There are a few things that you can do yourself to help find the best buyer in the fastest possible timeframe.
- De clutter your home – you may be moving home because you need more space or have a family on the way, but its best not to show this to your buyers. Any children’s toys, boxes, bikes, golf clubs excess clothes and shoes can be packed away into storage to show your home at its best.
- Clean and spruce up – Once you have removed some items you may find that your property could benefit from a little spring clean, any hard to reach areas that do not get as much love as other are well worth getting into and giving the house that fresh just cleaned feel for any viewings.
- Outside space – This area can often be the difference between making a swift sale and hanging around on the market. Try to make the best of any outside areas, clear out any neglected looking plants and clean down any decking, cut the lawns and tidy up any areas of plants.
To begin marketing your property you will need to first have an EPC (Energy performance certificate) to show buyers the energy rating of your home and any improvements that may be possible. Landstones can happily arrange or assist you with this.
Getting a solicitor on board early is a key part of helping your sale go through smoothly. Your solicitor will need to collate a large amount of paperwork, especially if you have made alterations to the property, this may take some time so having them work on it while you look for a buyer can shorten your timescale by weeks.
