Why Selling Your Home Should Be a Team Effort

Why Selling Your Home Should Be a Team Effort

Selling a home is not a solo project – well, not if you hope to achieve top selling price. A three-minute read and a short video.

If there’s one piece of property advice worth remembering, it’s this: be wary of anyone who tells you that selling a home is so easy that you should do it yourself. 

Many things in life are easy, like singing Baa Baa Black Sheep out of key or eating a whole packet of chocolate biscuits/family-sized crisps in one afternoon. 

But what’s not a doddle is achieving top asking price for a property (and if you’re going to the effort of selling your home, that’s what you want, right?). 

It takes a team with expertise and experience across a range of areas to nail a great sale.  

Not even the most ingenious multi-tasker has the skills to cover all the bases themselves. 

Here’s a list of who should be on your home-selling team. 

Estate agent – a good agent will be an expert on the local area and get the asking price just right. They should be a pro at viewings and negotiations and have a savvy social media strategy to generate interest in your property. 

Photographer – All top agents use a professional photographer for marketing photos. Most viewers start their property search online and expect to see high-quality images (not shadowy snaps that make a property look like a crime scene). 

Conveyancer/Solicitor – Once the sale is agreed, you’ll need a good solicitor or conveyancer to handle the paperwork. Shop around or ask for word-of-mouth recommendations to find the right professional, as a good conveyancer/solicitor can speed up the process. 

Removal firm – On the day you complete, you’ll want the logistics to run smoothly – and for your treasured possessions to be handled with care. 

Proactive seller – Sellers are vital members of the team, too! A proactive seller rids their home of clutter, so that it shines in the marketing photos, and keeps the property tidy for viewings. 

And a few special mentions 

If you’re selling up to move to a new property, your team will also include a mortgage adviser to land you the best deal and a surveyor to inspect any property you’re considering buying. 

Here at Leysbrook, we believe that selling a home is a team sport. Get in touch to find out more about our friendly, expert team.
