TO MAKE A BUYER FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR HOME
You know your home looks good. You’ve chosen your estate agent, the photographer’s booked and you’re ready to launch.

Switching estate agents
all you need to know to get it right
If you are considering switching estate agents, take a look at our latest guide – Switching estate agents: all you need to know to get it right.
When you chose your estate agent, you did so because you believed they could sell your home.
You felt so certain, you even put your name to it when you signed the contract.
However, months down the line, hopes of lots of viewers and competing offers from eager buyers, are starting to fade.
You find yourself wondering if the market has changed, or if your asking price was just too optimistic. Your estate agent seems to have lost confidence in their ability to sell your house for the price they recommended. “Would a new agent do a better job?” you ask yourself.
Your Property’s Asking Price
If you have had your house on the market for some time without success, dropping your asking price may seem an inevitable, if unwanted, next step. Your estate agent will often suggest this move if they have run out of ideas, motivation and most importantly, confidence in your asking price.
But is dropping your asking price really the answer to selling your home more effectively?
Preparing to sell your home
GETTING READY TO MOVE
With the property market now able to re-open, now is the time to get ready to make sure you’re prepared for selling your home, and moving on.
Over the past few weeks, house viewings have not been possible. But don’t worry – your estate agent will have been taking registrations of interest from people wanting to view your home, and should have a list of buyers ready to book an appointment as soon as they are able to.
So let’s make sure your home is viewing-ready!
