Tips on how to sell your home

Kerb appeal – The front of your home is the first thing that prospective buyers will see. Make it look fresh and tidy. Try a coat of paint, new plants in your garden, cut the grass, stain the fencing or how about a brand new front door. Whatever approach you take, make sure your home looks appealing from the outside. First impressions count, and will go a long way to making any potential buyer keen to look around!

Inside your home – It goes without saying that a tidy, un-cluttered home will enhance your chances of securing a buyer. Most people viewing will want to see all of the space that is available! Don’t waste time on a full decoration, the chances are the buyer will change it anyway! Do make sure however that the decor is clean and appealing.

Get the right Estate Agent – Do your homework, look at several options. Don’t just pick the agent who sold your neighbour’s house. Check several agents’ websites, compare their prices and invite 2 or 3 of them to value your home. You will know immediately when they visit which one is best to sell your home for you!

Set the right price, factor in the cost of moving – Most Agents’ will provide a minor variation in their valuation of your home. Consider this: Do you want a quick sale? Are you in a chain because you have to sell before you can buy? Are you happy to wait for a better price because you are in no hurry to move? Is it the right time of the year, and are you ready for the upheaval that moving home will cause? What about the costs, Agent fees can be high, check the detail and the small print! There is also the cost of an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate), conveyancing fees and a removals company. Make sure you shop around and get several quotes.

Finally, is it a good time to sell? – In short ‘yes’. With the stamp duty holiday in place until 31st March 2021, and the general fervour surrounding the housing market at this time. Right now could be the best opportunity you will have for quite some time to make that long awaited move – Good luck!

Testimonials

Joe has provided a 5 star service. My mum’s rental property has stood vacant for some time as she has had an extended stay in hospital. He met me at the property within days of making contact, and found us a tenant within 3 days! He even treated the weeds, fixed a broken window and sorted out the safety checks for me. It took all of the pressure off and was a very friendly and professional service. I would highly recommend!

As a tenant, the service I received from Joe was extremely quick and professional. Everything I asked about was dealt with prior to me moving in and he is very responsive to any queries I may have. I would highly recommend Target Property Services NE.

- Barbara

My property was on the market with 3 other agents for over 2 months without any success. To be honest I felt they weren’t even trying. I thought I would give Target Property Services an opportunity to market my luxury quayside apartment as I had heard good reviews about them. Within 24 hours of them listing the apartment to let, they had 2 viewings booked in and within a week a new tenancy had been agreed. First class service at a very competitive price that puts others to shame, plus an unrivaled personal touch that cannot be found with any of the better known high street estate agents. I am now very happy for Target Property Services NE to market and manage all my property portfolio. Highly recommend.

Joe has been our landlord for 5 years now and we cannot be happier. Renting from him has been an absolute pleasure. He is professional, helpful and caring, and if we ever have a problem, he is there to sort it out quickly and efficiently. The house we rent from him is lovely, and safety checks and boiler servicing are carried out regularly. We feel very much at home and cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you Joe.
