Putting your house on the market can be an exciting process, but if you’ve been waiting weeks for an offer, it doesn’t seem so exciting any more. So, to encourage viewers, and offers to ultimately sell your home, then follow these tips.
Invest in Good Marketing
Your home might be the most beautiful to grace the planet, but if no one knows about it, then no one will be interested. Pique interest by making sure that your estate agent has a plan. If you’re using a traditional estate agent, then it doesn’t hurt to ask what their marketing plan is going to be. If you’re not satisfied, then consider finding a different one. If you’re using an online one, then you’ll usually buy a package that will include certain internet marketing features.
Take Good Photos
Whoever you’ve opted to go with, good photos are essential. These will be the main hook for your potential buyers, so they need to be really clear and portray your property in the best light possible. Take photos with a high quality camera, from the corners of rooms, so they look as big and open as possible.
If you’re not happy with the photos that the estate agent has taken or used in your property listing, then make sure you tell them and ask them to change it to another.
Top Up Your Decoration
Making sure that your home is spick, span and up to scratch is essential when it comes to viewings. Before you even put your home on the market, declutter and throw out unnecessary possessions. Not only will it make your home seem clean and calm, it will increase the likelihood of a sale, and make packing and moving that little bit easier.
Practice Your Tour
If you have opted for an online estate agent, then you’re probably going to have to conduct viewing yourself. But don’t worry, the fact that you know the property better than the estate agent works to your advantage. Practicing your tour is always a good idea too. Don’t rehearse it too much, otherwise it becomes too stiff, and anticipate the questions that you might be asked so you’re fully prepared.
House Buying Companies
If you’re at the end of your tether, and you need to sell, then consider a house buying company like Property Rescue. They can buy your property for cash quickly, so you’re not left waiting for an offer.
