. How you present your home to a potential buyer is critical to the sales process, and additional to that, the team you get to handle the sale process is just as important.
Let’s look at some of these elements closer.
- Curb Appeal
Like the old saying goes ‘First impressions last’ and this is so true when it comes to selling a house. Indeed, especially if you are looking for a quick house sale. If a potential buyer does a drive by of your home and sees the for sale sign up, then you need to make sure your house is best presented to appeal to any potential buyer.
Is the paintwork fresh? Are the windows clean? Is the garden tidy?
If the answer is ‘no’ to any of these questions, then you need to think about the impression you are making to a potential buyer, will they be turned away from the purchase simply by the outside appearance of the property?
Most definitely they will, a friend of mine was looking to sell his house, they put an ad in the paper saying property for sale Bootle.
They lost the first two potential buyers because they were put off by the outdated paintwork, once they realised this, they spent some money getting the house painted throughout, the next vendor bought the house after one viewing, the investment they made on the upkeep made the sale, a point worth noting.
- Let there be light
Nobody likes gloomy rooms, so if your house is naturally dark, then you need to make sure you do as much as you can to lighten the mood so to speak, paint your walls a nice light neutral colour like magnolia, and the skirting boards white.
The light colours create the illusion of space, because after all, people look to move because they need more room in their lives, and that’s why they are walking through your home, and moving your furniture around.
They are planning their new life, so you need to make them feel they will get all the ample space they need to build a new home.
Getting the right price for your home is the reason you are looking to sell, and this may occur under different circumstances. You may need to sell house fast for quick financial release, or you may be prepared to sit and wait till you get exactly the right price you want.
Whatever the circumstance may be, getting the right valuation for your home is critical, the best way to do this is to get at least three different quotes from reputable estate agents in your area.
Once you have done this, you will be able to gage an accurate average price for the value of your home. This then enables you to clarify the time you can take to sell, whether that be quick or over a prolonged period of time if you are no in a great rush.
- Sales Team
Having the correct team in place to assist you in a sale is paramount to the process, solicitors and estate agents are the key to the process, you can always use a specialist estate agent, for his property sale my friend used James Kristian, they assisted her in everything from the valuation to the appointment of solicitors. It’s a method that worked well for her.
Though there is plenty of information out there to assist you in making the right choices, but if you stick to these four steps closely, you will go a long way in assisting your property sale.
