Selling your home isn’t easy. Even though there is a prominent level of demand for property, there is a healthy level of competition for vendors in the market. This is as true in the local area as it is across the country, and at Mitchells Estate Agents, we’re pleased to say we have helped many local vendors sell their home.
Our expertise helps you make informed decisions, and with our support, you can avoid the mistakes and overcome the most common problems to make a sale.
If your garden area is lovely, but the streets or neighbouring gardens are messy, you aren’t going to have as much of a positive impact as you would like. Therefore, if you are cleaning your garden, it makes sense to clean around your home too.
Always ask permission before you attempt to clean a neighbours property, but if you explain the situation, many neighbours will be happy to assist you. At the very least, they will hopefully be happy for you to carry out the work!
This may give you more tasks to carry out, but it is vital you make the best impression on prospective buyers.
When you are selling your home, there will be big tasks to take care of. If there is a significant repair job to be finished off or you are upgrading a room, these tasks have to be finished. However, if you solely focus on big problems, and overlook small matters, you will struggle to sell your home.
Some of the small problems that can derail a sale include flaking paint, dirty skirting boards, ashtrays filled with cigarettes and nicotine marked walls. You may not think these issues are a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but when it comes to impressing prospective buyers, it may have a negative impact.
If you don’t have the time or skills to take care of these small jobs, enlist a professional to help. This step will incur a cost, but it will provide a better outcome.
If your home has a stunning feature or something which stands it apart from other houses, in a positive way, focus on it. Too many vendors present their home as a run of the mill property. If you have a run of the mill property, this is a suitable strategy, but if there is something that buyers will love about your house, make it central to your promotional activities.
In a competitive marketplace, you need to make sure your home stands out for all the right reasons. Drawing attention to the most popular or appealing features of your home will drive traffic to your listings, hopefully helping you reach out to buyers.
If you are looking to sell your home, it would be a mistake not to seek help or guidance from industry experts. At Mitchells Estate Agents, we are pleased to say we have helped many local vendors sell their home, and we look forward to assisting you, so please get in touch.
