3 mistakes people make when selling their home…

it doesn’t matter if you’re selling your home or not, we are willing to help you get these principles right.


 Admit it, when you’ve brought your house to market you’ve totally compared it to your neighbours asking price right? Don’t!!! Rule number 1 when selling your property is not to make too many assumptions, especially on price. The price is made up of many factors, not just what you see on the outside. You could be setting a much higher price if you just stop over analyzing your property. 



When your property is on the market and you're showing people around your home, you need to make sure you’re presenting it in a way that’s best for buyers. I know it’s hard to throw your own opinions out the window, but for those short few hours toss everything aside and think about your possible buyers. If you need to, it may even be beneficial to hire someone to stage your home, this can even increase the price in the long run and who doesn’t want that?


How do you market a house, Rightmove right? Wrong. Most agents will use reactive marketing which is essentially just waiting for the phone to ring and reacting accordingly. If you’re selling your home, what you want is proactive marketing. Creating a bespoke marketing strategy for each property is the way to go. It allows you to directly channel into the correct demographic, using social media, leaflets and advertisements alongside the normal property portals gives you the absolute best exposure making it more likely to sell your property.
