How much storage space is there?

Your home’s storage solutions could be a hot topic for buyers, especially if your demographic consists of first-time buyers or young families leaving behind the confines of rented accommodation. Having your home professionally staged to showcase its space-saving features is a great way to prepare your home for this question.

How long has the house been on the market for?

Prospective buyers may ask how long your home has been on the market, but this shouldn’t be viewed as an attempt to catch you out. Finding out how long the home has been listed for sale might help the buyer gauge whether they need to act urgently. If the listing is new, this might encourage them to place their offer right away before another buyer comes in.

What’s the area like?

Committing to a home also means committing to new surroundings and a different community. Having an agent who is well-versed in the dynamics, conveniences and amenities of the local area is paramount in attracting the right buyer.

Is the property freehold or leasehold?

The property’s tenure largely dictates its future resale value, so this is an important question for buyers to ask. If your property is freehold, your agent will be able to utilise this as a key selling point. If there is a shorter lease attached to the home, you may consider extending it to attract a buyer and a higher sales price. However, if you don’t plan on extending your short lease, your agent will know which demographic to market to, such as buy-to-let investors.

What is included in the sale?

Certain fixtures and fittings may attract buyers to your home, so it’s important to clearly outline everything that is included in the sale price so that there is no room for confusion. Buyers may also be willing to offer a higher price to have certain fittings included in the sale, which leaves you in a strong position to negotiate.

Have any major renovations been made?

Finding out if any major reconstruction work has taken place allows the buyer to fully understand the property’s condition and value. As a seller, you will need to provide legal documents relating to any major work completed on the home, so it’s important to be prepared for this question from the offset.

Do you have planning permission?

Planning permission is a highly attractive feature for many buyers and applying for planning permission to add an extension or an extensive remodel only costs around £170 depending on your location. This is a small price to pay when you can add thousands to the value of your home if your application is granted.

What is the energy rating of the property?

The energy rating of a property is crucial to assessing the potential long-term costs of maintaining a comfortable living environment. When preparing your home for a sale, your agent will advise you on any areas of improvement which might help bump up your EPC rating.

What Our Customers Say...

Selling my house through Richard Kendall was a great move. Amanda at the Pontefract office was there for me every step of the way. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to handle my sale. She did a fantastic job with the communication between me and the buyer and always pushed the solicitors for updates. My sale wasn’t as straight forward as any of us had hoped but Amanda didn’t let that phase her. Her professional and friendly support continued though-out the whole process. I’d highly recommend Richard Kendall. Laura 10/06/2024
Joanne and Donna was amazing from start to finish if any enquiries I had and they both kept me up date with the process anytime something changed, would highly recommend these two if your buying through Richard Kendall. Jack 10/06/2024
A very smooth experience from valuation to completion with advice given to achieve the best price. I was kept informed at every stage of the very smooth process by Shereen and Kathryn Graham 10/06/2024
I sold my house and purchased a new one through Richard Kendall between Jan and May this year. The service was very good on both sides, but I must compliment Mandy, who managed my purchase. Throughout the whole process, which had its tricky moments, Mandy was polite, professional and - perhaps most importantly for me - a source of constant positivity and calm reassurance. She was communicative, proactive and provided a fantastic bridge to the vendor. Thank you Mandy, you are a star! Rachel 10/06/2024
It’s been a first time experienced for myself in the rental of a new place via Richard Kendall’s at a local branch at Horbury in Wakefield, which was quite a process due to all the checks required by a third party. Jessica Judd who I dealt with was very professional, polite, efficient, friendly and helpful during this process. I was really pleased that Jessica also pushed to get everything into place before I went away on holiday, taking away any anxiety about having a property to move into on my return to the UK. Jessica is a real credit to her company and would definitely use the services of Richard Kendall again in the future. Dean 10/06/2024

We recently sold our family property and Suzy was amazing from start to finish! She really helped eliminate the stress of selling by keeping us updated throughout the whole process.
