The Principles Haven’t Changed
Although you may find the idea of selling up rather daunting, it’s important to remember that the principles haven’t changed since the last time you moved home. You still need to market and present your home well, ensure it has an appropriate asking price, and get a good conveyancing solicitor and estate agent to work with you. If you visit our website at redwoodandsons.co.uk, you can find out more information about the rest of the selling process.
Cleaning Out Your Home
When you live in a house for any length of time, you accumulate a lot of items! It’s important to have your home tidy and clean when prospective purchasers come to view it. Therefore, it makes sense to start getting rid of any items you no longer want or need before listing your home for sale. Here at Redwood & Sons Estate Agents, we can give you helpful advice about how to best present your property for sale.
Dealing With Your Emotions
One element that may surprise you is how emotional your move may be. As you pack away your belongings and clear each room, you’ll find items with sentimental value and need to decide what to do with them. Whenever possible, ask relatives or friends to help you with this process, and schedule some time every day to complete this task so you can overcome your emotions and feelings by the time your moving day comes around.
I Haven’t Got A Property To Move To Yet – Should I Consider Selling?
You may believe you can’t start the selling process if you haven’t found another home to move to, however that isn’t the case at all. In fact, you could find it easier to secure another property once you’ve already sold your existing home, since sellers may not want to wait for your sale to go through. Should you make a rapid sale, you’ll still have several months before the transaction is complete during which time you can negotiate the terms under which you’re happy to leave your property. Keen buyers will almost always be prepared to wait.
