If you’re considering putting your property on the market, you’re likely feeling a mix of emotions. You may be excited by the potential of a new home or a change of scenery, but you may also be feeling overwhelmed by the process. Selling a home is a huge undertaking and requires careful consideration of a variety of factors. Thankfully, with the right planning and guidance, you can make the process of selling your home a successful and rewarding experience. 

Before selling your home, there are a few things that all estate agents would recommend you do. These can help you to prepare for putting your property on the market and ensure you’re getting the most out of the sale. Below are some things we would suggest all prospective sellers do in the early stages of putting their property on the market. 

Research the current market

Researching the current property market can be incredibly useful for anyone who is considering selling their home. Knowing the current market conditions and trends can help you to determine whether now is the right time to sell and it will give you an idea of how quickly you will be able to sell. Additionally, researching can help you to identify any potential issues that you may face during the selling process, such as the availability of potential buyers. Knowing this information upfront can help you plan and prepare for a successful sale.

Contact a local estate agent

A local estate agent is the best person to contact when it comes to selling a house, they have the knowledge and resources to ensure the sale of your property is successful. An estate agent can provide an accurate property valuation and advise on pricing strategies to get the right price for your house. They can also assist with marketing, conduct viewings and negotiate with potential buyers. Not to mention, they can connect you to legal professionals and other necessary services to facilitate a smooth and successful sale.

Make any required repairs

Making repairs and decorating your house before selling can be beneficial in many ways. It can help to increase the value of your property and make it more inviting to prospective buyers. Fixing any minor issues and giving the house a deep clean will show buyers that you have taken good care of the property too, which can increase the likelihood of them putting an offer in. Ultimately, finding the time to make repairs and decorate can be an important part of getting the most out of the sale of your home.

Stage the property

Decluttering and staging your property can be more beneficial than people tend to realise. It can make your house look more spacious and modern, and make it more appealing to potential buyers. When you remove personal items, it can help buyers to visualise themselves living in the property as well and it will make the space seem more move-in ready, which is ideal for buyers who are looking for a quick, hassle-free move.

Find important documents 

When you sell your home, you will require various documents that you have probably stored away over the years. Finding these documents before you put your property on the market can help to prevent delays in the selling process and enable you to progress with the sale as soon as you find a buyer. These documents can also provide valuable information to potential buyers, helping them make an informed decision about your property.
