So you have made the huge decision to move, you may have found your perfect next home and therefore, you want to sell your home quickly. No one wants or plans to have their home on the market for a long time, but if you act you can help sell your home quicker than you think. But what can you do to ensure a successful and fast sale?
Before you rush and invite estate agents through your door, is your home ready to be sold? You may have heard the term home staging, and even watched the TV programmes, but no matter your personal thoughts the facts are that home staging works, and not only can it help sell your home quicker it can often ensure it sells for a higher price than a home that hasn’t been presented for sale. There are 5 main stages to staging your home for sale:
- Repair and decorate
- Deep clean
- Rooms that have purpose and balance
- Finishing touches
There has never been so much choice when it comes to finding an agent to sell your home. Do your research, read reviews and ask friends and family for recommendations. Select three agents and invite them round to value your home, prepare a number of questions to ask each agent so you can compare their services, their knowledge of the local market and your gut feeling if they can sell your home. The right agent will make the sales process easier for you and your family.

Delays can often happen when as sellers you are not prepared. Having to hand documentation relevant to your property sale is essential such as any certificates, deeds and financial statements.
Selling your home quickly can often be down to your planning as much as the skill to market your home effectively by your chosen estate agent. Therefore, before you put your home on the market make sure you are ready to present, choose, listen and prepare, as doing so will mean you will have the keys to your new home quicker than you think.
