When it comes to selling your house, there are 3 distinct phases to consider- as long as you take a bit of time to understand the process and steps involved, it doesn't need to be a stressful experience.
Before your house officially goes on the market, you should get an accurate evaluation of how much it is worth. Following that, you will need to identify a suitable real estate agent and - this is recommended but not mandatory just yet - settle on a solicitor as soon as possible. Instructing your conveyancing lawyer early on can save a lot of time down the line.
First impressions last, so putting that little bit of extra effort into the way your house is presented will pay off in the long term. Added to that, you need to make sure that the house is marketed well, so the right people know it is out there. Finally, when people view your house, it is a good idea to ensure that they are accompanied by someone who can highlight its positives as much as possible - experience really helps in that area.
Once you have received an offer and it has been agreed, it is onto the exchange of contracts. Again, here you want to be working with someone who is experienced and competent to guide you through the process. Once all the details have been ironed out, all the necessary boxes ticked, the money transferred and the deal officially completed, it will be time to hand over the keys and a bid a fond farewell to your old home.
