If you’re selling up, it’s important to make your home stand out from the crowd of online listings. Here are our top tips to help:

Good photography – Bright, professional photographs that capture the space in natural light will make a better impression than quick snaps taken on your phone. Include photos of features in high demand such as gardens and office space. 

Accurate pricing – No matter how beautifully your home is presented, if it’s overpriced, it’s unlikely to get the attention it deserves. In fact, a Rightmove1 study showed that pricing correctly can double your chance of getting a sale.

Keywords – Most property sites allow you to attach keywords to your listing to help the right buyers find it. Be sure to include keywords for features you would like to promote, such as a high-spec kitchen.
