When it comes to selling your house, it can be an extremely stressful time! However, it doesn’t have to when you are working with the right estate agent. At Keogh Property, we will help you to sell your home quickly and a high profit. There are many factors that contribute to the successful sale of a property and if you avoid these common pitfalls, you can maximise your profits and sell your home much faster!
Here are Keogh Property’s top tips when selling your home.
Not Using an Estate Agent
If you are looking for a stress-free experience when selling your home, hire an estate agent! At Keogh Property, we keep our fees low, so in the long run, you’ll make a bigger profit than trying to sell yourself. Our estate agents can provide you with the appropriate help and advice needed during this process. This includes carrying out an effective marketing campaign, focusing on real potential buyers, and maximising your house price.
Only Using Traditional Methods When Selling Your House
Nowadays, when it comes to buying or selling your house, people will take to the internet first. While it used to be that the simple classified ads were enough, this is no longer the case. If you want to appeal to the widest audience, innovative marketing methods are needed. When you choose Keogh Property as your estate agent, we will strive to place your home on a wide variety of platforms to garner attention. This can include using online listings, editing photos and even taking people through virtual tours of your home! Our estate agents are up to date with all of the latest social media channels that are sure to get people talking about your home.
Selling Your House Too High
When selling your house, it is important not to price it too high. While you want to make as big a profit as you possibly can, pricing it too high can lead to a reduced number of interested buyers. Our estate agents use their wealth of local knowledge and experience of the current market to set an appropriate price when selling your house. You may also find that setting a slightly lower price can even garner more attention for your property as it can stimulate more competition amongst buyers.
Preparing Your Property for Sale
This can seem very obvious, but when selling your house, it is important to put in some time and effort before putting it on the market. Buyers may not be as interested if your home is not as presentable as it could be. Start by getting rid of clutter, tidy up and stage your home. This gives buyers the illusion that they are buying a lifestyle! Alongside this, when selling your house, you should also repair the basic problems. For the majority of buyers, a home that needs renovating will not be an attractive prospect. Spend that little extra bit of money to make any repairs and drum up buyer interest. Consult with Keogh Property first, however, as we can advise you on the best upgrades to make that will increase interest in your property.
