Want To Sell Your House? Property Selling Tips For Homeowners

By Stuart Griffin

Selling your house can be a daunting task, as there are a lot of factors that you should consider when embarking on the house selling process. Here are simple tips to follow to ensure that the house sale runs smoothly.

1. Depersonalize Your Property To Sell Your House. If you have ever visited a show house, you will certainly know that the property is immaculate and, sometimes, sparsely, furnished because real estate agents encourage home sellers to depersonalize their real homes. As a matter of fact, this is a good strategy to employ when you want to sell your home because it allows prospective home buyers to view your home as their potential property. But when a buyer sees your family pictures hanging on the wall, or any other personal items, it could destroy their illusions about living in the house themselves, and eliminate your chance to sell your property. Thus, it prevent deterring home buyers from purchasing your home, so put away family pictures, collectible items, sports trophies, souvenirs and knick-knacks. You can actually pack these items into boxes or rent a storage room to keep them until your property is sold.

2. Repair House Interiors And Exteriors To Sell Your Home. When viewing a house, prospective home buyers would often switch on light switches, open cupboards or check taps and fittings. It’s for this reason that it is important to ensure that everything in your house is working in order and is aesthetically pleasing. For example, all your sink fixtures should look shiny and new. However if this cannot be accomplished by cleaning, buy new ones. Make sure all the hot and cold water knobs are easy to turn and that the taps don’t leak, but if they do, you should hire a plumber to help you with replacing the washers.

Most real estate agencies would tell you that the appearance of the exterior of your property could drastically effect whether or not you sell your house. A home buyer’s first impression is typically based upon his or her view of the property from the curb or pavement. To enhance your home’s curb appeal, you can plant bushes and flowers. Naturally, a colorful garden would add a splash of vibrancy to your property and is sure to create a favorable first impression; thus keep your lawn evenly cut, and free of brown spots.

3. Do Not DIY (Do-It-Yourself). In an attempt to avoid real estate agent fees, a lot of people choose to sell their real homes themselves. This poses numerous problems as few home sellers can afford the advertising costs needed to attract home buyers. This simply means that the property will spend a long time on the housing market until the home seller, desperate to sell his or her property, substantially lowers their asking housing price. Studies shows that three out of four properties that aren’t being sold through real estate agencies or home buyer companies are being sold for less than the asking housing price, and the average time a property remains on the housing market before it is sold has increased from eight to ten weeks.

4. Practice Caution With Real Estate Agencies. When selling your real property through an agent, pay careful attention to the various mandates available. Lots of real estate agents would encourage you to sign an exclusive mandate, which means that agent would get commission from the sale of the property, regardless of who sells it. In addition, your house could be on the property market for a year without the real estate agent making any headway in selling your house, and apparently, there’s nothing that you as property seller can do about this.

5. To Sell Your Home Fast, Contact A Property Buying Specialist. Sell your home today to a reputable home buying company. They would certainly eliminate all uncertainty -a property buying company will buy your house – and it will be according to a timescale that suits you. A property buying company offers a free house value assessment and within 48 hours of this assessment, you would then receive a guaranteed cash offer for your real home. In addition, unlike some of the traditional way of selling houses, a property specialist company promises a house sale that is fee-free. They remove the frustration and stress from the house selling process and assure a house sale that is simple, clear and fast.
