Every prospective property seller has his own combination of doubts
and fears: Is my property saleable? Will it fetch more than the purchase price?
Does it have any standing in the market? Does it live up to all the latest
Property traders and experts swear that such apprehensions are
completely normal. In fact, keeping oneself on his toes before the sale of
property may actually ensure that the seller is extremely vigilant about each
step of the trade.
The best way to stay ahead of the game is to have a roundabout,
complete knowledge of the kind of market you are about to enter. Basically it
entails acquiring a firm knowledge of the current real estate prices, the
latest housing norms, market scenario, etc.
Know the rates:
People trading in property commercially, more often than not, seek
professional advice from real estate consultants and advisors. But that is not
a sound advice for just businessmen. Even individual property owner can seek
advice from consulting bodies, and we cannot advocate this point strongly enough.
Consultants are opportunity seekers, almost decision makers who are paid to have
knowledge and foresight and suggest the best course of action so as to fetch
maximum returns for you.
Talk to people:
People who may have sold property recently often have interesting
and surprisingly insightful experiences regarding the market situation. If you
want to sell your property online it is always good to have different
perspectives when it comes to making decisions. However, sellers should bear in
mind the differences in the advice of people who have sold or purchased
property recently as opposed to those who may have done the same many years
before. This is because market situations, especially that of land and
property, are never the same.
Check out as many related websites, national
and local, as possible:
It is always advisable to have some ground knowledge before
approaching other people. Websites, due to the absence of any deliberate
filters, can give you an unbiased catalogue of each and every interested party.
Check out the competition:
Do not limit yourself to just purchasing or just selling. If you are
in the game, then identify your competitors, compare your expectations and
offer with theirs, and evaluate your standing in the market.
Find out the USP of your property:
Nowadays, every product that needs to be sold has to come with an
elevator pitch, something that sets it apart, and doesn't need more than an
elevator ride to clarify. The same goes for property trading. You as the seller
have to identify the USP of your property, what is it that sets it apart from others, it can be a central location, extra closet
space, parking space, garden space, or whatever. The USP of your property then
becomes the first selling point of your property.
Knowledge today is money tomorrow. To ensure maximum returns on your
investment, all you need is a thorough understanding of that very investment.
When you set out to do the task after due diligence, you will see the task
become much simpler and smoother than you had thought it to be.
