F YOU are con­sid­er­ing sell­ing your prop­erty but are wor­ried that now is not a good time to sell, think again! The de­mand for prop­erty is stronger than ever, and there’s a long list of se­ri­ous buy­ers cur­rently look­ing, ea­ger to move in the New Year.

So get ahead of the game, beat the New Year rush and talk to The Frost Part­ner­ship. If you get every­thing in place now you’ll have a head start on the rest of the mar­ket. Even over the Christ­mas pe­riod, house hunters are ac­tively look­ing. Last year on Christ­mas Day, Right­move re­ceived over 1 mil­lion vis­its to their site and over 2.2 mil­lion vis­its on New Year’s Day, so now’s the time to get ready for Jan­uary sales.

Firstly you’ll need an ac­cu­rate ap­praisal of what your prop­erty is worth, con­sid­er­ing cur­rent mar­ket con­di­tions and key lo­cal fac­tors such as park­ing, lo­cal ameni­ties and trans­port links.We can also ad­vise on the com­pe­ti­tion and which sec­tor of the mar­ket you’ll be tar­get­ing.

It’s a good idea to ap­point an NAEA agent you can trust to ad­vise you on mar­ket­ing your prop­erty.

They will pre­pare par­tic­u­lars with qual­ity pho­to­graphs, floor plans and a vir­tual tour.

Con­sider which fix­tures and fit­tings to in­clude in the sale and as­sem­ble any use­ful in­for­ma­tion for your agent such as coun­cil tax de­tails, util­ity, build­ings and con­tents in­sur­ance bills and ser­vice charges.

De­cid­ing to sell your home may be the big­gest de­ci­sion you will ever make. By us­ing the ser­vices of pro­fes­sion­als with ex­pert knowl­edge and le­gal pro­tec­tion, you min­imise the risks in­volved, po­ten­tially sav­ing both time and money.

Once you know the cur­rent mar­ket value of your home you can as­sess your fi­nances and what you can af­ford to buy. If you re­quire fi­nance, seek in­de­pen­dent mort­gage ad­vice for what is cur­rently avail­able. It’s a good idea to cal­cu­late all of the costs in­volved in mov­ing, in­clud­ing mort­gage fees, stamp duty and fur­ni­ture re­moval costs, and fac­tor these into your fi­nan­cial equa­tions.

The fi­nan­cial and le­gal as­pects of mov­ing have be­come in­creas­ingly com­plex so if you’re look­ing to sell in the New Year it’s a good idea to start plan­ning now.

We can in­tro­duce you to trusted fi­nan­cial ad­vis­ers and solic­i­tors to of­fer ad­vice when you need it.

For a FREE, no obli­ga­tion mar­ket ap­praisal just call your lo­cal Frost Part­ner­ship of­fice.
