1- The price.
Setting a competitive price is essential if you want to sell quickly, otherwise you will have to be very clear about what makes your house stand out from the others in the area in order to be able to argue the higher price. The property can stand out for a number of reasons: recently refurbished, views, private parking, swimming pool, sold with furniture and tastefully decorated, etc.
Currently there are many tools that can help you to value the right price quite accurately but the one we like the most is the one available on our page of valuations, if you want to value, click the following button:
You can choose to hire an estate agent or do it yourself. We recommend that you use the services of an estate agent as this can facilitate all the paperwork and procedures involved in the sale. When choosing an estate agent, we recommend that you choose those with the most experience and the best and most highly trained. Nowadays you don’t need a degree to work in this sector, which means that unfortunately there are many people who will just advertise your house and put you in contact with the buyer.
