Are you struggling to sell your Plaistow property? Here are some tips to help you sell your home or property.
If you are struggling to sell your Plaistor property, there are plenty of reasons as to why this could be the case. Let’s have a look at some of the more common ones here.
Your staging is bad:
It might seem silly as the buyer isn’t shopping for furniture but staging matters. There is a difference between staged homes and vacant homes, and typically, a staged home sells for more money and in a shorter amount of time.
The home needs some TLC:
It can be a bitter pill to swallow to pay for home improvements that you may not enjoy for long. But if you are struggling to sell your home and you want to sell for the full asking price, you might need to get your house in a condition that warrants it.
Your agent doesn’t seem to care:
Sometimes there’s nothing wrong with your house at all: It’s priced right and is well-maintained. But your agent could be turning people off. Your estate agent is meant to be your front-line representative. However, some agents have little to no personality, some are burnt-out, some don’t care, and others have no social skills.
Why I love being an estate agent in Plaistow?
Located just a stone's throw away from Stratford, Plaistow is an East London neighbourhood on the up. It offers an alternative to Stratford's hustle and bustle, yet you're only ever a short journey from mega shopping centres like Westfield. Lower rents make Plaistow an appealing option for buyers looking to save on their next home move.
How am I helping others in the Plaistow community?
I have been working as an estate agent in and around East London for over twenty years now, and I can honestly say that I love it. I love meeting the people within my local communities, helping those in need to find a new property, and of course, helping them settle in and climatise to their new surroundings.
Why Plaistow is a superb place to live?
Plaistow is a great areas to invest in property. It is so cheap at the moment, but it won't last. There are some lovely Victorian houses and terraces in the area that are just waiting to be developed. But they won't be around forever!
How to sell your Plaistow home fast?
Selling a home can be stressful, but if you are to sell your (Location) property fast, it can be even more nerve-wracking. Whether you need to sell quickly for a new job, for financial reasons or because of a personal situation, there are a few tactics you can use to increase your home’s marketability. Here are my tips on how to sell your property in the quickest time possible.
Choose your agent wisely:
When you see a home that’s been sitting on the market for a while and has some obvious detractors, like Christmas lights still hanging up in March or an unkempt lawn, your first thought should always be that the estate agent isn’t doing their job correctly. You want to be working with an estate agent who is as invested in selling your home as you are, which means someone who will tell you exactly what you’re doing wrong and how you can improve it.
When you’re selecting an agent to work with, ask for referrals from people you trust and who have been through the process themself. Also, when speaking to potential estate agents, determine how passionate they are and how well they know the local property market.
Go on the market at the right time:
The housing market usually has a pattern throughout the year, but there are always slight hurdles that tend to affect the market. So it is important that you put your property on the market at the right time so that you can get the maximum amount of interest and viewings for your home.
Price to sell:
One thing that can really speed your selling process is pricing your home competitively. Overpricing will lead to more time on the market, and ultimately, you may end up selling at that lower price anyway — it’ll just take you longer to get there.
You may even want to price your home a little lower than comparable homes in your area to drum up interest and cause a bidding war. The effectiveness of this strategy depends on the state of your local property market, so it might be a good idea to seek advice from your chosen estate agent.
