If the idea of selling your house is filling you with dread, then you’re not alone. According to a recent study published by Homeward Legal, selling a home is ‘the most stressful life experience’ that you are likely to go through.


The process, which tends to be drawn out, confusing, costly and full of complicated hurdles to overcome, is something that is a life necessity but can rarely be regarded as enjoyable or simple.


However, it needn’t all be worry and toil. There are some very simple things you can do that will help you sell property faster, and hopefully help you mitigate some moments of distress.


1. Keep the place tidy


We said they’d be simple, didn’t we? But you’d be amazed at the difference a tidy house can make. When people come to view a home, they want to be able to envisage the property when it is filled with their furniture and items. By keeping things neat, they will be better able to consider whether the house is suitable for them. To this end, you might even consider putting some of your things in storage while you are going through the selling process.


2. Jot down a list of what is required


Much of the stress associated with selling a house comes from not preparing properly. Make sure you are aware of every step of the process and work your way through your list methodically. When it comes to selling your house, there are no shortcuts. Rather, by being efficient, proactive and thorough, you will be able to sell your home quickly, and in a way, that benefits all parties.


3. Work with the right people


Again, it sounds simple enough, but working with the right people – be they estate agents, legal advisors or conveyancers – you can avoid stress, and have peace of mind knowing that you’ve hired people that have your best interests at heart. However, be aware that this doesn’t necessarily mean local is better – do your research, and be certain that previous sellers have enjoyed, or at the very least appreciated, their association with the professional in question.
