Moving home is a complicated process, and so getting it right is crucial. Whether you are a first-time buyer, or an experienced home owner, here are our top five tips to help you sell and move in as quickly as possible:
1. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail
Preparation is pivotal to selling your property. Make sure your photos are done, have all your paperwork in order and be prepared to accept viewings.
2. Make sure the price is right
This may seem obvious, but ensuring your property is priced correctly and competitively will save you time in the long run. Your agent will give you the best advice based on the market and current demand.
3. Perfect presentation
To ensure your property is presented properly: make sure your home is well lit, de-cluttered and sparkling clean.
4. Choose a mortgage provider
A mortgage provider can talk you through the steps of getting a loan and calculating how much you can afford for your property. Your estate agent can put you in touch with the right mortgage provider, or you can do the research yourself to find the best for you.
5. Find the right solicitor
The more efficient your solicitor is, the quicker the process will be. Make sure you provide all the necessary identification and initial paperwork so that your solicitor can prepare in advance. You could save yourself a lot of time and energy.
