In the high-paced world of property, time is money. Whether you’re a first-time seller or a seasoned property investor, selling your property quickly can be an intricate jigsaw puzzle. But worry not, because we’ve got you covered! This post is your comprehensive guide to selling your property in a blink, while ensuring you get the best price for your asset.
Stellar First Impressions
The phrase ‘first impressions last’ couldn’t be more apt when selling property. Your potential buyers form their opinion about your property the moment they set foot on it. So, sprucing up your property‘s exterior and interior is an absolute must. Small upgrades like a fresh coat of paint, a well-manicured lawn, or decluttering rooms can elevate the overall appeal of your home. You should also seriously consider staging if you’re looking for a quick sale on an empty property, while achieving a higher price. This is a service we can provide, solely for our vendors. Remember, every small detail contributes to the larger picture.
Price It Right
Setting the right price for your property is absolutely crucial for a quick sale. You might be tempted to start with a high asking price, but this can discourage potential buyers. Comparing your property to similar ones in your area and getting a professional valuation can help you price it accurately – listen to advice from your agent, they know the market, the area and the mentality of local clientele. A competitively priced property creates urgency among buyers, encouraging quicker decisions.
As mentioned, professional staging can be a game-changer in selling your property quickly. Staging professionals know exactly how to highlight your property’s strengths and downplay its weaknesses. A well-staged home is not only more appealing to potential buyers, it can also increase the perceived value of your property and help it to sell much faster.
High Quality Photographs
With most buyers beginning their property search online, quality photographs can be the difference between a swift sale and a stagnant listing. Ensure you choose an agent that provides professional photography as part of the package to showcase your property in the best light. Remember, you’re not just selling a property, but a lifestyle!
Have a Marketing Strategy
Every home is unique, and its marketing should be too. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all strategy for marketing properties. We understand this, so at Arden, we prefer to create individualised plans with you, that take account of the benefits and features that your property can offer. This approach has enabled us to successfully sell hundreds of homes to the delight of our customers quickly and effectively.
Choose the Right Agent
The right estate agent can make your property sale a breeze. Look for an agent with a proven track record in your area and a strong online presence. They will not only market your property effectively, but also guide you through the entire selling process. The right agent is well worth their fees, as they can help you sell faster and often at a better price. Remember, you get what you pay for!

Be Flexible and Accommodating
Be flexible with showings and open houses. The more people see your property, the higher the chances of selling it quickly. Also, be open to negotiations. While everyone wants the highest price, an unwillingness to negotiate can deter potential buyers and prolong the selling process.
Your agent should also talk to you regarding the current mood of the property market and the location of your property, as these things can also effect the time it takes to sell your property and can ultimately increase or decrease the time it may take to sell your home.
