Number of new property listings in London nearly double the national average of 10%
New property listings are up 17% in London, beating the national average of 10%, as reported in Financial Reporter.
Competition to sell property is high, meaning those looking to sell need to make their property as attractive as possible to potential buyers in order to stand out from the crowd.
Repainting your house prior to selling, cleaning the inside and outside of your house, and allowing as much natural light in as possible are all contributing factors to selling quickly and efficiently.
Sellers should pay particular focus to what is increasingly seen as the most valuable room in the house – the kitchen. Ensuring kitchen counter tops are sparkling, white goods are clean and polished, and decluttering all the important surfaces (bar a bowl of fruit perhaps) can make for an impressive kitchen which can make the difference to the unsure buyer. A kitchen can be cheaply transformed by replacing worktops with more expensive materials.
Sellers have to pay attention to many different aspects during a sale, and our ‘My Account’ systems can help them organise the process. Sellers are able to see how often their property is being viewed online, manage property viewings, and understand prospective buyers’ feedback - just a few of the things sellers have to deal with during a complicated process.
Stephen Ludlow, Chairman at Ludlowthompson, comments “Homeowners are seeing increased competition when it comes to selling their property. Using an estate agent ensures sellers get the best advice on how not only to make your property as attractive to buyers as possible, but also on how to manage prospective viewings.
"Any individual that is thinking of potentially selling their property should make use of their local agent and their extensive knowledge. Getting an up-to-date valuation and learning current market advice is always free and doesn't commit anyone to anything.
“The My Account system gives sellers a huge range of information helping them to understand exactly what is happening with their property and gain real time feedback on the progress of their sale."
