It’s All In The Preparation...
13 Apr 2011
For many, a property is one of the most valuable assets they own. So when you want to sell, you will want to get the best possible return on your investment. To do this it is necessary to devote time, money, and above all effort. Remember, you only sell once! Preparation is the answer.
So how do you prepare for a sale? While every property will offer up different factors to consider, there are 5 key points you should always address if you want to turn your sale into a success:
1. Instruct a good solicitor
Instruct a good solicitor at the onset to assist you in preparing the information you as a seller must provide. A legal expert can also help you ensure your paperwork is compliant, and deal with any planning or environmental issues.
2. Speak to a financial adviser
Check your financial circumstances and be aware of the consequences a move will have. In this current climate redeeming a mortgage is not a suitable option for everyone.
3. Calculate the cost of your move
Sometimes selling a property feels like a never-ending list of bills: agent and lawyers fees, mortgage redemption, property rental, removal costs, stamp duty and more. By calculating the cost of your move you will be ready for all the additional expenses.
4. Prepare your house
Identify and enhance the selling features of your home. The reason you bought your house may not be relevant in today’s market, so prepare the property based on current trends and fashions. This may require a small financial investment in the short term, but this is sure to pay dividends in the long run. You only have one opportunity to make a first impression.
5. Choose the right agent
You need to find the right agent to make the most out of your transaction. A good agent can also help identify your profile buyer, prepare your property and market it effectively.
Unfortunately, all the above can be somewhat overwhelming and time consuming. So if all the necessary preparation and organisation is a daunting prospect, then you need to meet Christine Penny. She knows how to important it is to make that vital first impression, and will prepare your house so as to maximise its potential.
By working closely with you, Christine can also help you choose the best marketing strategy aimed at your target buying audience. Professional, personal and discreet, Christine is there to get you a good sale, allowing you to get back to being successful at what you already do.
