9 house selling tips

Selling your house quickly and at the best price; of course everyone wants that. The best result can only be achieved with the right approach and the right preparation. The following "house selling tips" are worth their weight in gold!

1. Prepare your home for sale

Before you can sell your house, it is important to get your property fully ready for sale. Are there any chores that still need to be done? Could the walls use a refresh? These are important aspects to consider.

In addition, you clean the property completely and tidy everything up. After all, a tidy house looks a lot more attractive. Also gather all measurements of the property and other details, such as the warranty period of appliances and subscription prices.

2. Take professional photos

When your property is ready for sale, it is important to capture it professionally on screen. Beautiful photos and inviting videos increase public interest.

If you are going to sell your property yourself, you can take the photos yourself with your own phone. This does take a bit of practice, but with the right tips you will soon get the hang of it. You will find several good examples in the subscription documents on Globelander. Of course, outsourcing photography is also an option.

3. Write attractive sales copy

Writing a sales pitch is easier than you might think. However, there are some things you need to consider. Large pieces of text are often unappealing and difficult to read. Therefore, use bullet points and be clear in your descriptions. Always end with an invitation to get in touch.

4. Set a realistic selling price

When you are going to sell your property yourself, you will also have to determine the selling price. What did you pay for the property yourself? And what is your mortgage? It is also important to look at similar properties in the area. At what price have these properties been sold?

You can always get a valuation through a third party. You can use this valuation as a guideline when determining the asking price.

5. Promote your home online

When you sell your property on Globelander, you advertise your property worldwide. People all over the world can view your property and show interest. We also recommend promoting your property in other ways. Let your friends, family and acquaintances know that you are selling your home and advertise on social media. The more people know about the sale, the faster you will find potential buyers.

An advertising poster, window V-sign or garden sign will also bring attention to your property. Feel free to email us if you need a poster or sign!

6. Enlist help where necessary

With the information and instructions on Globelander, you have all the knowledge you need to sell your property yourself. So you don't pay an estate agent's commission. Of course, it is always possible to outsource certain aspects, such as photography, writing sales texts and doing the viewings. Think carefully in advance about what you want to do yourself and what you want to outsource.

7. Organise viewings

The viewings you can arrange all by yourself. Schedule viewings at a time when you have enough time for yourself and prepare everything carefully. Clean up the house and make sure you have all the important papers and details to hand.

Always be honest and also mention any defects during the viewing. In addition, you can tell personal stories, for instance about why you bought the house and why you are going to sell it, but avoid speaking for too long. Also let the potential buyers ask questions.

8. Know how to negotiate

Have you received an offer? You can accept the offer immediately, but it is also possible to negotiate. When you make a counter-offer, you are negotiating with the relevant party. You cannot then negotiate with other potential buyers.

Decide in advance how much you want at least for the property and do not deviate from this easily. Also determine the room for negotiation.

9. Arrange legal matters

Have you come to an agreement? Then it's time to sort out the legalities. Have a purchase contract drawn up by the notary or draft one yourself. It is important that this is done properly. Therefore, always take the time to perform checks and only put your signature when you know everything is correct.
