The steps you can take to help sell you home

The steps you can take to help sell you home

When it comes to selling your home it can often take some time for it to sell, but there are things that you can do to help improve your chances of getting a quick sale. Here are some of the top ways that you can help sell your home faster.

Use Your Existing Network

One of the easiest ways to get your property seen by more people is to use people you know to help promote it. Whether this is by telling them to tell their friends and people they know, or by sharing it on their social media channels to help spread the word.

One of the more creative ways of doing this that we have seen on social media recently is offering people an incentive to share your post if it leads to a successful sale. It could be cash, a gift voucher or something else that people would love to get their hands on simply by sharing a post on their Facebook profile.

Prepare for Viewings

Ensuring that your home is in the best state possible when it comes to property viewings is incredibly important. There are a number of tips that make sure you don't put off potential buyers when they come to have a look around. First impressions are a major thing when it comes to someone looking to invest buying your property so don't let them be put off by something that could be easily avoided.

We've put together some blog posts in the past that give you some extra tips on preparing for viewings.

Take a Step Back

If you're carrying out the viewings of your own property then it's extremely important to take a hands off approach and let the viewers walk around your home on their own. Letting them wander around from room to room without a tour guide directing them at every opportunity will allow them to feel comfortable and imagine themselves living in your home as if it were their own.

Don't completely ditch them and always be on hand to answer their questions if they have any at the end, but give them some space when it comes to walking around.

Don't Use Your Own Photos

One of the first things a potential buyer might see will be photographs of your property. This is where their initial interest will come from, so you want to make sure that you really get their interest immediately rather than just brushing past your home and moving on to the next one.

Many people will opt for taking their own property photos to save money, but this can quite often be a cost cutting alternative that can hinder their ability to sell and cost thousands in price reductions when their home won't sell.

By using our professional photographers to take pictures of your home, you can be assured that they know how to make the most of the space that you have and display your home in the best possible way to get that initial interest spark and encourage more people to view your home.
