Four marketing tips to secure a sale before Christmas

If selling your property is still on your 2021 to-do list, time is of the essence. Although there’s just 8 weeks left until Christmas, there’s still lots of great buyers looking to find the perfect property before the big day.

These are our top four marketing tips, which will maximise your chance of selling long before you put up the tree!

Professional Photography

It sounds obvious but it’s amazing how many terrible property pictures you see on Rightmove. It doesn’t matter how good your property is, if you’ve got bad photos, no buyers will ever make it through the front door to see how nice it is.

Thankfully, our agents are trained in photography and know how to take the very best photos to show off your home.

Video tours

Since last year, property marketing has taken significant strides forward. Video is certainly the future, and our research shows that buyer interaction is significantly higher for properties with videos tours.

That’s why, as well as our professional photography, we’ll film your property and create an engaging video to publish on social media channels, our website and major property portals. Making sure your property stands out and attracts all the best buyers.

Small home improvements

Everyone loves a show home. And although your property doesn’t need to be a show home, there are a few little staging tricks that aren’t expensive but highly impactful and can make all the difference when selling your property.

As well as staging your home, when visiting your property for the first time, our agents will advise you on any things they think you could do to help with the marketing and sale. From a lick of paint or a new front door, to a brighter light bulb and tidying up the garden, there’s lots of small touch ups and investments you can make that’ll attract more buyers and help you sell for the best price.

If you’re thinking about making some larger improvements before selling, like new carpets or even refitting the bathroom, our agents will advise if it’ll effect the property value enough to be worth the investment.

Open Houses

When you are ready to sell, Open Houses are better for everyone! Open Houses are not like the old days though, now they are by appointment only and our agents ensure any surfaces and handles are sanitised between each viewing. Although Open Houses might run a little differently, the benefits are still fantastic.

For buyers, with so much fierce competition for properties, this gives them a fair opportunity to see and buy a property if they like it.

For sellers, it’s much less hassle, as you only need to get your property ready for viewings once. With Open Houses, you are also more likely to achieve a sale faster and for a higher price.

Christmas is only 8 weeks away but that is still plenty of time to get your property sold. If you’re serious about moving, get in contact with your local Prospect office today or click here to book a free property valuation.
