Now that photographs have been taken and brochure text is confirmed, your marketing campaign has launched and you’ll begin to see your home across newspapers and property sales sites.
You’ve been here before: scrambling to schedule appointments for a half hour visit to your dream home, a rushed Saturday morning trying to cram in as many viewings as you can, calling agency after agency to ask about the rear garden. As a purchaser in a previous life, you know visiting a property is key to deciding whether or not to place an offer. Now that you’re the seller, the open viewing takes on a different perspective. We’ve asked Lisney Residential Divisional Director and Terenure Branch Manager, Michelle Kealy how to make the most of your home’s open viewing.
Once your questions have been answered by a knowledgeable negotiator, you’ll be ready to make your next move. But before you begin boxing up your home, you’ll need to find a buyer. In 2018, this means working alongside your agent to create a dynamic marketing campaign across newspapers and the internet, showcasing your home to as many potential buyers as possible. Don’t know where to begin? With the help of Lisney Residential Director John O’Sullivan, we’ll walk you through this important next step in selling your home.
This is the season for resolutions and if selling your home is somewhere on the list between cleaning out the junk drawer and joining spin class, you’ll have been doing some serious thinking about making that big move. Any estate agent will tell you that the first quarter of the year is the best time to put your house up for sale. After the holiday break, a surplus of supply along with pent-up demand from buyers means that homes that go to market in the early months of the year tend to sell quicker and at a higher price point.
But before you’re ready to put up the ‘For Sale’ sign, you might have a few questions: how much is my home worth? Do I need to do extensive renovations in order for my house to sell? What kind of budget will I need to advertise my home? And perhaps most importantly, where do I begin?
We’ve asked Louise Kenny, Residential Divisional Director in Lisney’s Leeson Street office, to walk us through the jumping off point in selling your home: the market appraisal.
