Selling your Mitchells Plain property can be stressful, but if you’re well prepared it will prove to be a facile process. Here are a few tips to make your experience as stress-free as possible.
Try start with the preparations 3 months ahead of putting your property up for sale. In other words, if you’re contemplating putting your property on the market in March, start preparing for it from January.
Find a reputable estate agency in Mitchells Plain. View the local estate agency websites online to see if you like the way they advertise the various properties they have for sale in your area. This will also give you an idea of what the selling prices are for property listings in your area, so you’ll have a realistic figure in mind.
Go to the local show houses to see if you like the way the estate agents market the properties they’re selling. From there you can set up appointments with the estate agents to narrow down your search. You can also visit the real estate offices to meet with estate agents or call them and ask them to meet with you at your home.
Remember earlier in this article, I mentioned getting an idea of how much you could sell your property for? Well, if you get the estate agents to meet you at your home, you can ask them to do a valuation on your home and tell you what you think they could sell it for. Since they deal with property for sale in Mitchells Plain, this should be rather easy for them to do and it should be a free service. From there you’ll be able to tell if the estate agent is an honest one with good experience or not. If they give a figure that’s far too high or too low, you’ll know not to choose them.
Think about whether you’d prefer to have multiple estate agents working on the sale of your property of if you’d prefer a sole mandate. Each choice has its pros and cons, so it would be a good to do some research on this.
Get your home ready for viewing. Keep in mind that people looking for houses like neat and tidy homes that they could see themselves living in, so make sure it’s clean and smells nice and remove clutter. Try and make your home represent a blank canvas for potential buyers. Fix the little things, give it a fresh coat of paint inside and out – preferably a neutral colour, have the carpets and curtains cleaned, tidy up your garden and your home will look like new.
As you can see, a lot of preparation goes into putting up your Mitchells Plain property for sale, but if you plan well and give yourself three months to get everything done, you’ll thank yourself at the end of the day.
