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.

Getting an agent on your side

What Our Customers Say...

Great service!! Shireen and Catherine were brilliant and very supportive during what can be a very stressful time. Polite, knowledgeable, friendly and always working hard to ensure our house sale and move went as smoothly as it could. I cannot praise them enough. I would highly recommend Richard Kendall if you are moving house. Claire 26/04/2024
My agent for the sale was Elizabeth Cooke. She was absolutely fantastic. Her enthusiasm for what she does shines through and it's a pleasure to deal with her. Would thoroughly recommend Elizabeth to anyone buying or selling. William 26/04/2024
Richard Kendall’s were the estate agents of the property we were purchasing and they were great. Lucy in particular has been amazing and has been brilliant at chasing things up and keeping everything moving. Thank you so much! Beth 26/04/2024
Fabulous service from start to finish! The valuation provided by David was very thorough and informative, and from that point the secretaries (Kirsty and Sophie) made sure the house was on the market quickly. Karen looked after my property and from her first vendor contact call she kept me updated the whole time, she provided me with suggestions on how best to market and sell the property and thanks to this within the month my property went from not on the market to sstc. The sales process can be a stressful life event but with the kindness and compassion shown by Karen, and the Wakefield office this sale has been made easy. Simone 26/04/2024
Selling my home was the biggest and most significant transaction in my life, who to trust? A good friend recommended Richard Kendal as a reliable and professional company, this was entirely validated through the excellent service I experienced from their Pontefract branch. Amanda Dyson who coordinated the presentation and sale of my home, kept me well informed with information and updates throughout the process, being reassuring and professional at all times. Viewings came quickly and in less than two months a sale was agreed, completion also following in good time. My thanks to everyone at Richard Kendal whose services I totally recommend. John 26/04/2024
I had a brilliant experience with Richard Kendall, both buying a property and selling. The communication was excellent, Donna Leeson was fantastic and always kept me up to date. Will definitely recommend Richard Kendall, thanks again! Abby 26/04/2024
I found my experience very professional and easy to deal with and they sorted everything out that met my expectations !!! Shane 26/04/2024
This is now the second house that I have sold via Richard Kendall and to be quite honest I wouldn't consider using anyone else. Yes there are cheaper agents around that make you pay upfront, take all your own photos, arrange your own viewings etc but in my experience moving house is stressful enough without having to do all that as well. With Richard Kendall you can be confident that they are doing their upmost everyday to market your property via there many different media platforms to get you those viewings. The beauty is that they don't charge until completion either so you know it's in their interest to do everything they can to make that sale. Always professional, quick to respond and pleasant to deal with. I highly recommend them to anyone. Amanda and all of the team at the Normanton office were brilliant! I don't plan on moving anywhere else just yet but if I do I will be straight on to Richard Kendall once again. Thanks guys. Neil 26/04/2024
Karen Marijewko has been great throughout the experience! Very straightforward and to the point in a lovely polite manor which made things very efficient. Always quick to respond and deal with any issues that came up. Really glad we had Karen to guide us through the process. Ryan 26/04/2024
