Preparing your house for the market
When you decide to sell your home, there is a lot of work involved with preparing your house for the market. In association with your estate agent, determine who the most likely buyer is and stage the property to their needs and requirement. Cleaning and decluttering the property is the initial part of preparing your home but in order to grab attention, you want the right buyer to be wowed by your home.
Consider what the most likely buyer wants from your home and then make sure this can be found in your home. Your agent will help with this, but you need to make sure you find the right agent. Look for an agent with:
- Experience and a specialism in your property type and area
- The cost of the agent and what you receive for this service
- Reviews and reputation of the agent
Ideally, a skilled estate agent will lead the way in preparing your house for the market and at Innovate Estate Agents; we believe we provide vendors with the guidance they need to ensure their property reaches the right people in the most appropriate manner.
There are also compliance matters to deal with when selling your home, and you need to have the right paperwork in place. You need to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) before you can place your home on the market.
With respect to viewings, it is best to let the agent lead the way. After all, agents should be experienced in this matter. You should have realised by now that selling your home is simpler when you develop a close relationship with your agent and at Innovate Estate Agents, we are the professionals to trust.
