Selling your home is a daunting prospect, but we are pleased to say we have helped many Hackney homeowners sell their house. Each sales process is unique, but we offer tailored support, and we are proud to say we have helped many local property owners sell their home efficiently.
If you’re a Hackney vendor, we have some critical tips to help you achieve a faster sale.
Find the right buyer to reach out to when selling at a particular time
It is fair to say the UK property market is active all-year-round. Spring may have been the traditional time people sold their home, and it is probably still the busiest time of year, but no matter when you want to sell your home, you can.
Autumn is the next busiest season for house sales, and if you’re a Hackney vendor looking to sell in Autumn, this is as good a time as any because:
The weather is still okay, although if you can, arrange daytime viewings to allow buyers to review your house in daylight
There are no significant holidays in Autumn which may cause a drop-off in interest
Try to find a prospective buyer who is keen to be settled in the house by Christmas, as they are motivated to conclude quickly
If you engage likely buyers and make sure your home is presented to meet their needs, there is no reason why you cannot sell your Hackney home quickly this Autumn. Of course, if you are planning on selling your home this Autumn, allocate time to ensure your garden area looks welcoming.
The colour of leaves at this time of year is distinctive, but only on trees, not on the ground. It can be challenging to tidy your garden when leaves fall, and the wind picks up, but do your best. At the very least, you need to create a clear and safe pathway to and from your home.
Place an accurate value on your home
The importance of a precise valuation cannot be overstated. If you place too low a value on your property, you lose money if you sell it, and you may lose some buyers because they are suspicious of the price. If you place too high a value on your property, buyers may not show any interest in your property.
Remember, buyers search online, and this involves setting a minimum and maximum price. If your property value is outside of that search parameter, it won’t be displayed to prospective buyers.
Declutter your home as best you can
When you present your home, it should be clean, it should be spacious, it should offer potential, and the buyer should be able to picture themselves living in the house. The best way to achieve these outcomes is to declutter the property.
Create space and minimise your presence around the home. If you need to invest in a short-term storage solution to better showcase your property, do so, as it would be an intelligent investment if you declutter your home correctly.
Enlist the services of an experienced local estate agent
Of course, quite often the fastest way to sell your home is to enlist the services of a skilled and experienced agent who knows the local market. At Wild & Co, we are pleased to say we have helped many Hackney vendors sell their home, and we look forward to assisting you, so contact us today.
