Top Tips for selling your Property with a Baby
The Royal Baby has finally arrived and is settling into the royal nursery nicely! William and Kate are fortunate that they are unlikely to face the problem of running out of space as their family grows, but many families have the problem of needing to sell their property to accommodate a growing family, with the added time pressure of needing to sell before the baby arrives.
Trying to sell a property with a baby in the house can be a daunting prospect for any parents; it is incredibly difficult to keep a house in viewing condition when there are toys, nappies, and bottles everywhere!
However, it isn’t impossible to sell with a baby in the house – here are our top tips for selling your property quickly:
- Your estate agent should get a feel for what potential buyers that view the property are looking for. It might be that having a baby in the property is the perfect selling point for a couple who will be thinking about starting a family, but possibly not for a young professional who is looking for a bachelor pad! Remember, potential buyers need to be able to visualize themselves living in the property if you want to have any hope of selling the property.
- If possible, drop the baby off with a babysitter before viewings. This will give you a chance to clear away any baby-related clutter – even if you do not have space for putting it all away in the house you do not want potential buyers to see this; the boot of your car or a garden shed can hide a multitude of sins! A baby-free house will also mean that the viewing will not be disturbed by your baby crying; even the best-behaved babies are prone to having tantrums at the most inopportune moments! You do not want any potential buyers to walk away with their only memory of your property being of noise and clutter.
- Neutralise the nursery. If you have a bold theme in the nursery, it is wise to neutralise this before putting the property on the market. Potential buyers may not have the same tastes as you and particularly in the current market, they are usually looking for a property that they can move straight into without any work involved. Covering up a bright jungle mural will take many coats of paint and act as a deterrent for potential buyers, so do this before putting the property on the market and you are likely to receive offers much more quickly.
Selling your property can be one of the most stressful things you will do in your lifetime if you add to this the stress of looking after a baby it can push you to almost breaking point. If you haven’t got the time, or just don’t want the hassle of having viewings at your property, then there are other routes you can consider. Property auctions offer a hassle free way of selling the property, as successful buyers are bound into the sale and must complete within a certain timescale, but there is no guarantee that you will get a buyer that way.
