WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU WANT TO SELL YOUR PROPERTY
Find an agent who suits your needs
To sell a property you must know how to advertise your property in the right way, you need to know a lot of people who could be possible buyers and you have to be tenacious and very patient. These are the reasons you need a good real estate agent, who will have the patience, the skills, the experience and the contacts you need for the selling of your property. The agent will be there for you, will find possible buyers and negotiate with them on your behalf.
Know the value of the property you want to sell
To evaluate your property, an inspection of the structures and the area is a must. Problems with the electrical, architectural and plumbing systems will influence the amount you can ask for the property. If you know of any such problems you have to ask a price accordingly and your experienced real estate agent is the person whom to ask for advice in this situation to avoid long and tedious negotiations with possible buyers.
The price you will be asking must be realistic
Thanks to his/her experience and knowledge, your real estate agent will advise you on the amount you could ask for your property. The amount is based on the property’s value, on its physical/structural state and on the current real estate market.
Show your property at its best
The external part of your property should be pleasant to look at, you should therefore clean it and, if there is a garden, the grass should be cut and should look as if the whole property is well taken care of. The interior should also be clean, devoid of clutter and without, if possible, many personal things such as photographs, monograms etc. Enough free space to move about and a pleasant smell in your property can give a good lasting impression to the possible buyers.
Leave the negotiations to your real estate agent
Your real estate agent has the experience, the knowledge of the rules, and the skills to negotiate on your behalf so that the property could be sold at the best price possible and in the shortest time possible. Experienced and qualified agents can cope with many different situations during negotiations that could often be tedious to the owner who wants to sell.
