London’s home prices have increased lately, but they’re still not the most difficult to deal with relative to other major cities. Add to that the perks of actually living in London, from its fantastic mesh of public transportation options to the stable job market, and there are plenty of reasons to buy in the city.
Of course, many buyers also have probably become sellers, too, at one point or another in their lives, all with various reasons for selling. Regardless of their motivations behind this decision to sell, however, is the requirement that the agents be able to “sell my house fast in London.”
Besides, It’s not going to be as simple as that, though, and here it becomes important that you are able to narrow down a price point that’s good for the buyer, and for you, as the seller. Here’s how to give both parties the most “bang for their buck”.
1. Interact with your agent
You’ll hopefully have an agent, and you’ve hired them for a reason. Their advice can act as a lodestar for your selling process, and to correct you along the way. You don’t always have to follow their advice, but this of course is the most preferable. After all, they are the professionals, so they would know about the best strategies to implement for your sale. It was you who approached them and asked to “sell my house in London”, after all, so you should be open to their methods in helping you achieve that goal.
2. Consider how your price looks
It’s a common strategy among retailers to sell things just a pence under 4 or 5 pounds, to make the first digit look good. This is an uncommon house selling strategy, and it can work, but odd-looking prices can stand out as much as painted walls or personal effects. If you do away with those, then it’s equally advisable to avoid getting too creative with the price.
3. Don’t go too low
If you go too low, it looks suspicious. Potential buyers will tend to become curious as to why you are willing to price your house that way, and may even suspect that there is some hidden damage or problem that will be left up to them to fix. Lower isn’t always better, so calibrate your price carefully.
