September often brings a flood of property to the market, but you can get ahead of the game by preparing to sell in August.
Being ready to go when September starts means your photos can be taken earlier, boosting your home with some extra summer pep from the sunnier weather.
After the school year starts, estate agents’ diaries fill up with valuations and photoshoots, which can mean a longer wait to go live. So instead of launching in a crowd, give yourself a jump-start by:
We’ve got expert tips on all of that right here in our handy guide, so without further ado or delay, let’s dive right in!
