3 Ways To Get The Highest Price For Your Home

Gold Round Coins

Do you want to know how to get the best price for your home? Don’t try selling it on your own. Using a company that purchases homes is often the best scenario, the most cost-effective, and the quickest way to sell your home. And you won’t have to pay any fees or deal with the stresses and hassles of showing your home to hundreds of people. What can you do to help your home attain the highest price?

  1. Improve the aesthetics of the outside of your home. This is also known as ‘kerb appeal.’ You want your home to make a good impression and show that its value ranks right up there with the best homes. Concentrating on landscaping can be very helpful. Ensure your lawn, flowers, bushes, and trees are healthy and can be seen easily from the street.
  2. Clean your home. A well-kept and decluttered home can go a long way toward influencing a chartered valuation surveyor and, therefore, the next new homeowner. When your home looks as aesthetically pleasing as its structure and foundation are secure, it can bring up the value of your home.
  3. Use neutral colours when you paint. If you choose to repaint interior walls before selling your home, try to choose neutral colours that will blend better and have a wider appeal for new homeowners trying to match their furniture and decorative items.

Asking Price

How much can you get off a house’s asking price? At times, you may be able to look at valuations of similar properties in similar neighbourhoods or regions of the area. Prices can vary due to such things are differences in sizes of the homes, amenities in the home, condition of the home, and other variables.

When Prices Are Too High

What happens when home prices get too high? If the asking price of your home is too high, it will normally receive far fewer showings in its initial 30 days of being listed. Many homebuyers start their new home search online and overpriced homes will get overlooked. If your listing is more than 30 days old (or goodness forbid – more than 60 days old), buyers will assume something is wrong with the house because it hasn’t moved in that timeframe. Your home will take longer to sell if the price is too high if it sells at all, and you will have to drop the price if you want it to sell.

How To Get The Best Price For Your Home

The answer to how to get the best price when selling your home would have to be to sell it to a company. They will get an honest valuation for your home and the process is designed to happen fast, often concluding in 3-4 weeks.

What About Auctioning A Home?

Can auctioning my house get a fair price? While buyers can often purchase homes at auction for below market value, risks also come along with buying at auction. One of the downfalls to purchasing a home at auction is that you must have cash readily available to purchase at the time you win a bid. This can often limit financing options. Also, the high-pressure environment involved in potential bidding wars can overinflate prices with the desire to win over another bidder. Another issue is often the limited knowledge of a property due to a lack of due diligence in this environment. Property defects, structural integrity, planning restrictions, and potentially high fees may only be discovered after the bidding process.

When in doubt, always use a trusted company that purchases properties and knows the ins and outs of buying a UK property.
