Selling your home can be for many different reasons either positive or negative. A loss of job or divorce can lead to a forced sale just as much as a new job or moving in with a partner can. Whether it’s executed with a leap in your step or done with a heavy heart selling your property successfully will mean you have to do the same either way to get a buyer and move on.
Ideally, you want to be able to sell your home before you buy your next. Doing the latter can cause all sorts of problems and if you hold off until your property is sold then you are in an enviable position which sellers will find attractive. Often, you can ask considerably less than the property is worth and get an acceptance due to your ability to exchange quickly.
Although circumstances may not permit, try and sell your property in a robust market. Any agents worth their salt will be able to talk you through property trends of the moment and help guide you with the whole process.
First impressions with houses count enormously so check out your kerb appeal. By that I mean, on arrival, how does your property fare? Well kept lawns and borders along with more substantial elements like pristine windows and paintwork, good pointing on brickwork etc can make or break someone’s opinion of the property, so much so that regardless of what the interior is like, their impression is formed and could be detrimental to the popularity of the property.
The standard on the outside should be kept throughout the inside of the property, a good declutter along with a neutral touch with colours and textures will go far when it comes to appealing to the masses: People won’t necessarily like your taste so go for the wider market appeal.
