Trying to sell your property can be a tumultuous experience. The initial excitement of having the photoshoot and greeting your first viewers can quickly wane and leave you feeling a little bereft if there are no offers early on.

If you've been trying to sell your home for several months, now could be the perfect time to refresh and reboot your sale if you are beginning to lose faith. A new approach and outlook to the property and its marketing could be the way to get a buyer for your home sooner rather than later.

There are so many elements to achieving a sale of a property. The magic is often found in the database of estate agents. If you've been on the market for a while, the agent will most likely have exhausted their database. All applicants they have listed will have already seen your property, so the only way to generate interest in the property now will be to reduce the price. All applicants who have already seen your property can now be told that the price has changed. Hopefully, they can be persuaded to take another look. 

Unfortunately, newer instructions will be of more interest as these will take priority in the mailouts, and the property websites only promote new properties or prices. So, if you don't reduce the price, you are relying on the hope that applicants and property searchers will continue scrolling to look past the more recent properties and find yours.

Price reductions and hoping that applicants find you. It doesn't sound very proactive, does it? And a price reduction is quite literally taking money out of your pocket, so it should be seen as a last resort unless there is evidence that the market has changed and your property price is no longer correct.

Perhaps, instead, it is time to consider a different approach? A fresh pair of eyes from a new agent?

By Design agents are uniquely positioned because they work together across the country. All offices have a linked-up database that can market properties anywhere to applicants looking for a property like yours. Location is not always a deciding or limiting factor in a property search, so it makes sense that this is not restricting potential buyers from seeing your property. 

There is every chance that your property just needs a little more exposure rather than a new price. 

By changing agents, you can take advantage of the By Design unique method of marketing homes, using artificial intelligence and innovative technology to pinpoint the exact buyer for your property. Take the guesswork out of the process and harness the technology available to improve your experience as a property seller.

And it doesn't have to be a complicated process. We often feel that, because we have signed a contract we are committed to, this is our lot, and we should just put up and get on with it. The perceived potential stress is enough to make us think that changing will be a problem. It's why we rarely switch bank accounts, no matter how terrible their service or interest rates are. It feels like a considerable challenge to switch. 

But changing agents is actually surprisingly easy. Simply give your current agents notice and your new agents the instruction. A transition period will provide your By Design agent time to prepare the marketing materials and put everything together and ready for a relaunch. 

With a plan of action, a strategic marketing campaign, expert advice and innovative technology, you can be confident that By Design will be able to sell your home.
