Help in Accurately Pricing the Property
When you feel the time is right to sell your property, setting the right value for it might be trickier than you think. Property value is influenced by many factors that you might not even consider. This is where an experienced real estate agent Stratford can make all the difference.
Getting an accurate appraisal for your property is one of the most important aspects to take into consideration when deciding to sell, as it sets the starting point for finding buyers but also for finding ways to improve and increase the property price you can ask for.
Some owners tend to value their property too high or too low, based on their own research and experience. The downside to this is that, in doing so, they may potentially be lengthening the time their property stays on the market or selling at a regrettably low price.
Stratford estate agents are proficient in accurately pricing properties and seeing potential value within the current market. They are always up to date with local market trends, potential buyer interests, and are skilled in determining the true value of your property.
Working with an estate agent will help you set a competitive price and ensure your property stands out since the price is the first thing a potential buyer will be interested in. This, in turn, will attract more offers and drive your property’s price up as buyers will be competing for it.
Making Suggestions for Increasing the Property’s Value
Making your property stand out and above the competition when trying to sell will definitely pose a challenge since market trends are not always dependent on price, but also on current or projected value.
Having a Stratford real estate agent by your side will ensure you are up to date with what potential buyers are looking for when searching for a property. Even the smallest details can put your property above the cut and make it irresistible.
Estate agents will help you add value by recommending ways to improve certain aspects of your property before revealing it to potential buyers, ensuring that you will have the best starting point.
Here are just a few examples:
- Spruce up the place – minor touch-ups here and there, like a DIY paint job, or decluttering can keep costs down and have a big impact on the appeal of your home.
- Fix small problems – squeaky doors, loose hinges, dripping taps, these might be small details that you may have become used to and might overlook, but potential buyers might be put off by them. Fixing such issues can really make a difference and buyers will definitely appreciate it.
- Fundamental issues – broken pipes, cracked walls, or damaged floors might be a pain and expensive to fix, but are fundamental to adding true value to your property.
Recommendations on Improving Curb Appeal
You probably heard this many times, but first impressions are lasting impressions. So, curb appeal does matter.
Imagine yourself going to see a property and pulling up to a home that has an untrimmed lawn, overgrown bushes, and looking in overall disrepair. Not a good image, right?
Now imagine seeing the opposite. A clean, well-cared-for home that looks bright and welcoming. That image alone can add value to your property and help you get a better price.
A Stratford real estate agent can help you improve your home’s curb appeal by recommending simple improvements you can make to the outside spaces of your property. A well-designed garden, a trimmed and well-kept lawn, or even a fresh coat of paint on your front door can significantly increase the sale value of your property.
Stratford real estate agents have the skills and knowledge needed to make your property pop and stand out in the eyes of potential buyers.
Marketing Done Right
You’re ready to sell your property, but how do you go about doing it? You can do your own research, sure. But you might be missing out on some great opportunities.
Estate agents know how to maximize exposure and how to get to the right buyers. In the current market, it’s not enough to simply post your property on a website. Generating interest throughout the market has a great impact on the sale value of your property.
Stratford estate agents are well connected to the right networks and can access more online and online platforms. They also create dedicated marketing materials and can show your property to the right buyers.
Knowing where and how to market your property is very important. Stratford estate agents have the best and most innovative tools to market your property effectively. This is key for adding value to your property and getting the best offers.
Negotiating With Potential Buyers
You received some offers for your property and reached the point of talking to possible buyers about closing the deal. Up to this point, Stratford real estate agents helped you improve, present, and market your property.
At this stage, they use their negotiating skills to agree with potential buyers on selling your property at the best price. Estate agents are great communicators and are skilled in presenting the current and future value of your property to potential buyers, driving the property price up.
Estate agents will also do background checks on potential buyers and help move things along so that your property doesn’t stay on the market longer than it should. They will be motivated by their desire to obtain the best outcome for you but also for themselves, as the value of their commission depends on the price they secure for your property.
Having a Stratford real estate agent by your side throughout the selling process will ensure the best outcome. If you want to sell your Stratford property, do not hesitate to contact our experienced agents at 0207 055 0441.
