Selling Tips

One of the hardest things about selling your property is to make yourself take an objective overview of your home.

As part of your preparation for selling take a good honest look at your home particularly in the following areas and you will greatly improve your chances of selling.

Five ways to achieve the best price for your property are:

Exterior

Exterior
Peeling paintwork and unsightly dustbins are definite deterrents. Make sure your home is appealing, tidy and clean for curbside inspections.

Tidy rooms

Tidy rooms
Almost impossible to achieve but worthwhile. Ensure the impression is of space and light. Cluttered rooms stay in the memory and for many people it is hard to see past clutter and mess.

No rush

No rush
Some people take 2 minutes to make their minds up, others need more time. This ultimately has no bearing on how likely someone is to buy your property. The person who takes a little longer to make up their mind will often become the most committed of purchaser. Let the house do the talking, the buyer the thinking and Elms Estates the negotiating.

Animals

Animals
Some people are frightened by over-exuberant cats and dogs. Keep them out of the way until they can be properly introduced. Be aware that animal smells may hang around longer than the buyers!

Honesty

Honesty
Sales can fall through at the first obstacle due to truth economy. If asked a direct question about the property, noise, traffic etc., be honest as buyers will find out and will not thank you for a fib.
