HOW DO YOU MOVE? SELLING YOUR HOME, STEP BY STEP

The first step in your move is finding out how much your home is likely to sell for. Although you might have seen others on the market, you’ll only know your true buying power for your next home when you have an accurate price for where you are now.

It’s always sensible to get more than one opinion, and most homeowners start by contacting three estate agents. There are many agents out there, and you might be wondering where to start, so try these handy hints:

  • Search the property portals for similar homes near you
  • Look for agencies with For Sale & Sold signs in your neighbourhood
  • Check out agents’ websites and social media channels
  • Read their reviews on Google and Facebook
  • Ask local friends & neighbours for recommendations

Potential first-time property buyers won’t feel confident about taking a new financial commitment and will adopt a ‘wait and see’ approach, starving the market of buyers.” – read HERE for the full article.
