Tips to Sell your Property > 5 Key Points

Bet on First Impressions

Studies show that a buyer forms their opinion on a property in the first 90 seconds of their visit. Besides the general condition of the property, there are still details that could help improve that first impression.

In this context, the experience of our agents will be an asset as we are connoisseurs of home staging techniques that allow you to prepare a property in order to make it more attractive to potential buyers. According to some American studies, properties that were previously prepared with this technique were sold, on average, twice as fast.

Fixing the Right Price

Many owners associate stories and personal experiences to their property, with a tendency to overvalue affective issues. Entering the market at an unrealistic price, the property is automatically limited in comparisson to others. On the other hand, setting too low a price can be counterproductive because it may raise the suspicion that there is something wrong with the property and it could therefore be a less secure investment. Therefore, the key is, to avoid disappointments and establish a " fair price " . Ie , a value that is good for you , but to help you find the right buyer.

Preparation is the key to making the sale! A common mistake which many experts refer to is the constant tendency of not preparing the property prior to placing them on the market. The way they present them to prospective buyers, can make all the difference between success or failure. Buyers tend to judge homes by the effort required to move. The less they have to spend to live in the property, the greater the value that they will be willing to pay for it .
