A few minor touch-ups can go a long way towards making a favorable impression on potential buyers. Here are some tips that will help make the process smooth.

Access is essential

Properties that don’t get shown easily don't get sold. Make it easy for your agent and potential buyer to get into your property. If your property is tenanted, keep the tenant informed and happy and informed about the viewings and make the sure the tenant is cooperative and does not hinder the viewing.

Get real about pricing

Today's buyers are well researched and have a fair idea of the property pricing in your area. Ask your agent about the sales price of similar sold properties in your area. Your agent can also help you evaluate the property and suggest the selling price that is competitive and fair.

Documents

Have your documents ready before the property gets onto the market. Any delay in producing necessary documents can turn off buyer’s interest and can fail a sale. Make sure you have supplied the required documents to your agent before the property is being advertised for sale.

Choose an established broker

Your first consideration should be whether you need an agent. Selling your property is a marathon and not a sprint, from deciding the right price to advertising and showings to completing legal formalities. Appointing an agent can be a good decision as an established broker will have a network that reaches far beyond the city. In most cases an agent will have potential buyers internationally. Real Estate brokerages have in-house marketing teams and strategies in place that can get your property the exposure it needs to be sold at the best price. You can also choose to list with a broker exclusive as exclusive listings have the potential to get much more exposure than normal listing and are better seen and sold quickly.
