Follow these straightforward tips in order to sell your property at the drop of a hat.
When you are attempting to sell your property there are a number of things for you to consider. It pays to do your homework to make sure that your property sits correctly in the market to give it the best exposure possible. Work your way through these simple steps to get the offers rolling in.
1. Check your competition.
The Internet is a great tool to find out what is happening in the rest of the market. Take some time to search other listings to see if your property is a competitive option. This is a great way to ascertain if you have the correct value for the property too and whether there are any other units in your building for sale.
2. Get your property ready for marketing.
Don’t jump the gun and get the property on the market without decent photography showing the property at its best. Spend time getting the property ready by making sure it is presentable, tidy, and decluttered. This is your opportunity to show the property at its best so do just that.
3. Make it easy for your agent.
Properties tend to show better when no one is at home. This gives the purchaser a chance to have a good nose around without feeling hurried. When your agent books a viewing, give them breathing space but also make sure they have access to the property and can obtain keys easily. If you are living at the property and can, prep the home for the agent by making sure its tidy, open the curtains and turn the air conditioning on. Remember first impressions do count.
4. Be open.
Don’t expect the first person to walk through the door to take your property at full asking price. Request honest feedback from your agent to see if there is anything you can do to sell or let your property quicker. If you receive an offer which is subject to a few conditions, then consider these too as may pay off rather than leaving your property empty for any longer.
