Most people tend to think of selling a house as being pretty easy. After all, you need to be on the ball when buying a house, since your ideal property will likely get snapped up extremely quickly if you don’t move fast. Surely, then, that must mean that most houses sell fairly quickly, right? Unfortunately, that’s not the case for everyone- and if you’re reading this article, it’s likely that you’re wondering why you are stuck in this situation.

It’s easy to put the blame on your property, or to tell yourself that you simply aren’t going to get that quick sale you were hoping for. That attitude won’t change anything, though- if you really want to sell your property, but find that the buyers just aren’t buying, you need to find the reason behind the problem and fix it. In this article, we’ll take you through some of the common mistakes that sellers make, and guide you towards putting things right.

Firstly, you should know that if your home just isn’t selling, you’re not alone. Around 60% of homeowners don’t manage to make a sale with their first estate agent. All too often, this is because the main thing that attracted them to that agent was a low fee. Instead of looking at the quality of service each agent provides, plenty of sellers are blinded by the prospect of getting slightly more money from selling their home. However, that doesn’t mean anything if you don’t actually make the sale!

At Lovelles, we do things differently. As well as offering a fair price for our services, we also go the extra mile to provide a truly comprehensive service that will help you to sell your property quicker. After all, it’s in everyone’s interests to make the sale, so we don’t see the point in waiting around! The crucial difference between a good estate agent and a bad one is how much work they are willing to put in- and with our hands-on approach, we’re the ideal partner for you.

When it comes to selling a property, first impressions are everything. A quick search online will show you that there are hundreds of different properties in any area at any given point in time. Potential buyers might therefore only have time to glance over your listing before moving on to another one, so it’s essential that you catch their eye. To do that, you’ll want to include a professional set of photos which really sell your property’s strong points, and highlight anything which will help you stand out from the crowd. Rooms need to be carefully prepared, as well as nice and bright to emphasize the space. We’ll help you come up with a stunning set of photos that will do your property proud.

Once those photos have grabbed a potential buyer’s attention, they’ll naturally want to know more about the property. That’s where lifestyle descriptions come in. People don’t just want to know how many windows a room has, or about the radiators in the home- they’re going to be living there, so they will want some ideas about what the property has to offer in terms of their lifestyle. Describe not just the look, but the feel of the property, and you’ll be going a long way to convincing buyers that this is the home for them. Coupled with effective floor plans, and you’ll be making the most out of your property, and giving it the best chance for success. Don’t leave it up to chance- team up with Lovelles, and we’ll provide your property with everything it needs to find a buyer!
