Top Tips to sell your Mallorca Home faster in 2019
Price it right from the start.
Sellers often think they should start the asking price high and then lower it later if the house fails to sell. But that can result in a slower sale – sometimes even at a lower price. The first 90 days activity of your house being on the market is always the best activity you’re going to see. If the price is too high, many buyers will stay away, assuming you’re not serious about selling or you’re unwilling to negotiate.
Add a few highlights
This could mean adding new planting flowers, some paint here and there. Prospective buyers form an opinion the moment they spot the home. Driving into the driveway and walking into that front door sets the expectations.
Clean, declutter and depersonalise.
If you have the time and options, the fewer things there are in the home, the larger it will look, so remove knickknacks and excess furniture. Also take down family photos, religious items and political posters so prospective buyers can envision their family in the house, not yours.
Stage the house to show how a family could live there
If you have odd rooms with no obvious role, give them one. An odd alcove off the kitchen could be staged as an office or a pantry, for example.
Make the property easy to show.
The more flexible you are about visits, the more people will be able to see your home. Be ready for prospective visitors early in the morning, at night and on weekends, with little notice.
Leave the property when the house is shown so the potential buyers can feel free to move around without feeling like intruders and discuss the home’s pros and cons honestly with their agent.
