Are you ready to put your home on the market? We’ve put together a simple checklist for you to follow which will give you the best chance to get moved in the timescale you want and for the price you need.

Choosing the right real estate agent when you’re selling your home is important. Look for an agent who is professional and someone you feel comfortable working with. It’s also a good idea to keep your agent accountable and stay engaged throughout the process. This can include mystery shopping them, calling them regularly, documenting feedback from every viewing, and dropping in unannounced to their office. Asking for your Rightmove Property Performance Report at least monthly can also help you stay informed about the marketing of your home and ensure that your agent is working effectively on your behalf.

Preparing your home properly is an important step when you’re selling your home. This includes making sure your home is clean, decluttered, and in good repair. It’s also a good idea to look for any outdated features or finishes that may turn off potential buyers, such as old carpeting in the bathroom or outdated kitchen countertops. If you’re not sure how to prepare your home, consider hiring a professional stylist or taking a professional approach to your property’s presentation. This can help make your home more appealing to potential buyers and increase your chances of a successful sale.



Having high-quality photographs is an important part of marketing your home. Take a critical and objective view of the images your real estate agent takes and compare them to the photographs of other well-marketed homes. Make sure your images showcase your home in the best possible light and are not just quick, basic shots. If you feel that your photographs are not up to par, consider asking your agent to re-take them or hiring a professional photographer to capture your home in a more appealing way. This can help attract potential buyers and increase your chances of a successful sale.



Having a well-written description of your home is an important part of marketing it effectively. The words you use should persuade a potential buyer that it’s worth their time and effort to view your home. A professional copywriter, who can create a description based on an interview with you, may be able to help you craft an effective description that captures the attention of potential buyers and holds their interest. Make sure your description accurately and compellingly conveys the key features and benefits of your home, and consider including specific details that may appeal to buyers, such as the layout of the home, any recent renovations or updates, and any unique or desirable features.

It’s important to choose the right asking price for your home when you put it on the market. You should consider the recommendations of your real estate agent, the precedent set by comparable properties in your area, and the price bands used by online property portals. It’s a good idea to listen to your agent’s advice and consider the data on comparable properties, as this can help you come up with a realistic and competitive asking price. You should also think about how your home asking price will fit in with online searches, as most property searches start on the internet. Choosing a rounded figure that fits in with the price bands used by online portals can help your home stand out to potential buyers.
