Estate agency has changed dramatically over the last 20 years or so and this is mainly down to the internet and more recently Covid-19. As technology has evolved, estate agency has had to adapt. There was a time when searching for a property would involve a trip to the local town centre and traipsing round all the Agents collecting brochures and 'registering' which would take time and a lot of patience as you would have to sit answering the same questions over and over.
With the advance of websites such as Rightmove and Zoopla, the internet is the "Go to" place for house hunting. The general public can now view homes from the comfort of their front room without needing the interaction with an estate agent. As expected, most people will make a decision to view a home based on what they see and read online which is why it is vital that your home stands out from its competitors.
Preparing your home for a successful sale is about two things. First, getting the price right and secondly, getting the marketing right.
It's worth putting some effort into the presentation of your home. Mostly it's obvious, clearing clutter and anything that looks out of place or untidy. If you feel the property is dated, don't panic. There's rarely a need to replace a kitchen or bathroom and even if you do go to that expense it could be that the buyer isn't that keen and ends up ripping it out the day after completion!
