Top tips from the experts on selling your home in 2014
IF you’re preparing your home for a sale in the early months of 2014, congratulations, you’ve decided to bite the bullet and enter the housing market early with determination. Here, Strutt and Parker lists five things that early bird sellers should think about:
1. Selling your home is like a marketing campaign
If you want to sell your home, having an effective selling strategy is crucial. You’ll likely be facing some stiff competition, so a carefully planned campaign is critical if you want to attract the right sort of buyer.
Once you’re preparing your home for the market, it becomes a marketing campaign, and not a valuation exercise.
The most important thing about selling your house is getting people to come and look at it in the first place, so focus all your efforts on encouraging buyers to come and view. Of course, finding a suitable guide price is also important.
