If you’re new to selling or not quite ready to get started; the following may answer some of your questions:
One of the most important considerations for first time sellers is timing and the question we get asked time and time again is: “Should we find somewhere we like and then put our house on the market, or do we get a buyer for ours and then look for a new house?”
Our advice is always to find a buyer first, here’s why: If you find your dream home but haven’t yet got your house on the market, you’re basically telling the seller, “yes we want to buy your house, but we have no idea when we’ll be able to”.
Whilst your dream home’s owners might say yes to your offer; they’re unlikely to take their house off the market until you’ve got a good buyer for your own. In the meantime, someone else, in a better buying position could come along and make an offer that the sellers accept. To avoid disappointment, at very least ,you need to get your house on the market so potential sellers can see you’re serious about moving.
It’s also true that when selling your home, you want to get the best possible buyer and price so the last thing you need is to be under pressure to take less than you really want just so you can finally secure the house you’ve fallen in love with.
The good news is that the team at Hunter Ashley has all the knowledge and experience to guide you through the process, we take care of most of the work so you can relax and focus on finding your new home. The following outlines our service to sellers:
