If you have decided 2020 is the year you make a move in the property market, good for you. There is a number of reasons why there is optimism in the market for the year which lies ahead. If you have held off from moving home in recent times, or you have recently decided you would like a change of scenery, we are here to assist you with the sales process.
At Hunters Camberwell, we are pleased to say we have helped many vendors sell their home, and we have some tips for vendors looking to move in 2020.
You must do your research
It has almost become a cliché, but if you want to sell your home, preparation is vital. Working with a skilled and experienced estate agent makes sense because we are aware of what must be done to ensure you make the right moves when selling your home.
The importance of accurate property value cannot be overstated. If you have too high or too low a value on your home, you will struggle to connect with likely buyers. It is best to instruct a local buyer to provide you with a valuation because local matters affect what buyers are willing to pay for the property.
You must look to add value
By adding value to your home, you increase the price, which means you can receive more money when you sell your home. It, therefore, makes sense that vendors should consider adding value to their home. However, when you add value to a property, it makes them more attractive, and this may be the crucial factor in selling your home.
There is a lot of homes in the market, and this is a competitive marketplace. While you are competing for the attention of likely buyers, you are not alone. There are many vendors who want to attract buyers to their property, and you need to make sure your home stands out for all the right reasons.
When you make home improvements which add value to your home, you increase your chances of connecting with a buyer. This can only help you sell your home, so look for ways to add value to your property before you enter the market.
Start the decluttering process as soon as possible
Even if you aren’t planning on selling your home fast, there is a lot to be said for starting the decluttering process as quickly as possible. Depending on the size of your home and the number of belongings you have, decluttering may take a long time. Therefore, the more work you do in clearing out your home, the better.
A spacious and clean home is more appealing and attractive to buyers. In a competitive marketplace where you need to stand out, decluttering is a vital part of the sales process.
