Tips to

Help You Sell Your Property

Selling your property can be a daunting prospect, but our team of property experts has put together some top tips to help speed up the process.

De-clutter

The first thing to remember when putting your house on the market is that prospective buyers need to picture themselves living in your home. This means de-cluttering and de-personalising your property as much as you can to help them achieve this vision.

Make any minor repairs to the property

It is always a good idea to make any minor repairs to the property, since buyers are on the lookout for signs of neglect. This can involve replacing light bulbs, fixing broken door handles and touching up paint.

Tidy your garden

A garden can be a big selling point for many prospective buyers so its important that it doesn't appear unmanageable. Try to mow the lawn or scale back any unkempt foliage to make it look as inviting as possible.

Extra touches

Make sure the hallway is inviting so that perspective buyers get a nice feel for your property as soon as they step through the door – small touches like a nice vase of flowers will really help lift a space.

Choose the right estate agent

It's crucial that you choose the right estate agent to market your property as they can answer any of the trickier questions and help bring your home to life when talking to prospective buyers. Ensure your agent has the relevant qualifications and accreditations such as being members of The Ombudsman Scheme. This will show that they have the right level of experience and knowledge to provide you with a good service.
