The start of every year brings new energy to the property market, so if you had no luck selling your home in 2023, take comfort that hope is still on the horizon.
As the nights get lighter and the market warms up, buyers and sellers start thinking about moving in time for summer, and our diary fills again with valuations and viewings.
It’s a buzzing time, and if you want your second shot at selling to be a success, you’ve probably got a few burning questions, like:
As with all of life’s big questions, these are best answered with a cup of your favourite brew. So pop the kettle on, take a seat, and get ready to relaunch your home and make your move this year.
Taking a break for a couple of weeks can give you enough time to recharge your batteries, formulate a new plan, and make any changes for a fresh new start.
Sometimes, there’s nothing more valuable than pausing for thought. Having the space to think is often the magic ingredient that produces the best ideas.
Comments from viewings offer valuable clues to why a home hasn’t sold, even if you don’t like what you hear. But there are extra tell-tale signs as well, so make sure you:
Once you’ve got all the comments you can handle, make some notes so you don’t forget and then take a couple of days to absorb everything you’ve heard. Then, it’s time to take some action.
If you’re relaunching your home after being on the market before, a fresh new look and feel will help catch everyone’s eye, including buyers who might otherwise scroll on by because they’ve seen your listing before.
A great way to make changes that work is to ask a candid friend or relative to wander around and make suggestions for improvements - a fresh pair of eyes will notice things you miss or have gotten used to.
Although the market in 2023 wasn’t ideal for selling a home, it may not be the only reason you didn’t find a buyer, so it’s worth digging a little deeper before you have another go.
