When your property is for sale in Peterborough there are a number of things you need to prepare and organise to ensure a smooth and fast transaction. Here at Letters Group we have a team of professional and caring estate agents. We know all the best property tricks and tips to ensure a smooth sale and we would like to share these with you, as they will help when selling your home in Peterborough.

1. Finances

Arguably the most important step in selling your home in Peterborough is making sure your finances are in order. You need to check your existing mortgage, how much is left outstanding and any penalties you may face by selling your home. 

If you are planning to sell your home to buy another speak to your mortgage broker, or our team. We can make sure you can get the right mortgage for your new home. 

It’s a good idea to put your house on the market before putting in an offer on a new home. This gives you a chance to check out the market speed and the properties about. You will also feel a lot less stressed if you have an offer through the door before making one on your next home.

2. Make Important Decision Early On

When selling your home in Peterborough you need to make some important decisions early on. For example, you need to think about the lowest selling price you want for your home. Think about your furnishings too, will you take them with you, or include them in the sale of the house? 

By making these decisions before you start you will feel more in control and you will have less to worry about later down the line. Make a list of decisions you need to make and go through them one by one with your partner or family. Make sure you are happy with the decisions before you put your property on the market.

3. Declutter

First impressions count when it comes to selling your home in Peterborough. It is essential that your home looks its best in all photos taken by the estate agents. We would recommend that you declutter your home to make rooms look bigger and more spacious.

Decluttering will also help with the move as you will have fewer things to take to your new home.

4. Paperwork

Paperwork is never very exciting to a lot of people, but it is really important that you get your paperwork in order. There may be times when you need a certain document on a very tight deadline and you can’t find it for love nor money. If you have been given an offer for your home that you can’t afford to miss, you will need to ensure your paperwork is to hand and organised.

Avoid that last minute panic by preparing a folder of all your mortgage documents, solicitor letters, energy efficiency certificates, plumbing certificates, boiler inspections and more. By having these organised and to hand, you will enjoy a much smoother transaction when selling your home in Peterborough.
