When you sell a house or other types of investment properties, you want to find ways to speed up the process and ensure you aren’t left with the property sitting on the market for a long time. There are several things you can do to maximise your chances of getting a quick sale.
Choosing the right estate agent is the best idea and you should always go for a specialist who will market your home in several different channels including online, in print media and in their office. It is also a good idea to look at some of the materials they prepare for properties to get an idea of how they will present yours. At Finefair, we have many years of experience selling properties in Tower Hamlets and all other areas of London and will take advantage of every possible avenue to ensure your property sells as quickly as possible.
One of the most important things to remember is to get the most you can out of every single viewing. Once you find a prospective buyer who shows some interest in the property, it is your job to solidify the interest and encourage them to enter negotiations. Viewings should be organised at the most suitable times for buyers, ensuring you are available whenever they need you. We can help you with this by handling all viewings, ensuring that you never have to miss out on an opportunity for a sale.
If you struggle to attract viewings, you can arrange an open day and invite people to view the property without arranging in advance. Open days can encourage people who wouldn’t otherwise do so stop in and view the building. In many cases it can boost the number of people that have a look around as they see how popular the house is.
When you receive an offer you are faced with the option of whether to take the property off the market or continue to allow viewings. This is a delicate decision and depends on how much confidence you have in the buyer. In some cases if you change the sign to under offer rather than sold you can encourage other interested parties to put in competing offers. If the sale falls through you can be faced with additional costs if you need to put the property back on the market.
During the sale process, it is important to remember you can always call on our agents to discuss the situation and alter your strategy. If you are struggling to get viewings you may need to think about how the property is presented, how you can improve it and whether the asking price is realistic. We can advise you on all these matters to do with your investment properties.
