Top Tips For Sellers


1. Make sure your property is perfectly presented


Is your property presented in the best possible way- would some quick fixes showcase it at its best? Think about doing a new lick of paint, or buying a cover for a tired looking couch, simple changes could add value and interest to your property.


2. Choose an agent that advertises on Rightmove


To reach the biggest property audience in the UK make sure your agent advertises your property on Rightmove. With the majority of home-movers turning to Rightmove first, you will be getting your property in front of the most engaged buyers, who send more email and phone enquiries than through any other portal.


3. Pull together the ultimate listing


Help your agent pull together the ultimate listing. Speak with them about why you fell in love with the property so they can incorporate this insight into your property descriptions. Remember you know the property the best so share quirky and compelling features that will help your property stand out. In addition when the agent comes to take photos give the house a good clean and de-clutter. Photos are key to your listings so make sure they capture the place at its best.

4. January is a great time to sell!


The start of the year is a traditionally busy time in the housing market, and during January Harrisons Estate Agents saw unprecedented levels of website traffic. If you’re thinking about selling in the near future talk with your agent about getting your property on the market before the end of the year to take advantage of the January surge.

6. Clear up and out for viewings

First impressions count – when potential buyers walk into your property don’t let a dirty kitchen or messy bathroom put them off. Give your property a thorough clean from top to bottom. Think about whether taking pets out for the day might also help, also try to remove any pet odors!
