After discussing the weather, we in Britain love nothing more than to discuss property prices. Are they up, are they down, and is it all controlled by a mysterious force beyond our comprehension. Whilst the impact of outside influences such as Brexit undoubtedly influences national property prices, your local area is a unique environment, and it is the prices within your local area that are the most relevant when you consider the value of your home.
Before placing your home on the market, considerations should be made to:
Recent sales of similar properties in your area; whilst a national average can be interesting, it is your immediate locality that will have the greatest influence on a resulting sale price for your property so being familiar with local pricing will assist in pitching your property just right for buyers.
Your needs; whilst for some getting the greatest value from their property is key, for others you may wish to prioritise the speed of a sale. These needs are individual to you as a seller and are important to share with your estate agent when placing your property into the market.
USPs; understanding what’s unique to your home, and what will make it desirable can aid in how you approach potential buyers. Taking into consideration local amenities, local transport links, local school OFSTED ratings and elements unique to your home such as parking spaces, garden size, recent decoration and development potential, can all have an impact on its appeal to your local market and the value you place on your home.
Whilst todays property market offers you many ways in which to sell your property, we would recommend that you do take valuation advice from an estate agency with extensive experience in your local area.
