Selling your home can be a daunting process, from the valuation to the exchanging of contracts. If you are selling your property for the first time, you will want to avoid these mistakes. * 

Avoid unflattering photos 

With many potential buyers looking for homes online, it is incredibly important to make sure your house looks its best when the photographer arrives.

Ensure all clutter is packed away and all spaces have been thoroughly cleaned to ensure that viewers can focus on the house. 

You will want to showcase your property’s best attributes to make it stand out from the crowd. Make good use of natural light to create the best possible first impression. 

Problems inside your home 

If there are any problems with the property, they will be uncovered during the inspection process. Therefore, you are left with two options: 

  • Fix the problem ahead of time. This will allow you to acquire your property’s full value. 
  • Price your home accordingly, taking the problem into account. 

We would always recommend discussing any known issues with your appointed estate agent. This way, you can ensure that you are making the right decision! 

Not thoroughly preparing for viewings

Failing to prepare your property for viewings could put buyers off purchasing your home. You want the viewer to imagine themselves living in the house. This means tidying up before viewings, eliminating unpleasant odours, and keeping a neutral tone in your house.  

Of course, one of the most important steps is picking the right estate agent. If you have any questions when preparing your home for sale, do not hesitate to contact us.
