Professional agent
What will likely be your first decision in the process of selling your property, but the most important decision, is picking a professional agent to work with. The right agent is not the one with the cheapest commission, the one that tells you the highest price or even the one that is your mate. The right agent is the one that can help you plan out your sale process and work with you in delivering the best result.

Planning
It doesn’t matter if you’re going to bake a cake or build a house, I’m guessing you’re going to follow a plan (or at least a recipe).  Selling a property is potentially one of the biggest decisions you will make in your life so make sure you (and your agent) have a specific plan.

Preparation
Once you’ve got a plan you then need to prepare for your properties sale. This means making sure you, your property and your team (your agent, solicitor, accountant etc.) are all prepared to work through the sale process.

Photography
Once you and your team are prepared the next step should be getting the professional photographer in. A professional photographer will make your property look even better than you could imagine and is key in maximising your enquiry.

Promotion
With professional photographs in hand a carefully considered promotional (or advertising) campaign should be laid out for the coming weeks. Having a scheduled advertising campaign has much greater impact than running ad-hoc promotions here and there.

Presentation
With the property now being promoted you will need to make sure your property is presented at its absolute best. First impressions count so make the most of these opportunities and present the property at its absolute best.

Price
With all of the above in mind price is still the most important consideration when selling a property. It is said that ‘the greatest properties in the world remain unsold due to price’. Putting the right price on your property is paramount to maximising your price.
