When offers don’t come in following viewings, selling your home can be frustrating. Especially when you don’t know why others don’t want to buy your home and you feel like there is nothing you can do to help.
However, you can make a bigger difference than you might realise to your sale. In this blog we discuss things you can do to help get your home sold.
Tweak the price
“When taking location, demand and physical attributes into consideration, a vendor should realise the true value of their property and try to keep their marketing price realistic.” says Bobby Singh, founder of Love Your Postcode.
Studies show that people will avoid viewing a property altogether if they consider it overpriced. This means lowering your price will get more people through your doors and will undoubtedly have an impact on the interest you have on your property.
“An agent should secure the best value in the best time depending on what the vendor wants. To do this we value our home with market evidence. The price should always maximise the potential.” says Bobby Singh.
“While the current market conditions persist, if a property has been advertised for 12 – 15 weeks and has not sold, then something should be done.”
Well looked after, warm and welcoming homes sell faster than any other property. If the viewer can imagine a new and happy life in your home, it’ll make the house infinitely easier to sell.
Try to see your home as it will be seen by a viewer seeing the property for the first time and make the best first impression externally and internally. Consider taking out the bins, removing weeds, clearing clutter and trying a new coat of paint on the front door before photos and viewings take place.
General maintenance must be conducted on the property while the house is on the market. There is no time to relax!
Choose the right estate agent for you
If your estate agent hasn’t been putting in the work to sell your house, then it may be time to shop around.
Here at Love Your Postcode we give everything to each and every sale, which is why we have been named the best estate agents in Birmingham for customer service. Top agents work proactively to achieve the best price for your home.
It’s always a good idea to consider the state of the market if you are thinking of selling. A sudden drop in the market could mean that you lose money on the property rather than breaking even or gaining money.
Your agent should be knowledge about the property climate in your area, and give you an honest answer to whether or not you should sell now.
Listen to feedback
Be active in ascertaining the pros and cons of your property. Ask your agent for the client’s feedback regularly and act upon it to make the next viewing better than the last.
