Price Property Sensibly for a Quick Sale
The UK’s largest independent estate agency, haart, says canny sellers will benefit from the recent cut in mortgage rates if they bite the bullet and price their property correctly in the first place.
According to haart, many sellers still have unrealistic expectations about what their property is worth in the current property market. However, they should also recognise they can pick up a bargain if they are buying, balancing out any losses incurred.
Paul Smith, Chief Executive of haart, said: “People are still keen to buy, even in the current uncertain market, and pricing your property correctly is the best way of attracting people to view. If both price and property are attractive, you could get multiple offers and be able to negotiate a deal that’s not far off the asking
However, prospective buyers will be put off by over-optimistic pricing, leading to potential delays and other problems with a sale.
“It’s very tempting to ask as much as possible for your property on the basis that you can always come down if you have to. However, our experience suggests that over-pricing may mean buyers don’t even bother to view and will look elsewhere instead.
“This could lead to your property staying on the market for weeks, prolonging the inconvenience of showing people round, and possibly delaying important lifemoves. If your property hangs around too long people will be further put off because they’ll wonder what’s wrong with it.
“Delays can also wreck chains. No one wants their sale to be delayed by a chain which has got bogged down because one of the vendors can’t sell.
“The cut in mortgage rates means we now have many more people able to get cheaper deals; this means anyone with a well-priced property is now in a far better position to sell and we should see the green shoots of growth returning once more to the housing market.”
