Selling your home can be a stressful and long process. See our top tips for how to sell you home (and what not to do!) to make the process easier and help find a buyer quickly – as well as how to arrange a PCC certificate to make sure that your buyer can get a mortgage without any hassle!
Top Tips When Selling Your Home
#1 Use Simple Interior Design Tricks
A few simple tweaks can make a huge difference! Buyers will be relying heavily on images and viewings and sometimes it may be hard to picture themselves in your home whilst your own belongings are in there. Try and make your home as natural as possible, so that it’s a blank canvas for viewers.
#2 Do Market Research
Do you know the value of similar properties on the market? House prices can vary depending on factors including property area and features – does your home have a swimming pool? An indoor fireplace? Modern features? Look at similar properties to make sure that you’re not pricing yourself out of the market or missing out on the full asking potential.
#3 Arrange A PC Certificate
If you have built or converted a property, you want to sell the property and your purchaser needs a mortgage then you must ensure that it was built or converted under a building standards indemnity scheme acceptable to mortgage lenders. Mortgage Lenders will generally only lend on a newly built or newly converted property where the property is covered by a scheme such as the Professional Consultants Certificate.
#4 Get Professional Photos Taken
Professional photos can make a huge difference when selling your home. It’s important to have high quality photographs that showcase the best of your property so that buyers can see its full potential. If your home is listed on a property site then images will be the main thing that captures the attention of buyers – so make sure your home stands out!
