How to achieve a profitable home sale in the UK

The housing market has been on the rise in the UK, but that doesn't mean estate agents have to be the only ones to profit. Thanks to the wide variety of tools available today, more sellers than ever are attempting to sell their properties on their own.

If you're interested in selling your home yourself in the UK, keep these tips in mind to increase your chance of completing a profitable sale.

Make Your Home Look as Appealing as Possible

It's been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, so taking excellent pictures of your property is vital. Before you start snapping photos, remove extra items and extraneous furnishings from every room of your home. If your living room is packed to the brim with furniture and knick-knacks, buyers won't be able to concentrate on the beauty of your hardwood floors and large picture windows.

You only get one chance to make a first impression, so give special effort to the curb appeal of your home. Make sure your lawn and shrubs are well manicured, give your front porch a good cleaning and add some colourful throw pillows on your outdoor chairs for a stylish touch.

The idea is to make your home look good with various small improvements that will give your home a visual appeal, as well as actually improve your home.

Use the power of the Internet
You will find plenty of online resources that will help you
promote and sell your home

Harness the Power of the Internet

If you're ready to sell your home yourself, the Internet is your best friend. You can take advantage of a long list of helpful resources. Online estate agents such as The Little House Company were created specifically for those who are trying to buy and sell properties without estate agents. The fees are minimal, so you can keep more money in your pocket instead of paying a huge commission to an estate agent. However, you still get to benefit from wide online exposure. Whether you're trying to sell a small flat or a spacious detached house, listing your property on a popular website is a great way to connect with prospective buyers.

The power of social media sites
Social media sites are an excellent online marketing option
to run announcements about your property

Don't Be Shy

Finally, don't be afraid to tell everyone you know that you are selling your property. Your co-worker might not be interested in buying a home in the UK, but he could turn around and tell his sister about your newly listed property. It doesn't cost anything to place announcements about your property on your social media sites. Add photos to Facebook, post details to Twitter, and encourage your friends to share the information on social media with as many people as possible. You never know which connection will turn out to be the perfect buyer!
