Tips when selling

Increase the chances of a sale

You never get a second chance to make a first impression. This applies to home buyers too. Buyers form an opinion within seconds of looking at your home, so give the buyer as many reasons as possible to fall in love with your home.

By applying a few proven tips you can greatly enhance your chances of a sale. We list a few of these points so you have the best chance to make the buyer???s first impression a lasting one..

Enhance your home???s appearance

It???s time to make your home appealing enough to interest potential buyers. Think of these enhancements as a relatively minimal financial investment with a quick and high return. These include cleaning the pool, tidying the garden, filling the cracks and doing the outstanding DIY work. Painting your home may seem like an unnecessary expense but it can transform the look and feel and definitely add to the value of your home. Try to choose light, neutral colours.

Declutter your home

Not all buyers will visit your home on a Sunday, so keep your home clean and tidy over the selling period. Eliminate clutter ???? the buyer must be able to picture their furniture in ????their??? new home. You may want to contemplate storage for furniture that does not neatly fit in your home.

Take and list good photos

Buyers are going to judge your home on your descriptions and photos listed on Sellaproperty. Ensure the photos you take are good quality and reflect your home in the best possible way. Make sure that you list all the features, as well as capture these in your photos. The more good points a potential buyers sees, the easier it is for the buyer to make a decision.

Advertise in your neighbourhood

If the people in your immediate vicinity are aware that you are selling your home, they may know of a family member, friend or colleague who wants to buy in the area. To inform your neighbours of your intention to sell, you can distribute pamphlets to them via your local post office. For best results, consider the ????5 x 5??? principle, sending pamphlets to people up to five streets away from your home in all directions to inform them that your home is for sale.

For your convenience, we have designed a ???For Sale??? and ???To Let??? pamphlet. Click below to load your details into the relevant pamphlet, view the result, then print, cut and distribute for a super A5-size advertisement. For best results, print with a colour printer onto A4-size paper.

Accept a "reasonable" offer

Generally your best offer should present itself in the first ten to fourteen weeks of listing. Don???t risk a lost opportunity ???? our Market-Related Price Guarantee will enable you to judge whether a buyer???s offer is acceptable.
