Why Selling Your Kent Home Should
Be a Team Effort

Selling a home is not a
solo project – well, not if you hope to achieve top selling price. A three-minute

If there’s one piece of property advice worth
remembering, it’s this: be wary of anyone who tells you that selling a home is
so easy that you should do it yourself.

Many things in life are easy, like singing Baa Baa
Black Sheep out of key or eating a whole packet of chocolate biscuits/family-sized
crisps in one afternoon.

But what’s not a doddle is achieving top asking
price for a property (and if you’re going to the effort of selling your home,
that’s what you want, right?).

It takes a team with expertise and experience across
a range of areas to nail a great sale.

Not even the most ingenious multi-tasker has the
skills to cover all the bases themselves.

Here’s a list of who should be on your home-selling

Estate agent
a good agent will be an expert on the local area and get the asking price just
right. They should be a pro at viewings and negotiations and have a savvy
social media strategy to generate interest in your property.

All top agents use a professional photographer for marketing photos. Most
viewers start their property search online and expect to see high-quality
images (not shadowy snaps that make a property look like a crime scene).

Conveyancer/Solicitor– Once the sale is agreed, you’ll need a good solicitor or
conveyancer to handle the paperwork. Shop around or ask for word-of-mouth
recommendations to find the right professional, as a good conveyancer/solicitor
can speed up the process.

Removal firm
On the day you complete, you’ll want the logistics to run smoothly – and for
your treasured possessions to be handled with care.

Proactive seller – Sellers are vital members of the team, too! A proactive
seller rids their home of clutter, so that it shines in the marketing photos,
and keeps the property tidy for viewings.

And a few special mentions

If you’re selling up to move to a new property, your
team will also include a mortgage adviser to land you the best deal and a
surveyor to inspect any property you’re considering buying.
