Get Your Home Sold This Summer With These Top Tips Are you trying to sell your home? Perhaps you have been on the market for a while and are beginning to feel frustrated at the lack of offers? Or maybe you had a timescale that you had hoped to be sold by, and that is hurtling towards you without a sale in sight? Follow these tips to sell your home this summer.

It can be disheartening to not sell straight away. As frustration rises, it is natural to consider throwing in the towel and giving up, removing the property from the market and deciding reluctantly to stay where you are. But what if there was a way to give things a little boost so that you can sell your home and move to the property you've been dreaming of?

Whether you are already on the market and haven't found that buyer yet, or you had a sale but it fell through, you probably need a refresh to boost your marketing to get a sale before the end of the summer.

These tips should help you find success:

  1. Gather information: First, you need to take a look at the marketing and interest that you have had - has there been any constructive feedback? Have you had any offers yet? Have other properties similar to yours already sold?

  2. Analysis: carefully consider the information that you have gathered. How many viewings have you had? How does your property listing compare to other properties that have sold?

  3. Be reasonable: Of course, we all want our home to be worth a lot of money, but if you have had low viewing numbers and/or low offers, it may be time to consider a price reduction. 

  4. Refresh: Is the marketing of your property showcasing things in the best way possible? Maybe it is time to consider re-taking the photographs or rewriting the description to encourage more viewers.

  5. Implementation: Come up with a plan to refresh and renew your marketing and implement it as if it was a new launch to the market to try a recreate that buzz that you had when you initially marketed the property.

Your agents can advise you on this process, and of course, they will also relaunch the property through their internal systems to match it up to buyers on their database. The idea is that if it is all starting to feel a bit stale and same-y, reinvigorate the marketing and spice things up a bit. 

Make the most of the summer weather with new sunny photographs, and perhaps consider staging some areas of the property for the images. And, if the price is a little high compared to other properties that have already sold, maybe an adjustment will help you achieve a sale.

Inactivity is the worst thing you can do when a property is not selling. Doing nothing will certainly not encourage a sale and will result in…well, nothing. Be proactive and change things up, and you will be negotiating offers in no time.
