It can be an emotional and stressful time for sellers in Basildon who are moving for the first time in years. But there are many reasons why you may wish to sell your home after you’ve lived in it for a long time. For example, you may want to move closer to your family or downsize. However, it can be hard to take the plunge, and you may not know how to start the process. We are often asked to help “sell my Basildon home” by homeowners who have a huge emotional attachment to their homes, so the expert team at Roger Bates Properties (powered by Keller Williams ‘The World’s Largest Estate Agent’) has some tips to point you in the right direction.
Have The Principles Changed Since I Last Sold?
Although you may find the idea of selling up rather daunting, it’s important to remember that the principles haven’t changed since the last time you moved home. You still need to choose the best estate agent in Basildon to market and present your home well, ensure an appropriate asking price, and get an excellent conveyancing solicitor to work with you.

What Are Some Tips To Help Me Pack Up And Sell My Basildon Home
When you live in a house for any length of time, you accumulate a lot of items! It’s essential to have your home tidy and clean when prospective purchasers view it. Therefore, it makes sense to start removing any items you no longer want or need before listing your home for sale. At Roger Bates Properties (powered by Keller Williams ‘The World’s Largest Estate Agent’), we can advise you on how best to present your property in Basildon for sale.
How Do I Deal With My Emotions As I Sell My Basildon Home?
One element that may surprise you is how emotional your move may be. As you pack away your belongings and clear each room, you’ll find items with sentimental value and must decide what to do with them. Whenever possible, ask relatives or friends to help you with this process, and schedule some time every day to complete this task so you can overcome your emotions and feelings by the time your moving day arrives.
What if I Haven’t Found A Property in Basildon To Move To Yet?
We are often asked, “Can I sell my Basildon home if I haven’t found a new place to buy?” You may believe you can’t start the selling process if you haven’t found another home to move to; however, that isn’t the case. You could find it easier to secure another property once you’ve already sold your existing home since some sellers may not want to wait for your sale to go through.
There is a high demand for property in Basildon, so there’s never been a better time to list your home for sale. Should you make a quick sale, you’ll still have several months before the transaction is complete, during which time you can negotiate the terms under which you’re happy to leave your property. Keen buyers will mostly be prepared to wait.
