Setting a price for your home is pivotal for a successful and quick sale. However, it is a decision that needs to be weighed carefully: ask for too little, you risk selling your home for far less than its potential value. Ask for too much and you could drive potential buyers away.
The Importance of Being Local
So how do we work out the right price? Whilst Home Report values and market conditions play a large part in choosing the right asking price, knowing each mile of your neighbourhood together with keeping an eye on recent sales as well as historic sales in your community can also have an incredible impact on our final recommendation. Sometimes even insights into our current database of active buyers can offer hints regarding the right pricing for your home.
At Clyde Property, we have in-depth knowledge of the area and a comprehensive understanding of local trends, variations, market conditions and property values, all of which will be based on our own professional experience – rather than generic statistics gathered from third parties. We know what buyers are looking for in your area, and already have a database of registered buyers who are waiting for a property just like yours.
In our experience, these insights can make a difference of thousands of pounds to your final sale price.
Ask Questions for Your Peace of Mind
While making a decision on the price of such a valuable asset as your home, it is very important to us that you feel you’ve made the right decision. If you would like to find out more about the current market, you can take a look at current and past sale prices for properties on your street and within your postcode. You can also enquire about the property market in general. Are values increasing or decreasing? What external factors are affecting the current conditions and trends? Another important question is – is it a buyers’ or sellers’ market at the present time? If there’s a shortage of desirable properties in your area, for example, you may attract multiple viewers and competitive bidding activity.
We like you to be confident of the sale price and marketing strategy our valuers recommend as well as our proven ability to achieve the best value for your home and having all that information will give you peace of mind we have made the right decision together.
With an experienced eye and a flair for all things property, our valuers will be able to offer advice on the most effective way to market your property and achieve the best sale price. We will be able to advise on the type of buyer that would suit your home best and create a tailored marketing package to attract the right people from the start.
As your estate agent, at Clyde Property we use a combination of traditional and innovative marketing approaches to source and attract suitable potential buyers. This includes high quality photographs and HD videos; extended opening hours; accompanied viewings; targeted marketing on email, social media and multiple property sites; not to mention we leverage or our own database of registered buyers.
At Clyde Property, we are seeing continued strong demand across the entire spectrum of buyer demographics.
Investors are continuing to show strong interest in buy to lets, despite the impending tax changes; this is largely due to the high returns a lot of areas in Scotland have to offer. And if that still hasn’t assured you as a seller, home owners determined to trade up and take advantage of the great mortgage deals currently on offer are also on the lookout for their next step up the property ladder. And last but not least, first time buyers are now at an all time high and we are seeing this current amongst our current tenants who are moving onto the property ladders to become home owners.
Our current client database is filled with people looking for their next dream home, which could contain a match with your home, ensuring a speedy sale. Find out more.
