Ensure to do some research of your own

Knowledge is power in negotiation. Start by researching the current market trends in your area. Look at recent sales of similar properties to get an idea of what yours might be worth. Consider factors such as location, size, amenities, and condition. The more informed you are, the better equipped you’ll be to negotiate confidently.

Set a realistic asking price

Go to market with a realistic asking price. Pricing your property too high can deter potential buyers, while pricing it too low could mean leaving money on the table. We will work with you to set a realistic asking price based on market research and the unique features of your property. A competitive yet realistic price will attract more interest and set the stage for successful negotiation. Homes that are priced correctly, sell quicker than equivalent homes that have been overpriced.

Enhance curb appeal

First impressions matter, especially in the property market. Enhance the curb appeal of your property by tidying up the exterior, mowing the lawn, planting flowers, and making any necessary repairs. A well-maintained exterior will attract more buyers and strengthen your position in negotiations.

Highlight unique selling points

Identify and highlight the unique selling points of your property. Whether it’s a stunning view, a spacious garden, or a newly renovated kitchen, emphasise these features to differentiate your property from others on the market. Highlighting what makes your property special can justify a higher asking price.

Stage your home

Presentation is key when selling a property. Stage your home to showcase its full potential and create a welcoming atmosphere for potential buyers. Declutter, remove personalised items, and arrange furniture to maximise space and appeal to a wide range of tastes.

Be flexible with viewing times

Make it easy for potential buyers to view your property by being flexible with viewing times. Accommodating prospective buyers’ schedules demonstrates your willingness to co-operate and can lead to more offers. The more interest your property generates, the stronger your position will be in negotiations.

Respond promptly to offers

When you receive an offer, respond promptly and professionally. Even if the initial offer is lower than expected, don’t dismiss it outright. Instead, consider it as a starting point for negotiation. Engage with the buyer or their agent respectfully and express your willingness to negotiate terms that are mutually beneficial.

Don’t take negotiations personally

Negotiating the sale of your property can be emotionally charged, but it’s important not to take things personally. Remember that both parties have their own interests and objectives. Approach negotiations with a level head, focusing on finding common ground and reaching a fair agreement. Keeping emotions in check will help you make rational decisions and avoid unnecessary conflicts.

Stay flexible and open-minded

Flexibility is key to successful negotiation. Be open to compromise and willing to explore different options to reach a mutually satisfactory outcome. Consider factors such as price, closing date, and contingencies when negotiating terms. A flexible approach increases the likelihood of reaching a deal that satisfies both parties.
