- Consider different sales channels
- Arrange an open day for your property
- Sell the local area
- Hire a better estate agent
These tips can provide you with an opportunity to attract buyers and eventually sell your home.
Ensure your house has been properly valued
It is vital that your home is priced accordingly. If you are not receiving any interest, it may be buyers perceive your home as overpriced for what it offers. Therefore, you should call on the services of an expert to properly value your home.
Once you are armed with an accurate valuation, you should alter the price accordingly. If people ask about the change in price, provide the information that the valuation offered as justification for the new price. Some people may have questions or suspicions about the change in price, but if you weren’t receiving any interest before, making a change won’t make the situation any worse.
Consider different sales or promotion channels
The lack of interest in your home could be down to promoting the property in the wrong places. It is vital that you know who the most likely buyers are and where to reach them. If you need assistance in determining who is most likely to buy your home, call on us and we will be happy to review your property.
This will help you reach out to likely buyers in a more effective and productive manner.
Arrange an open day for your property
If you are struggling to generate one-on-one interest in your home, why not arrange an open day? If you promote your open day on social media as well as using traditional house marketing channels, you will generate interest. People love open days.
It is likely that you will welcome many time-wasters and people with no interest in your home, but you may also encourage interested buyers to finally take an interest in your home. If you do, this move has been more than justified.
Sell the local area
You aren’t just selling your home, you are also selling the local area. Are you doing enough to sell your local area? Make sure you detail the reasons why people should love your local area and what benefits it offers. This information may make all the difference in persuading people to consider your home.
Hire a better estate agent
Lastly, it may be the reason you aren’t attracting interest at your home is that your current estate agent isn’t doing a good enough job. Hiring a better agent, one with local experience and knowledge, can help you sell your home.
If you follow these steps, we are sure that you will generate more interest in your home. If you need further guidance in selling your home, or you would like to hire a better estate agent in Petersfield, contact Williams of Petersfield and we will be delighted to help you.
