Selling Your Home? Sell It Fast!
If you’re planning on selling your home, you have a pretty big process on your hands. Selling your house involves a significant number of steps, from making sure that your home is ready to go on the market, to listing it on the market, to conducting viewings and – finally – settling offers and sealing the deal. Here’s some information that should help make this process as successful as possible, getting you the best price on your property as possible!
Should You Renovate?
Before you list your property on the market, it’s a good idea to make sure that it will stand out on the market. You need your property to be above and beyond the quality of our houses in the area to encourage people to choose yours and to be willing to pay good money for it. This is why many people will renovate their homes before listing. They’ll add desirable features that will draw buyers in!
Loft conversions are a popular renovation in inner city areas where properties with more rooms are relatively scarce. Having one more bedroom than other properties in your area immediately helps your property to sell for more. In fact, a loft conversion can even increase your property value by 21%! This renovation can also prove to be relatively quick and inexpensive to carry out and can help you to sell your house fast.
If you have a larger property that you’re hoping to sell to families, an extra room can be attractive too. If you have sufficient land around your property to extend, an extension can add a lot of value to the space. Just make sure you don’t use up a huge portion of your garden area, as families tend to love gardens for kids and pets.
If you have a small bedroom in your property, it might be more appealing as a bathroom rather than a box room. Almost every home could benefit from extra bathroom space, so consider having this work carried out. If the small room is attached to another larger room, you could even potentially convert it into an en suite.
Use a High Quality Estate Agents
Once your home is ready to go, it’s important to use a quality estate agent. Sure, you’ll have to pay them some sort of commission. But you will benefit from mass exposure, guided viewings and help with the legalities of selling your property, giving you a better chance of getting a better deal overall. It also takes a lot of weight off your shoulders. Remember, you often get what you pay for. Very low cost estate agents don’t tend to be as experienced in their field.
Sure, selling a home may be a relatively complex process. But once you secure that sale and can move on to whatever else you intend to do, it will all be worth it. So, take your time, don’t rush and follow some of the above steps to sell as best possible!
