    1: Choose A Trusted Estate Agent For A Comparative Market Analysis

    Choosing an estate agent to market your property is the first step to selling. It is always a good idea to do some research and have a few agents come and view your property.

    3: Why Does Presentation And Home Improvement Matter When I Want To Sell My House?

    You might wonder if the presentation of your house can influence your home value. The answer to this is, yes. When acquiring your home value, the presentation of your house can attract or dissuade potential buyers. First impressions are key towards a successful property sale and have a significant impact on the types of offers you will receive. This will also influence whether or not buyers will respect your home value. 

    • When people view your home, try to incorporate as much natural sunlight as possible by opening up curtains and windows. This creates a sense of space and freshness.
    • Allocate some budget to minor fixes, such as painting the walls and completing any small repairs that may be necessary.
    • Neaten up your garden by cutting long grass and tidying up your flower beds. The front of your property is the first thing a potential buyer will see, and the positive first impression is a good way to start off a viewing.
    • Decluttering your house is one of the important things you should do to prepare your house for selling and to boost your home value.
