Four steps to selling your home

Four steps to selling your home

Selling a property can be very daunting, especially when getting started. Which is why here at Propflo we have laid out 4 steps to get you started in selling your property. There are many alternative routes when selling a property depending on the amount of time/money that you have available, this is just a guideline to help guide you through the process.
1. Valuation of your home
First things first you will need to gauge how much your property is worth – this will vary depending on the current state of the market. It is advised to get at least two valuations, potentially three to ensure that you are putting your house on the market for a fair and just price. One way to go about this is to reach out to a local estate agency to book in for a valuation. Propflo’s services page will match you with an estate agent and guide you through the process of getting a valuation.

2. Get your home looking show ready
The next stage in preparing to sell your property is to make sure your home is ‘show ready’. Having a spring clean and a declutter can in fact make your home look more spacious which will give off a more positive perception of the property. A fresh lick of paint and some DIY tweaks can make all the difference to potential buyers.
3. Finding the right person to sell your home
On average selling your property takes around 25 weeks from start to completion. This makes it very important to make sure you choose the right person to manage your sale. Choosing an estate agent with plenty of professional experience is crucial in ensuring they can advertise your property and highlight all of the benefits. It is a bonus if they know the local area as they can provide greater insight and expertise to potential buyers. As you will have continuous contact with the estate agent throughout the sale it is important you find someone who is a good fit for you and your home.
4. Get in contact with a conveyancer
Once you have accepted an offer, the seller will formally instruct a conveyancer to begin the conveyancing process to ensure a smooth sale. However, it is recommended to get in contact with a conveyancer before an offer has been accepted to speed up this process. They will then manage a lot of the documentation that is necessary as well as the legal side to the sale. If you need assistance in sourcing a conveyancer, Propflo’s services page will match you with a conveyancer and guide you through the process of sourcing your documentation.
