What to do before selling your home

There are a few things that I would recommend you do prior to putting your property on the market. Hopefully they will be helpful and you can find a purchaser nice and quick!

Get Three Valuations

All agencies provide free verbal valuations. My advice is to get three. The reason for this is that valuations are subjective and in the end it is the agents opinion. Once you have 3 then you will have a good idea on what your property is worth. A quick tip is to ask the agent if they can provide with up to date comparables. This shows that they are doing research and that they are also aware of current market conditions.

Touch Up Your Home

I am not talking about wholesale changes but a little elbow grease will go a long way. If you give the property a new coat of paint (outside is not as important) and clean up the outside spaces it will have such a large impact on the first impression that any potential purchasers will have.


Please just do this. It makes such a difference.

Prepare for photos

Dress your home best for photos and once you have decided to market the property then choose a nice bright day and the best time so that as much natural light is in the property. Good photos are your ‘shop window’ and they do result in viewings.

It is the little things that count and these tips will allow you to garner a much more favourable first impression.
