When we put our home up for sale we all want to sell quickly and without any hiccups. The average time to sell a home is around 10 weeks although sometimes this can differ greatly with some properties being on the market for almost a year. Using an online estate agent like Zevizo Properties can make sell your property quick and for low cost but to help get your property sold that little bit quicker check out these 5 tips.
1.Differentiate from the competition
In some instances selling your home is like selling any other product or service. You have to have something that sets your product or service out from the rest. Take a long, hard, honest look at your property and ask yourself “Compared to the competition in the area what makes my property more desirable?” This could be any number of things from price, to bedrooms, to garden size. Find your unique selling point and sell it. Make it prominent in the adverts and during viewings make sure viewers are always aware of the benefits.
2.Clean and Tidy
You don’t need everything white, clinical and minimal just make sure your property is clean, neat and tidy. Get rid of small marks and blemishes on walls and doors. This doesn’t need to be a costly make over most marks can be cleaned up using a tester pot from your local DIY store.
Rent a carpet cleaner for the day and clean any stains or marks on floors even if you think your carpets are clean you’ll be surprised at what a once over with a carpet cleaner can do to freshen up a room.
Good photographs mean a great first impression. Make sure the pictures you’re using are clear and show the property in its best light. You don’t need to go out and buy yourself the best camera with a wide angle lens, keep it simple, get as much light in as possible and make the rooms clean and tidy. To get that extra edge you could hire a specialist property photographer who specialises in showing properties in their best light.
Make sure that potential buyers have as little time as possible to get cold feet. Get all your property documents, safety certificates together in one pack clearly labelled before your property goes to market. Once you have received an offer instruct a conveyancing solicitor to act on your behalf and get the ball rolling as quickly as possible.
To get your house sold faster make sure you’re flexible. Give the buyer control over move in dates and extend your availability. If the buyer wants to chat daily on the phone about the ins and outs of the property details give them that chance. Be as accommodating as possible to make sure the process runs smooth and without too many hitches.
