When it comes to putting your property on the market, a lot of people will decide to do so around Easter. Once you actually decide to put your house on the market, you can call the estate agent who will come and put a board in your garden within a couple of days. It is much harder to sell a house these days because the housing market is still depressed. But when the estate agent informs the seller that their property probably won’t fetch as much as back in 2007, they can still be quite shocked at the news.
There are some properties however, which are selling, if not quite as fast as previously, but certainly, within two or three weeks. If this happens and a property on your street sells really quickly while yours is still on the market, it is understandable for you to be wondering why this is the case.
Before the board even goes in your garden, it is important that you make sure you have your home ready for potential buyers; ask the estate agent whether or not there is anything that you can do to improve the appearance of the home. It is a good idea to de-clutter every room in the home before you put it up for sale. If you have a lot of items and nowhere to put them while you are doing viewings then you could always get in touch with a rental firm to hire a secure container.
Do not let the estate agent take photos of your home for marketing purposes until after you have made any improvements. You need the agent to know that you don’t want to show the property to anyone who can’t proceed with the purchase of course assuming that they like the house. If you don’t do this then you could find that the buyer is waiting for their own house to be sold and you are left in limbo until this is done.
If you and the estate agent work together there is a much better opportunity to sell your home quickly.
Heating up the home during the cold months of winter may cost a good packet. Electricity and gas price ranges are extremely high and show no signs of decreasing in the near future. Smart folk are changing over to oil as a home fuel though. Most inexpensive warming up oil are the persons tasked with keeping home oil tanks filled. Oil suppliers tend to be common all through the Uk, and will supply heating oil countrywide through sites like Boiler Juice.
