If you are finally ready to sell your home and move into a smaller or bigger place, then you will want to get the best price. Figuring out the price will be far easier once you employ the services of property valuers. However, there are some tips to bear in mind before inviting property valuers into your home.

Selling the family home can be a difficult decision in itself. It can be made even worse when you do not get the right price for the property. This is a place that is laden with memories and if you are going to sell it you want to know that the price reflects what it is truly worth. Unfortunately, at the moment it is a buyers’ market. Which means that you will have to make sure that every single aspect of your home is in tip top condition if you want to get a decent price for it. This is why it is important to bear the following tips in mind before inviting the property valuers into your home:

  • Check for damp: depending on the age of your home, damp might be a non-issue or a serious one. It is a good idea to take a look around your home and discover if there are any damp areas. You will then need to call in the experts to say what type of damp it is and if it can be fixed. If it can be fixed then it should be done. It will certainly help to increase the value of your home.
  • Give it a new coat of paint: there are probably many areas in your home where the paint has started to peal. Giving the walls a fresh lick of paint is always a good idea before selling. It may also be necessary to tone down the colours that you on your walls currently. Neutral tones allows for the potential buyers to see themselves in the home, which is something that is taken into consideration during the valuation.
  • Prune up the outside: your garden is just as important as the interior of your house. It is a good idea to have nicely mowed lawns and no weeds around. Making your home presentable from the outside in, is important. Especially since first impressions do count.
  • Be open to advice: when the valuers do come, they may make suggestions as to how you can increase the initial value they have placed on the home. If you are willing to make these additional changes then do so and invite them back after completion.
