A Guide to Selling Your Home

August 1, 2020 5:58 am


Selling your home can seem a daunting and complicated task. Here are some tips to make the process a little more straightforward:

Hiring estate agents

Hiring an estate agent takes the hassle out of advertising your own house. They will do this for you, listing a property for sale, advertising on your behalf and arranging any viewings. You’ll also want to hire a conveyancer. For Conveyancing Gloucester, visit a site like Dee & Griffin, a leading Conveyancing Gloucester firm.

Get a valuation and agree on a price

Agents will come and see you and offer a property valuation. A valuation is used to decide on a price to put it on the market for. Another helpful resource is the site of the Land Registry which will give an indication of what recent home sales were in your area.

Energy Performance Certificate

An EPC is a legal requirement and you should have one in place before putting your home on the market. A registered energy assessor would need to resolve this for you.

Get your home out there

If the interest is slow or you want to expand the scope of potential interest, you might want to put your home on the internet. You can advertise through estate agents and use sites such as Zoopla or Rightmove. They usually charge a small fee, but your property will potentially be seen by more people.

Preparing Your Home

Some adjustments may need to be done to get your home ready for viewings. This is the point at which you should start to see your property as a commodity that will soon belong to someone else and try to detach yourself emotionally.
