Selling your home is a huge undertaking. As property experts, here at The Big Estate Agency we know all too well the common mistakes you may make that can reduce the value of your home. But luckily we also know how to remedy them.
❗️Setting the price unrealistically
If you set your price unrealistically high, it could sit on the market for months without selling. You may inevitably end up slashing the price to meet expectations, which may make potential buyers question why the price has been reduced so much. It’s a position you don’t really want to put yourself in, so getting a realistic valuation from the start is important.
At The Big Estate Agency, our experienced valuers will always provide you with an honest market appraisal to ensure your property attracts interest.
❗️Not deep cleaning your home before viewings
Nobody wants to view a home that is dirty. Major issues like carpet stains and grubby or mouldy tile grout can leave a poor impression on potential buyers when they view your home.
When it comes to cleaning, being proactive is the best course of action. Make sure you regularly clean your home and deal with any spills before they set, which makes them much more difficult to remove later on.
❗️Not properly maintaining your home
Taking care of the mechanics of your home is important, especially when it comes to your plumbing and heating. Potential buyers are likely to ask questions about the state of the plumbing and heating and will be less likely to want to offer on a home that has a history of high utility bills or will need major repairs in the near future.
❗️Not updating decor
Old, outdated design trends will make your home look dated, which can lower the value of your home.
Before putting your home on the market try and make it look as neutral as possible so it can appeal to a wider number of people. Painting the walls and stripping wallpaper is a good start!
