Deciding to sell your property is never an easy decision and there are lots of things to think about when you are contemplating putting it up on the market. Whether you are relocating for work, moving to a more desirable neighbourhood, making room for a growing family, getting divorced or downsizing, you want to make sure that you are fully informed regarding selling.
If you’ve never sold a property before then there are things that you need to know before listing your home for sale. Even if you aren’t a stranger when it comes to selling, times change and you may benefit from up to date advice. For anyone that has decided it is time to move on and is wanting to put their home on the market, Moovingo has put together a list of the most important things you should know.
Choosing A Good Agent
There are so many different estate agents around these days and it can be hard to decide who to choose. Lots of people are actually unaware that you can get incredible online estate agents
who may actually be able to not only sell your property quicker but also save you money too.
When choosing an agent you will want to ask the following things;
● How much their fees are
● How much commission they take
● What types of marketing they provide
● Who will be taking the photos of your house
● If you will get a floorplan and for sale sign
● If you get a dedicated property agent
Ideally, you want the process to be as easy as possible and for your agents to handle as much as possible for you, so make sure that they are capable of this before you instruct. Also, check
their reviews and see what other people have to say about their services to see if they really are as good as they say they are.
Being Sensible And Realistic Regarding Price
It is critical to price your home correctly. Understandably, you will want to get as much as you can for your property and your agents, if they charge a high commission, they may push for a higher price to win your sale but ultimately, if you overprice your home it just won’t sell. Buyers will be able to tell when a property is overpriced and it can put them off automatically.
Of course, you also don’t want to price the property too low either and miss out on potentially thousands of euros. Look at the market around you and also get some professional house
valuations to see what is realistic for your property. If you choose good experienced agents then they will also be able to advise you in this regard. Ultimately, the price you sell your property for
is your decision, so don’t let others push you towards a price you aren’t happy with.
Picking A Good Time Of Year To Sell
As well as choosing a good agent and the correct price for your property, the time of year can also affect how quickly your property sells. This may seem obvious but, being aware of when
the quieter times for the market are, can help you plan for the future.
Spring and autumn are generally considered as the best seasons to sell a house and if possible, the heart of winter should be avoided. Of course, you can still put your house on
the market at any time, but you run the risk of your property losing its ‘fresh to the market’ appeal and buyers may start to think there is something wrong with it because it hasn’t sold.
