Due to the slow economy, many people are forced to sell their properties nowadays.

People might have to sell their property due to any of the following reasons:
• Repossessions
• Relocating/Emigrating
• Financial difficulties
• New house purchase
• Divorce/Separation
• Equity Release
Whatever the reason is, if you don’t take care of certain things you might end up being a loser.

Some things which you should take into consideration are:

1. Clean up your front lawn: Make sure that the grass is properly mowed, the trees and shrubs are neatly trimmed, and garbage and junk is thrown away. The yard gives the first impression about the property and first impression is the last impression. Always remember that a pristine property looks welcoming and catches the fancy of any potential buyer immediately. On the other hand an unclean and unkept house would put off any customer at the first go.

2. De-clutter your home: You should remove all the clutter from every nook and corner of your house before you even put your house for sale because a cluttered house will not invite any positive signals from either the brokers or the prospective buyers.

3. Try to avoid selling the house yourself: Statistics have shown that realtors yield better selling prices by more than 10% as compared to selling the house by the owner himself/herself.

4. Consult the realtors to fix your price: Before you put your asking price, get an understanding of what is the average price range of your kind of house in the area. Get a quote from a couple of realtors so that you can average out a price.

5. Abide by the realtors advice: If you want to sell your property quickly then consider your realtors price recommendation seriously. You will have to trust your realtor because your realtor will only give you a real price which will help you sell your property quickly. Also, be flexible to change the prices as and when needed. Keep studying the market trend and based on the analysis, you may have to decrease your prices to be competitive in the market.
