How to Sell Your Home Quickly in Liverpool

In order to start the process of moving home in Liverpool, most people will want to sell their current home first. The equity from this property (the difference between the amount you sell the property for versus the amount left on your mortgage balance) will be your deposit for your purchase.

If you would like to put money towards this, you can either use your savings or be gifted a portion of/the full deposit by a family member.

Realistic Asking Prices

If you’re selling your property, you will always have an ideal number you’re looking for. How quickly a home sells though completely depends on how the property is marketed and presented.

You should always be realistic with your asking price, opting for one close to the average price of the area you’re in. If the average property is worth £100,000, then asking for something in the way of £350,000 is just too much and you likely won’t make a sale.

The estate agent will suggest the highest potential sale price, but their options aren’t always the best so it’s worth doing your own research. With websites like Zoopla and Rightmove now aiding home buyers and sellers, making that initial leap onto the market is of great importance.

Your primary focus should be generating as many property viewings as possible within the first 2 weeks of your property being listed. If after those first two weeks there’s been little to no interest, it’s likely your property was overvalued.

People buy from people, so always remember that when it comes to preparing your property. If it appeals to you, it’ll likely appeal to a potential buyer. There’s no greater feeling in the world of buying and selling homes.

Than showcasing a well-presented home that truly showcases the hard work you put into it.

Mentioning any minor issues you’ve had truly goes a long way. Furthering the bond of trust you build with the potential buyer, as they walk around your home. This includes things such as broken leaks that you’ve since fixed.

It presents a balanced view and goes down well with most. Estate agents will want to earn a commission, but nobody knows your property as you do.

Finally, remember the emotions you felt when buying your home and all the happy memories you shared there.
