How Do I Sell My Home?

How Do I Sell My Home?

By Dominic Hefferan on Apr 16 2018

So you’ve decided to take the plunge and sell your property. It’s never easy to say goodbye to your home, but of course it’s necessary from time to time, whether because of a new job, you’ve outgrown your space, or you just need a change. But now that you’re committed to selling, where do you go from there?

What Do I Want?

Often the question “How much can I get for my property?” should really be “What can I do to get the best price?” You need to consider how you’ll market your house, whether you want to sell at auction or not, and who you think is most likely to buy your home.

You may consider selling by yourself, but unless you have clear answers to all these questions, and a solid understand of your legal requirements before, during, and after a sale, it’s best to consult a professional.

Can I Compromise?

In a perfect world, we’d all know exactly what every property’s worth, and could see the future to know how the market will move. Of course, this isn’t the case, so you’ll need to be willing compromise on price, especially if you get a serious offer that’s lower than you want. Before anything else, you need to set a minimum price you’re comfortable selling for. This way, you can advertise above this price, but still be ready for whatever happens.

Where Will I Go?

Sometimes, when you’re so wrapped up in the process of selling your home, it’s hard to see an end in sight. Still, it’s important to not lose focus and to plan for your future. While you’re still in a property frame of mind, take the time to look at where you’ll want to live once your home is sold. This way you can avoid having to make alternative arrangements once the sale’s finalised.

Selling your property is a combination of strong emotions and hard financial decisions. However, by choosing LJ Hooker Sunnybank Hills, you know you’ve made the first step towards getting the best result.
