Top Tips For Vendors

We’ve put together a few our favourite ‘Top Tips’ to help you sell your home.

Prepare your property inside and out

Make sure your property is shown in the best light. When the photographs are being taken and viewings are being done you need to ensure the following: the property is clean and tidy, there is no dirty washing lying around, dishes are put away, beds are made, toys are tidied away and the gardens are tended to.

Know your property

When people are buying properties, they ask a lot of questions, be prepared. Most common questions are: Is it freehold or leasehold? is there any ground rent or service charges? Where is the boiler located? How old is the boiler? Has it been serviced every year? Is the loft boarded? What made you buy the property in the first place?

Choose the right estate agency/agent

Make sure your agent is right for you. Check their reviews, see how they perform online, check communication skills and what services they offer. Are you ted into a contact?

Use high quality photos

We carry out photography in-house. At the Vendors request we outsource our photography to a professional company; they take professional, high quality photos, do a full RICS floorplan and a 360 Virtual tour.

Choose the right solicitor

Choosing the right solicitor is so important when selling a property. Going for the cheapest is not the best option. Shop local and check reviews. Also, make sure you have all the documents you need to sell your property ready to supply to the solicitor. For example, safety certificates, EPC, any warranties, planning permission etc. Check the work load the Solicitors have, are they too busy to take on your services? You need to find out who exactly will be dealing with your purchase. Their full name, direct contact number and email address and company name and full address.

Get the value right

It is so important when marketing a property that it is listed at the right price. If listed too high, the property will lose interest and will take longer to sell. If selling to investors only (if there is a tenant in situ)- check what the rental yield would be.
