  • When is the best time to sell my house?

    Spring is commonly believed to be the best time to sell by some whilst other people believe there is a strategic advantage in marketing their home during the quiet winter periods when other sellers are on holidays and fewer properties are on the market, as such attracting buyers to their home. Depending on your area, agent’s sales figures can often tell a different story. The best time for your home will depend on your location and what other factors influence market movements in that area. Homes in beach suburbs, tourist areas or close to universities, for example will experience seasonal highs and lows which attract people to the area at different times. Ultimately, the timing on your sale will depend on what works best for your individual situation. Speak to your Highland Property Agents area specialist to discuss the timing for marketing your home.

  • How should I prepare my home for an open home?

    An open home is like a first date, you only get one chance to make a great first impression. A clean, tidy and clutter free home inside and out will be appealing to prospective buyers. It is recommended to keep personal effects to a minimum to allow potential buyers to focus on the house rather than your belongings. Give your home a fresh, light and welcoming feel with flowers, curtains pulled back to fill rooms with natural light, fresh air and a subtle pleasant fragrance to eliminate any food or pet odours which may be off putting to potential buyers. Contact your Highland Property Agents area specialist for a confidential discussion on how to best prepare your property for open homes.

  • What pre-sales repairs or renovations can really add value?

    Ensuring your home is in good repair and presents well will be vital to achieving a successful sale. A fresh coat of paint and a few minor fixes may make a huge difference to buyer interest. In some cases more extensive renovations may add value, however you need to consider the cost of renovations versus the potential return as not all renovations result in a profit when you sell your property. For some properties, leaving them in their original condition can sometimes be the best option giving buyers the opportunity to put their own unique stamp on the home. For an expert opinion on what repairs or renovations will add value to your properties sale price contact your Highland Property Agents area specialist.

  • Is it really worth paying for a home stylist?

    Depending on the property, home styling can often add thousands to the sales price. Home styling can transform a busy cluttered looking family home and give it a minimalistic up-market feel. The benefit of styling is that it allows potential buyers to forget about you and your family living in the house and imagine themselves in it and what they can do with it. Contact your Highland Property Agents area specialist for a confidential discussion regarding the benefits of home styling and how this can influence your property’s marketing strategy.
