How much does it really cost to sell your property?
Selling your home is a huge, overwhelming task. There are many moving parts but for a lot of sellers, it’s often not clear just how many costs are involved.
Get your exclusive guide on the upfront costs you need to be aware of when selling your property:
Know what to expect
While your property may have grown in value, putting you in line for a healthy profit, the process of selling it is a costly one.
There are a number of upfront costs and fees that will need to be paid before the funds from your sale are available. Whether you’re a first time home seller or you’ve taken the plunge before, it’s crucial to budget appropriately so that you’re not left paying out of pocket.
Spending money to make money
From agent commissions to auctioneer’s fees, conveyancing, staging and more, it all adds up. Many people underestimate how much it costs to advertise a property, or don’t realise that the vendor is expected to pay this cost. And when things are broken or tatty (even little things), it can have a big – and negative – impact on potential buyers.
