Video transcript I think one of the mistakes that people make is they think that they’ll need to put in a new kitchen or bathroom into the house, when they are getting ready to sell. That could be an expensive mistake, because many people actually want to put their own kitchen in and they don’t want to throw out one that’s brand new but not to their taste, save money on things like that, but at the same time make sure you do declutter, because most people are looking to move because they need more space.So when you’re looking at selling your house, you need to get your ducks in a row. Firstly get yourself a solicitor, secondly work out what you’re going to do. Because a lot of people put their houses on the market thinking that they’ll have months to have a look for somewhere to live et cetera. However sometimes you may get an offer, a good offer on the first day.I did. I put mine on the market, and I had two viewings on the first day, and I had nearly the asking price offered to me, on that first day and I took it. In reality the first offers you get are generally the best, so you want to be in a position to snap their hand off. It’s really important when you’re choosing your selling agent not to be a cheapskate.You don’t go for the one who’s offering you the lowest fee, and you don’t go for the one who’s offering you to sell your house at what even you know is an over-inflated price. It’ll come back and bite you. You need a good quality agent, who’s going to get good quality buyers, and do a darn good job at negotiating the very best price for you.And for that, you need to actually pay a reasonable fee. When you’re selling your house, and you got a viewing, get out of the house. Honestly, nobody likes the seller being in, it makes them feel uncomfortable, and awkward. Get out, leave it to the agent.
