Be the best you can be when listing a property...

💯 It can often feel like there are 100 different top tips from estate agents when it comes to getting the best price for your home, getting you on the market and sold. 

🌟 However, not all of their advice is beneficial, or indeed trustworthy. I asked a selection of our partners for their top strategies to ensure the best sale. 

Ryan Elsam, Partner for East Ham comments “It’s important to set a competitive price. Consider market trends, recent sales data, and the unique features of your property to set a competitive and attractive price. You want to create the buzz around the property immediately to get buyers queuing!”

Michael Jones, Nested Wandsworth Partner highlights the importance of the marketing plan from the initial launch day, “Start developing and implementing your marketing plan from day one. Utilise various marketing channels, craft compelling property descriptions and highlight the most appealing aspect of your property. Use professional photography and if applicable, video.” 

He continues, “Leverage your network, especially your professional one, to open up properties to a much larger database.”

Getting buyers booked in for viewings is one thing, but the most important thing is to get those offers secured and in writing. 

“Respond promptly to enquiries,” Michael says, “follow up with interested parties and keep them engaged.” 

This is where being a self-employed agent can be the difference between winning the business and not. Our Partners offer support for buyers and vendors outside of traditional 9-6 high street hours, meaning sales are often won whilst high street branches have their doors closed. 

For Anabel Higgin, Partner for Nested Bath, the best strategy starts with you as an agent. “A great agent can greatly improve the likelihood of a smooth and successful sale by anticipating and removing some of the common stumbling blocks. Conveyancing can sometimes be seen as the most stressful part of a property sale. One strategy I like to use to soothe any stress is to make myself available outside of ‘office’ hours and address any potential issues as early as possible.” 

Whether you’re looking to sell your first home or your fiftieth, choosing the right estate agent for you is critical. Our Area Partners are your only agent throughout the sale, meaning no more mixed messages, multiple points of contact or lack of clarity, instead, you get a dedicated professional, offering a boutique approach to selling your home.
