Useful Tips for sellers

  • Ensure the house is clean and well aired before viewings. They want to buy your house not your muck.

  • Go out during the viewing. Allow the agent to do the viewings. The prospective buyer can relax more, have a good poke around and get a better feel for the house if you’re not there.

  • Clean the windows and open up the blinds and curtains.

  • Don’t be unrealistic with sales price or you won’t get any viewings and the property won’t sell and will get a bad reputation. The only way to overcome this negative sentiment is a big price drop to re-invigorate the market.

  • De-clutter the house.

  • Make sure that the furniture and furnishings show how the house works in terms of lay out and space.

  • Set up a file and place all relevant documents warranties and the like in it - this will give the buyer and the surveyor confidence.
  • Have the boiler serviced and gas system checked.
