Prepare to sell

The first thing you need to do when it comes to selling your home is getting it prepared to sell. This mainly consists of cosmetic duties; such as de-cluttering each room, giving it a fresh lick of paint and making sure that any quick fixes are just that, quickly fixed! But if you are wanting to add value to the property, and sell it in the near future rather than the immediate future, it is definitely worth doing some bigger preparation.

This could include making sure the whole house has central heating and double glazing windows.  Or even adding an en-suite or extension! Many housing reports state that extensions especially can add 20-25% to the value of the property. So if you have the time and money, it’s worth doing for when you sell.

Get it onto the market

Once you’ve got your house ready to sell, the next big thing is putting it on the property market with the help of your chosen local estate agency, which hopefully is us, Cardwells Estate Agents Bury! We will be able to help you decide how much your property is worth, how much to put it on the market for and then after mutually discussing the property particulars finally get it on the market.

Ready for viewings

Now that your house is on the property for sale market, it needs to be looking the best for viewings. Whether that’s official viewings; with people making appointments to come and take a look inside. Or unofficial viewings; which means people just walking or driving by but still taking an interest.

Just take care to make your house look as appealing as possible. If that means keeping the grass in your garden trimmed, cleaning away toys, books and clutter or even just having a fresh pot of coffee brewing in the kitchen! It all may seem trivial to you, but it could be key to your prospective buyer.

Time to move out

Now that you’ve taken on board all these tips, it’s a sure-fire thing that your house will be getting inundated with offers (we hope!) So it’s finally time to consider your offers and choose which is the best for you.

So make sure you take everything into account; whether it be how are they buying the house, with cash? Can they move in straight away or do they need to sell their own house first?

Or do you have somewhere new to move into yet? Make sure you consider everything before accepting an offer and don’t be alarmed if it’s under the asking price! Cardwells Estate Agents will always negotiate the best possible price on your behalf.
