Putting your home up on the market should be an exciting time as you move onto the next chapter of your life in a new location. But selling your home is easier said than done in most cases. It requires a lot of “back and forth”, and of course you will want to find the right buyer. Besides boxing up all of your belongings and checking you don’t leave anything behind, there are a number of important “boxes” that need ticked. Here are Qube Residentials top tips for getting your home ready for the Liverpool market.
Get the right price
Sometimes overpricing your home can delay the process and lead to you having to eventually reduce the price. It is advised to first get your home valued and ask your estate agent how they arrived at this price. It will soon become clear whether or not your home is receiving attention online due to the number of enquiries. But it’s also important to be patient as the housing market can go through busy and quiet periods!
Get ready to take photographs
When your home goes onto the market online, it’s important that you do your best to showcase it. This means decluttering and tidying rooms around your house. A top tip when photographing rooms is to open the blinds as darker rooms can tend to look smaller. In more domestic rooms such as the kitchen and bathroom, it can be beneficial to clean surfaces and glass doors as it can affect an image more than you think.
Have the correct documents
Between your estate agent and solicitor, you will be handing over quite a bit of paperwork throughout the process. It’s beneficial to start collecting these documents early to avoid rushing at the last minute. If you are unsure what documents you require, give our team at Qube Residential a call.
