One of our valuers or directors will visit your property and offer you advice on how to achieve the best possible price in the current market.
There are several aspects to consider:
Presentation of property – If we feel that by changing something in your property it would be more saleable, then we will advise you of this. If we can work together to make your property more appealing to more buyers, then we would be much more likely to achieve you the best possible price.
Comparable properties – When our valuer visits your property, he will be able to present you with similar properties to your own which have sold, or failed to sell. This will very often give you a good indication of the best possible price that is achievable. This is very important – ask too much for your property and it could take a very long time to sell, ask too little and you are giving money away!! Using comparable evidence we can give you an indication of the most suitable asking price to achieve the maximum price.
Marketing your property – To achieve the best price possible we need to make your property available to as wider audience as possible, and provide them with as much information as possible to attract them to view. Therefore your property will be advised on many websites, including www.rightmove.co.uk, which attracts millions of visitors a year. In addition, we will produce sales particulars for your property which include quality digital photography, full room descriptions, room dimensions, 2D floor plans, 3D floor plans, maps and EPC’s.
Availability for viewings – When the right buyer comes along, you and your property need to be ready! Accommodating viewings can often be a stressful and inconvenient aspect of selling, however it is possibly the most important part!! If you feel that you are unable to be available at peak viewing times (often evenings and weekends) then please provide us with a key and we will be more than happy to show the customers round on your behalf, 7 days a week. In fact, many sellers choose to let Starkey & Brown carry out all their viewings. Making your property as ‘available’ as possible will give you more chance of achieving a viewing, and therefore more likely to receive an offer, and therefore more likely to achieve the best price!
For advice on any of the above, or indeed on any aspect of selling your property, call us today on 01522 845 845 and we can arrange for you to speak to one of our valuer’s, either face-to-face, or over the telephone.
