When selling your home, you want to get the best price... obvious right? But, the best price can mean different things to different people. It can depend on whether you are in a chain, if you want a cash buyer or how quickly you need to sell. One of the biggest issues vendors face, is setting a price that is too high. This will lead to a property that just stays on the market.

There are many factors which affect a house price but some of the key aspects are location, current listing prices and recent sale history. Do your research!! Check out property portals like KentMove, Zoopla, Rightmove, on the market and sites like HM Land Registry. These will offer a great indication of the market trends in Kent.

Another method is to speak to 2 or 3 estate agents. Use their expertise and experience and see what they think is the ideal asking price. Find out why they think this and what the market conditions are like. Once you have spoken to few agents, settle on the average.

Also, take into consideration your property. Compare your home to others in your area. Think about things like number of beds, size, condition and location, to name but a few.

A balance and realistic approach is essential!! Happy Selling!
