Here’s what you need to know before selling your home

There’s no denying that selling a home can be both a stressful and overwhelming process. Whether you’re downsizing, upgrading, or relocating, there are quite a few things that need to be considered before putting your property on the market. 

To help you prepare for this important step, here are a few things you need to know before selling your home:

 

The current housing market conditions

There are a number of factors that can affect the housing market, turning it into one that favours the buyer or the seller. Doing research into the current state of the market and what your home would sell for is essential when trying to sell. 

 

The value of your home

Before setting a selling price, you need to understand the value of your home. Whether you use an online tool or an estate agent, your home’s location, size, condition, and recent renovations will be used to determine its value. 

The costs involved with selling 

While selling your home brings in money, it also comes with costs. From estate agent commissions and stamp duty to home repairs and improvements, these costs that need to be carefully considered and planned for before selling your home. 

 

The condition of your home

Moving homes can be a stressful process, which is why most buyers want a home that is move-in ready. By making any necessary repairs, cleaning, and decluttering, you’ll make your home even more desirable to buyers. 

 

The legal and financial aspects of selling

When it comes to the legal side of selling a home, we recommend consulting a licensed conveyancer or solicitor. They’ll be able to help prepare any documents, negotiate offers and inform you of any tax implications.  

 

The timing of your sale
