Make sure you market your property at the right price from the start

Are you planning to market your property?

According to a recent report by GetAgent, adjusting a property’s asking price can increase its length of time on the market by over 50 days on average. So it’s vital to market your property at the right price from the get go!

The report uses data taken from the main property portals and the UK Land Registry and ultimately highlights that if a property price is changed, either up or down it will take on average 133 days to sell. Whereas, if a property is priced correctly from the start it only takes an average of 50 days to sell.

This report highlights the importance of getting your property valued at the correct price from the outset.

As the UK’s largest house buyer, we speak to thousands of property owners a month who have been sat on the open market for months. The most common reason this will happen is because the Estate Agent has over valued their property in order to get them on their books. In these circumstances the Estate Agent probably doesn’t have the vendors best interest at the forefront of their mind and it probably just trying to secure the instruction.

The best way to combat this is to use an experience local estate agent who has good knowledge about the area you’re selling in. A great way tool to discover the performance of an estate agent is to use GetAgent.
