Ready to Make the Big Home Move? A Pre-Sale Checklist

Autumn is here, schools have started and the selling and buying property season is ramping up ahead of (could we say it?) Christmas. If you have a move up the property ladder in mind, this is a very good moment to turn your plans into reality. Glasgow’s property market is very much a seller’s market, with many buyers still trying to find that perfect home. We have prepared a quick list you need to check to make sure you are ready to put your home on the market.

Know how much your home is worth?

Speak to an experienced agent – like us! – to figure out how much your home is currently worth! We’ll provide a free and accurate, current valuation so you can plan your move with realistic expectations.

Do you have a list of professionals to help?

You might need financial advice, a solicitor or help with the actual move. We constantly seek and vet tradesmen and various professionals linked to the property market so we can help you get the best professionals for the jobs.

Understand the marketing strategy for your property. 

At Vanilla Square we are a small team but that means you are never passed down the ranks when you put your home on the market. At Vanilla Square you will always chat with one of our directors. So we will discuss our plan in detail with you, so you know exactly what is going to happen, when and most importantly why.

Prepare your home for viewings!

It has probably been said too many times, but first impressions do count especially in the property industry. Some buyers spend less time deciding on a home than they spend on buying a sofa and so sellers must invest a bit of time and effort to make that right first impression.  But if time is an issue or you feel like it is too big a job to take on, do not worry. Just ask us about our Dress for Sale service!

Start looking for your dream home and let us do the hard work for you.

We know looking for a new home is stressful enough in today’s competitive market so the entire Vanilla Square will work hard to sell your home in the best possible conditions so you can make the best move forward.

At Vanilla Square we mean it when we say we are here every step of the way and part of our bespoke service is to ensure your move to your next home goes as smoothly as possible, right up until you settle into your brand new home.
