And trust us, after numerous open-houses, listings, buyers, sellers and feedback - we know just what buyers are looking for!

So, if you’re getting ready to sell your home, here are some essential things to consider before selling your house!

Market research:

We recommend studying up in advance, what key areas are trending, what are buyers searching for and what are some of the current market trends?

You could do so by taking a look at property market reports, or check out our data hub to get in-depth insights on how different communities are priced and performing.

Property valuation:

Get a professional property appraisal or conduct a comparative market analysis to determine the fair market value of your property. Setting the right price is crucial for attracting potential buyers and maximising your returns. You could book yours with Allsopp & Allsopp.

Hire a real estate agent:

It's crucial to have a real estate agent, who’s specialising in your area to help you with your sale. Not only will they have the knowledge of the community, they'll also have a roster of buyers searching for homes in those communities.

Consider going exclusive:

Now that you’ve hired a realtor, we suggest going exclusive and here’s why!

Revamp and maintain your home:

Before listing, remember that a first impression lasts forever. So, to make that first impression last, and ensure your home doesn’t have any maintenance issues. Check out our guide to staging your home on a budget.

Here’s a few things to look out for when revamping your home:

  • Check your entrance and see if the door needs any fixtures
  • Redo some paintwork if needed
  • Check up on your garden. Make sure the grass is cut and consider adding some plants depending on the space
  • Ensure there are no leakages, or electrical issues.

Market your home!:

Align with your agent on how you’re going to be marketing your property. Did you know that with Allsopp & Allsopp, you’d have an in-house marketing agency working 360 to have your property be seen on every corner!
