Five points to remember when you sell your home without an estate agent
Always do your research – and try to stay objective! Carefully look at other houses for sale in your street or area, and compare prices they are on for, with what you have to o er. Try to forget that your house is your home and see it as a saleable commodity instead. Every step of the way through the selling process, think of your target purchaser. Before putting your property on the market you must apply for an Energy Performance Certi cate (EPC). Home Information Packs (HIPs) are no longer needed. For more details, visit www.energyperformancecerti cates.co.uk Take good, clear photos – in daylight – of the rooms in your house to give the best impression of your property when you come to place it on a website such as www.tepilo.com Floorplans are also invaluable – you may have one left over from when you bought the property. If not, Tepilo o ers advice on how best to do this. Think about whether or not you want an advertising sign outside your house. They are known to help signi cantly with the marketing side. You can make your own if you’re creative, otherwise Tepilo o ers options for ordering one. Think about who would be best to conduct viewings – is it you or would it work better with a friend or relative who is less emotionally attached to your home? If you prefer, you can pay a key-holding company to do the viewings for you.
