Top tips on being ready to sell

Published in Magazine on 3 August 2021 by our Marketing Team

 
According to Rightmove, enquiries from buyers are up by 18% when compared to the same period last year.

 
If you decide to sell right now, you’re pretty much guaranteed to get high levels of interest following your market launch.
 
Here are our five top tips for selling your home in a busy market
 
 
Talk to the right people and stay informed
 
Whilst it’s easy to get caught up in the post-lockdown rush, remember that moving house is a big decision.
 
Make sure that selling is the right decision for you and that you have the best local advice to help you achieve the best deal possible.
 
Get certified
 
If you’ve made considerable renovations to your home, ensure you have the correct certifications.
 
If people are interested in your home, they will likely want to see them.
 
Check your property
 
If you’re selling a newly built or converted property, you must check it was built under a building standards indemnity scheme.
 
Lenders often won’t provide mortgages if newly built or converted properties are not covered by a warranty scheme or Professional Consultants Certificate (PCC).
 
This will be an issue if your buyers need a mortgage to buy your property.
 
We’d suggest getting in touch with someone that can provide you with a PCC, confirming that your new build has been constructed in accordance with the drawings and instructions provided by building control.
 
Carry out any minor repairs
 
Disrepair can seriously put off homebuyers.
 
The amount of work that needs doing to the property can impact how much interest you receive. Furthermore, doing any refurbishment before starting the selling process is always a good way to increase the market value of your property.
 
If there are any serious structural issues with your property, you should get them fixed before viewings begin.
 
Get in touch with a professional
 
If you want your home to sell quickly, always contact a professional.
 
We provide a bespoke selling service that is adapted to each individual property.

One in three properties receive an offer one hour after viewing

The housing market once again exceeds expectations after a poor reception from the chancellor’s mini-budget and regular talk of a possible slowdown, as current research suggests that in 2022, almost a third (31%) of properties are now receiving offers within an hour, compared to a mere 7% in 2018.
