When it comes to selling your home, negotiating the right price is a task that can require experience, expertise and precision. Following some of these simple tips may help you get the maximum selling price.
Choose your agent carefully: Not all agents are the same. They offer different reach and coverage, in different ways, with different people.
Give yourself realistic time frames: Typically, the most interest from buyers comes in the first month of being on the market. If you haven’t had an offer, listen to your agent to work out if you need to drop the price
Consider your tactics: The first offer might not be the best one. Always ask for an increased offer and wait.
Spruce things up: Small things can make a big difference, such as a lick of paint to freshen the front door, tiding the garden or outing a throw over an old sofa. A few finishing touches shouldn’t be too costly.
Don’t get emotionally involved: Once you decide to sell your home, it can be helpful to start thinking of yourself as a businessperson and a home seller rather than as the home’s owner.
