What Selling My House In Leicester Means

If you are considering putting your Leicester property on the market, you are in the right place. With thousands of people listing their properties, it’s important to stand out from the crowd and offer something unique. We are able to provide expert advice on selling services from home viewing support and expertise, Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs), and what they mean when selling your home to comprehensive conveyancing services here in Leicester. If you’d like to learn more about any of the above, read on! 

Accompanied Property Viewings

An accompanied house viewing in Leicester can make all the difference to getting your home sold, making it one of the most important services for home sellers in Leicester like you. 

Don’t just rely on someone simply opening the door to prospective buyers and letting them take a look around the property on their own. It’s important to help the prospective buyer to understand the property as you do, so making sure that they are viewing the property with an industry expert is the first step in making sure you attract the right prospective buyers and drive towards the end sale. 

An accompanied viewing can be the best way to do this. Not only will accompanied viewings help your potential buyers to understand the ins and outs of the property, but accompanied viewers can act as an effective sales tool, allowing more opportunities to sell your home in Leicester quickly and efficiently. 

At Open House Estate Agents Leicester, we understand the importance of accompanied viewings and the value they hold when selling your home or property. With us, you will have an expert personal housing agent who knows the property and the Leicester housing market well and can bring to light some of the most important home selling points and techniques for any credible prospective buyer. 

We will give the buyer the time they need to become confident that your house is the one for them, answering any questions that they have. On most occasions, we are able to close the deal there and then, reducing the time that it takes to sell your house. Should the prospective buyers have questions outside the accompanied property viewing, we will answer them too.

This approach has proved highly effective in the past and has the benefit of not eating into the seller’s valuable time. Read about how we sold one property that had been on the market for a year in just three weeks.

Energy Performance Certificates

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) gives potential buyers an overview of the energy efficiency rating of the property. The certificate can provide potential buyers or renters with an indication of energy costs as well as where the rating could be improved too. 

Of course, a high rating is likely to attract potential buyers and give your home a better chance of selling quickly. An EPC is legally required before a house can be marketed for sale, which means all potential buyers and viewers of the property will have access to this rating.

An EPC rating will rank the property on how energy efficient it is. ‘A’ being the best rating, scaling to a ‘G’. 

With so much emphasis now placed on energy efficiency ratings due to the increased interest in both housing and overall energy consumption rates in the UK and with many people now considering energy ratings, renewable sources of energy, and waste management as key processes in the buying process, it is more important than ever to understand your EPC rating.It is also crucial to know how to communicate with potential buyers about what this might mean for them. Many more prospective buyers are now relying on the results of a property’s EPC rating when considering purchasing a new home or property in Leicester. 

An EPC rating is valid for around 10 years, meaning if you have purchased your current home or property in that timeframe, you will likely already have a verified EPC rating that can be used for future home-buyers. If you bought your property within that time period, you will probably have one already. 

If not, there’s no need to worry. Here at Open House Leicester, we work with a team of local certified energy assessors who are generally able to provide you with an EPC rating within 48 hours of your enquiry.

The Importance Of Property Floor Plans And Professional Property Photographs 

A property listed with a clear floor plan and professional photography typically gets much better traction from more suitable prospective buyers than one listed without them.

The buyer will be able to more easily picture themselves in the property you are selling and get a better idea of how it will suit their lifestyle or how it could be adapted to do so, along with planning future furniture arrangements. 

If the floor plan clearly indicates that a property is unsuitable, it means time can be saved through avoiding unnecessary viewings, saving you time as the property seller. A floor plan will also appeal to those who prefer visual information over lengthy, wordy property descriptions, so increasing your chances of the property being seen by an interested prospective buyer, as crucially, selling your home is also about selling the idea of your house as a home and allowing potential buyers to imagine their life there.

We are able to create a professional floor plan for your property that will help your property to sell in no time.

With the right quality photo, you can also attract the most appropriate buyers for your property. The best photographs will have an impact when selling your property since they are one of the key selling points before a viewing.
