What to remember about when selling your property on your own?

If you want to try to sell your apartment or villa in Alanya by yourself , remember about some important points:

  • Worth of the property – the first step to make your property ready for selling is to estimate its worth. Generally, the valuation of the property should be made through the expert’s judgment. According to the chosen property value estimation method, they will estimate how much the apartment is worth. You can assess the value on your own through analyzing similar property offers. Nevertheless you have to take into consideration the fact that these prices aren’t actual transaction prices. Most advertisements shows a bit higher prices than the transaction ones. Sensibility when choosing the price for your offer is essential, because if it is inflated, the advertisement will be presented  for a long time and nobody will become interested in it. The over-valuated offers are available on advertising websites for months even years. A price set too high, scares potential customers off and prolongs the time of selling the apartment. The phrase “the price is negotiable” used in your advertisement, will help you find customers interested in your offer faster, but setting the accurate price is even better way to do so.
  • Appearance of the apartment – getting the apartment ready for sale also includes improvements in its general appearance. Aesthetic qualities are very important for the purchasers. You have to highlight the virtues and present them in the favorable light. The impression your apartment makes on the buyer is one of the factors that increase the worth of the property and can affect the time in which you will sell it. This it the main reason why you should mend everything that needs to be fixed, remove all the unnecessary items, hide the private things, thoroughly clean the apartment and make sure it smells nice inside.
  • Advertising – promoting the offer is important if you want to sell it quickly. You need to apply all the possible methods of advertising – social media, real estate portals, and hang a sale notice banners.
  • Formalities – I know that this is the part that nobody wants to think about, until the last moment, but I think it is a mistake. All of these should be ready, even before finding the buyer, so when finally somebody makes an offer, you both do not need to wait for any missing papers.
