Tips for a speedy move

Now that we're well into 2019, you may be considering putting your home on the market.

Selling a house isn’t always a quick process and we understand that in today’s fast-paced culture it can sometimes be frustrating.

Unfortunately there isn’t a definitive formula for selling your home quickly, however we’ve put together some tips that can help increase interest in your property, ultimately speeding up the process.

  • Invest in a professional photography package. Although our estate agents are pretty nifty with a camera, professional photographers have the equipment to make sure your property really stands out from the crowd online. If your property is displayed in its best light, this will encourage more potential buyers to click on your home on our website and portals such as Rightmove and Zoopla. More clicks means a greater chance of securing viewings.
  • Consider home staging. Want to make a really good impression? Look into home staging to help interested buyers visualise your property’s potential – this is a particularly useful tip for empty properties. Speak to our team to find out more.
  • Prepare in advance for photography and viewings. It may sound obvious, but making sure your home is tidy and well-presented before your estate agent takes photos and before potential buyers knock on the door can make or break your chances of a sale. If you’re considering selling your home, it’s never too early to start decluttering – you’ll thank yourself when it comes to moving!

At Emsleys Estate Agents, we’re committed to making your move as easy as possible. That’s why we’re offering free professional photography if you choose to sell your home with us until the end of February 2019.
