Sell Your Property Fast with Sell My Home
Price to Sell
If you want to sell your house fast, you need to get the price right. One of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make when you put your home on the market is how to price your property and the asking price you choose can have a big impact on the speed of your home’s sale. The valuations team at SellMyHome will give you an estimated price for your property, but ultimately, it’s your decision how much you wish to list the asking price of your home at. Pricing your property realistically should help in ensuring that your property sells fast – if it’s overpriced it’s likely to take far longer to sell than if it’s priced to sell. If it’s priced slightly lower, cash buyers may be more attracted, and if there is a lot of interest on the property – which there are likely to be if it’s being offered at a good price - best and final offers can be requested to prevent a prolonged bidding war and speed up the selling process.
With the rise of the Internet, it’s easier than ever to get maximum exposure on your property – we’re no longer reliant on marketing through high street estate agent windows or local newspapers. Rightmove gets 100 million hits a month, and Zoopla gets 50 million, while OnTheMarket only gets 5 million hits a month. That’s why at SellMyHome, we market our properties on the two major portals, whilst agents who use OnTheMarket can only list their properties on Zoopla or Rightmove – not both.
98% of people start their property search online so utilising these portals is essential, and consider how you can make your property stand out amongst the others. At SellMyHome we take professional photographs of every property we list, and can provide you with the Virtual Walkthrough service, which can help to minimise timewasters by allowing people to view your property before having to come see it in person.
Buy a survey on your property
Buying a survey on your property can help you to sell your house faster as you won’t end up being reliant on waiting for your buyer to get his or her own survey arranged and carried out. It’s imperative that the buyer gets a survey conducted once their offer is accepted, but you can have it ready to for the buyer when you accept an offer, rather than the buyer have to arrange for their own, and then they can buy it off you. A house survey contains a condition report, details of any problems with the property, and advice on any repairs that need to be carried out as well as outlining anything in the property that doesn’t meet building regulations. If you would like to have a survey carried out on your property SellMyHome have surveyors on hand that can provide you with a survey of your property to help with your house sale.
Instruct good solicitors
Solicitors can make or break a fast sale, so it’s important to go with good and efficient solicitors who will ensure that the conveyancing process takes place as quickly as possible. Of course, you’re also reliant on your buyer’s solicitors being good too but you can make sure everything runs smoothly on your side by choosing trusted solicitors with a good reputation. SellMyHome are more than happy to recommend you tried and tested solicitors who we have confidence in should you wish for some advice on whom to use.
