Are you struggling to sell your Forest Gate property? Here are some tips to help you sell your home or property.

Being an estate agent for over 20 years, I have definitely faced plenty of challenges when selling my clients property. Great news for you though as I have probably come face to face with every hurdle possible.

If you are struggling to sell your Forest Gate property, and you would like some pointers, here are a few tips to help you get started.

The price is too high:

When it comes to reasons a home isn’t selling, if it’s not the condition, it’s nearly always pricing.

Pricing a house too high is a common mistake and resisting the temptation to overprice your home is the biggest challenge sellers face.

Pricing a home for sale is tricky. There are a lot of ways to slice the data to determine your home’s fair market value. And while data, usually from sales of comparable homes in the area, is important, a top agent’s experience can be invaluable when building a pricing strategy.

The home needs some TLC:

It can be a bitter pill to swallow to pay for home improvements that you may not enjoy for long. But if you are struggling to sell your home and you want to sell for the full asking price, you might need to get your house in a condition that warrants it.

Your staging is bad:

It might seem silly as the buyer isn’t shopping for furniture but staging matters. There is a difference between staged homes and vacant homes, and typically, a staged home sells for more money and in a shorter amount of time.
