Tips for Vendors

Spring clean

Having a spring clean and removing clutter will bring out the potential of your property. Eleminate pet and smoking odours from furniture, curtains and carpets.

Choose the right agent

An agent that markets heavily is likely to get your property sold quicker. Negotiating lower fees can prove to be a false economy, as agents may be less enthusiastic to push your property.

Do it yourself

If you have the know how, why not tackle the smaller maintainence jobs around the house yourself. Minor repairs are can be easy to carry out and reflect well on your property.

Market valuation

Your agent will have based your market valuation on a wealth of industry experience and comparables. Trust your agent but feel free to ask how they arrived at that valuation.

Decorate

Giving your property a lick of paint before putting it on the market can make all the difference in helping to attract potential buyers. Remember to use neutral colours!

Pets

Ask friends or family to look after pets during viewings and avoid cooking food with strong odours before viewings to make your home more inviting.

Instructing solicitors

Your Estate Agent can usually recommend a good solicitor to deal with the conveyancing.They will keep in regular contact with the solicitor to make sure everything is running smoothly.

Boards

If you have permission to, have a board erected outside the property, this will help to generate more interest in the property. Your agent will gladly do this for you.

Home information packs

This comprises a Home Condition Report which can highlight any major problems to a surveyor and an Energy Performance Certificate to show how energy efficient a property is.

Accepting offers

Your agent will be the middleman and will present every offer that is made, the price you will be prepared to accept will depend on market conditions and how quickly you need to sell.
