Vendors: Helping You Get The Best Price

Hendon Property Sales Advice

Selling your property can be a pretty stressful experience. Belvoir Hendon are here to make the process as pain-free and enjoyable as possible. We've put together some tips below that will help with the sale of your property.

Presentation Is Vital

  • First impressions count for so much - ensure the outside of the house is neat and tidy
  • Emphasise space - it's a good idea to make sure the property is as clutter-free as possible. Ensure that all visible surfaces (floors and table tops) are clear and that cupboard doors are closed
  • Maximise light by having blinds and curtains open
  • Odours really do matter - open windows to air the property prior to a viewing. Perhaps put on a freshly brewed mug of coffee or go the extra mile by baking a cake. The small things really do count!
  • Minimise buyer concerns - carry out minor repairs. It could be worth touching up slightly damaged walls or stained carpets - the less the buyer has to worry about the better
  • Security - this is very much for your own peace of mind. Please keep all valuables locked away
  • Viewings - we'd certainly suggest being as flexible as possible. If you'd like to ramp up the number of viewings please do let us know and we can look into the possibility of an open day

Be Prepared For a Fast Sell

  • Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) - this is a legal requirement when selling your property. If you're having problems obtaning one please do let us know and we'd be delighted to help
  • Instruct a Solicitor - If this has been finalised before your property has been put on the market it could save around four weeks once the sale has been agreed.
  • Fixtures & Fittings - prepare an inventory of what you'll be including in the sale. This will give the buyer a good idea of what they're getting. Essentially the more information the buyer has the better

Planning For the Move

  • Remember to book a removal company and storage if needed. Save time by ordering boxes and packing yourself
  • Change of address - remember to notify your utilities and internet providers, bank, the DVLA and your local council
  • Final bills - provide utilities with final readings, and help your buyer by leaving details of the services the property is connected to
  • Redirect your post - there’s a charge for this, but it’s worth it. Visit royalmail.co.uk for forms.

We hope this information has been useful. Of course, if you have any other questions or need further advice, please don't hesitate to get in touch on 0203 875 6000 or hendon@belvoir.co.uk
