How To Sell Your Home When Your Neighbour Is Doing The Same

You’re ready to put your home on the property market. There’s just one problem: your neighbours — the ones with the house similar to yours — have just put their house on the market too. How might you make your property the most desirable of the two homes whilst still keeping on good terms with the neighbours? Here are a few quick strategies to help you sell your house before they do. 
Make sure your house is priced correctly from the go.
When selling your home at the same time as your neighbour, it may be tempting to offer the lower price. Whilst this may, in some cases, lead to a quicker sale, it’s actually hurting your overall return and could even make your property look inferior to your neighbours. The best way to handle pricing is to make sure your home is priced correctly from the start. Get a proper in-person valuation to determine the exact worth of your home. Don’t be discouraged by whatever price the neighbours have set for their home; instead, make sure your home is priced for every pound it’s worth. 
Find a reputable agent to help you sell your home.
Enlisting the help of a professional estate agent can mean all the difference when trying to sell your home at the same time as your neighbours. Having an additional set of hands — often from more than one individual — to help guide you through the marketing and sales process will only be beneficial to your own home sell. Traditional estate agents can be costly and often tack on large commission fees. But the online estate agents at Doorsteps are different. We offer the cheapest estate agent fees available today.
