Selling your house is probably one of the most talked about topics that I have frequently with my friends, colleagues and family. It’s such a fulfilling and interesting journey, where you can never be certain what’s actually going to happen, especially from my own experience. For myself, yes the process is stressful, and people say that this is one of the most stressful things to do in your lifetime. I can see why now. It’s a lot of decision making, thinking outside the box and negotiating with the buyer as well as the solicitors, surveyors and estate agents. I imagine most people will experience this at some point in their life.
After owning my apartment for over two years, it was time to upscale. From working fulltime and saving for the deposit, I wanted a bigger space, a lovely garden and to be back in my hometown of Wednesfield, Wolverhampton. I love Wolverhampton, it’s part of the black country and is well known for the black country accent and passion for the community.
The process itself relies on just one word in my experience, communication. Communication is key in the moving house process as it will make it smooth as possible and will help move the process along. Selling your home can be very stressful but so rewarding when it happens.
So who’s heard of that dreadful phrase of ‘fall through’? I know that phrase and I heard it many times, three times to be exact. It’s a daunting phrase to hear but by bringing the positives from it and seeing what you can improve, it will allow you to see forward and finally get that sale, at the right price. I always asked why has it fallen through now? they seemed to love it at first! That is probably the case! However circumstances can change and I respect that.
Over the 15 viewings that I had at my home, I had learnt to get in the mind set of ‘viewing mode’ and even learnt some handy tips and tricks.
My tips to help sell your home effectvely are:
With all that said, my apartment has now been sold subject to contract, third time lucky you may say! At times this journey has been stressful, emotional and hard wearing. I can honestly say that looking back, it’s been a rollercoaster but I have enjoyed every minute of it. I have learnt a great deal about myself, by gaining confidence with people and presenting myself. As this journey ends another one begins finding a house in Wolverhampton and making that my home.
