What You Should Know When Selling Your Property

Moving home can be one of the most stressful experiences of a person’s life, made even more stressful if you have to take care of the selling of your home, too.

Not only is there a massive amount of organization and paperwork involved, but leaving a space that has lots of sentimental and nostalgic value can be tough. That being said, if you are thinking of selling your property, whether it be a home or commercial space, there are a number of measures you can take to ensure that this transition goes as smoothly as possible. Here, the team at Property Properly Portlaoise will explain how.


Select a Quality Estate Agents’ Service/Auctioneers


One of the best things that you can do before selling your home is thoroughly researching estate agent services in your locality, and hiring the help of a reliable and trusted company. Real estate agents are experts when it comes to property services, offering quality advice, recommendations, and actionable plans to help make the selling of your property as hassle-free as possible. A quality estate agent service will take care of the nitty-gritty when it comes to selling your home or commercial space, looking after listings, viewings, property valuations, auctioneer services, and more so that you can focus on moving home without the stress of simultaneously trying to sell your property alone. A high-quality real estate agent will also help you to check the planning situation regarding any extensions or developments, and check maps for any boundary issues.


Organise Your Documents


One of the most time-consuming aspects of selling a property can be organising and filing all the relevant documents needed before the sale. Before you sell your home, you should try to find and organise all of the relevant paperwork needed so that a sale can go through as effortlessly as possible when the time comes. The easiest way of getting this paperwork together is by hiring a solicitor to help. The paperwork you should organise includes the deeds of the home from the lending institution, mortgage information, utility bills, tax bills, council agreements, tax information, and more. These organisations should also be contacted to notify them of your selling of the property. If you’re unsure of how to go about finding and organising this paperwork, a real estate agent can help. 


Make the Home Presentable


No matter how structurally sound your property may be, buyers need to imagine what they would look and feel like in the home, which is why it’s important to make your property look immaculately clean, tidy, and presentable before viewings. Potential buyers are more drawn to empty, bright spaces so it is recommended to clear out the property fully and hire a professional cleaning company to ensure that the space is gleaming before viewings begin. As well as this, make sure to repair and replace any small faults in the house such as broken door handles, cracked tiles, and scuffed floors. Despite being small faults, these can really affect the impression of the property.
