THE WORTH OF YOUR HOUSE
To find out how much your house is worth in today’s market, schedule a free home valuation with a local real estate professional. Check out the online Irish property price registry or visit local open houses of comparable properties to get a feel for the market.
Finding a suitable representation
Visit many real estate agents before committing to one to ensure you’re getting the best bargain possible. Don’t believe everything real estate agents say about your home’s value get multiple valuations.
PLEASE PREPARE YOUR PROPERTY
When considering a property’s “potential,” it’s important to bear in mind that most buyers would rather have a “blank canvas” than one that has previously been painted.
The process of decluttering and disposing of unwanted furniture might serve as an opportunity to do so. To make a strong first impression, your home needs “kerb appeal.” Renovations to the inside and exterior are included. Keep your lawn neat and tidy, and make sure your foyer is welcoming. Asking a friend for an objective assessment of your home’s appeal to potential buyers is another option.
Spending a lot of money on fixing up your home isn’t necessary, but you should give potential buyers the impression that the space is airy and bright.
MARKETING FOR INTERESTED PROPERTIES
In addition to their commissions, traditional real estate brokers could also charge you for newspaper ads. It’s lovely to see your house in paper, but you should consider if the added cost is warranted. More than ninety percent of people thinking about buying a property in Ireland start their hunt online. You may learn about local costs by visiting websites like daft.ie and myhome.ie. If you’re looking to sell your wares to customers all over the world, you need a global marketing firm.
If you’re selling a house, it’s important that your real estate agent provide you with high-quality photos.
SOLICITOR SELECTION IS REQUIRED
You should choose a solicitor as soon as possible so they can begin the conveyancing process of selling your house.
Real estate lawyers typically base their payment on a share of the property’s sale price.
ENERGY RATING (BER) CERTIFICATE
A Buildings Energy Rating (BER) certificate is necessary before you can legally sell your home.
The purpose of the BER is to provide potential buyers honest details regarding a home’s energy efficiency. A professional BER evaluator will inspect the home from top to bottom. A certificate is then issued by Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEI) to the evaluator.
In other words, have your house in selling condition before advertising it for sale. Try to work with potential buyers’ schedules as much as possible during showings.
CONSIDER ALL OFFERS WITH AN EYE TO NEGOTIATION
Try not to let your profits drop below break even if you can help it. The offer’s attractiveness hinges on its proximity to the asking price, the urgency with which you need to sell, and your tolerance for inconvenience. You may either accept an offer made by a buyer or keep waiting for one that is more favorable to you.
CONCUR TO PURCHASE
To signify your agreement to the purchase, the buyer will make a down payment. They will receive a full refund if they opt to cancel the agreement prior to its signing.
The purchaser often requests a structural survey at this time. Buyers who need a loan to pay for the purchase will also have an appraisal done.
EXCHANGE OF CONTRACTS
You can expect your lawyer to have you sign non-conditional contracts. This is signed by the buyer first, and then sent to your attorney to be countersigned. After that, the remaining 10% of the deposit is paid by the consumer.
SALE OF GOODS NOW FINISHED
At this stage, all parties have signed the necessary legal documents, and ownership has been officially transferred to the buyer.
Your solicitor will arrange a convenient completion date and receive the sale’s remaining monies on that day.
You should be proud of the speed with which you sold your Irish home.
