However, there is a range of steps you should follow in selling your home, and we will take you through these now.
Start the process of preparing your home for a sale
It is never too early to start decluttering your home, and you will feel the benefits of preparing your home for a sale. Even if you intend to sell your home much later in 2020 (or beyond), decluttering your home now will go a long way to ensuring your property is at its best by the time it goes to market.
Simple tips to consider when preparing your home for the market include:
- Mowing the lawn and removing all weeds
- Cleaning all windows and making sure your frames are in excellent condition
- Repairing any gaps or holes in fences or exterior walls
- Upgrading the light bulbs in your property
- Sprucing the home up and make it look as appealing as possible
If you undertake a lot of small tasks around your home, there will be a significant benefit by the end of the process.
Instruct a local and experienced estate agent
It should go without saying you need an estate agent to sell your home, but you have a lot of options to consider. There is a range of online agents to choose from these days, but right now, they don’t provide the standard of service you are looking for, especially as a first-time vendor.
We know cost is imperative when selling your home, but remember low cost doesn’t always equate to the best value for money. Online agents are more affordable than traditional agents, but they often provide fewer services. You will also find these agents don’t have local knowledge.
Local knowledge is essential in selling your home, because this is how you connect with likely buyers. We are pleased to say we have assisted many Bournemouth vendors connect with buyers, and this is an integral process of selling their home.
