Useful Tips To Make Selling Your House Easy And Stress-Free

Are you planning to sell your commercial or residential house? The process of selling one can be stressful, especially if you are a new seller. It involves a lot of planning and other details which you need to be aware of.

Understanding how to present your house and the whole selling process will make selling your home easy, fast, and stress-free. Also, following the proper procedures will significantly determine your home’s selling price. Here are some valuable tips to consider when selling a house.

Understand the selling steps and processes

Before putting your house for sale, you have to understand the selling steps and processes. This is so important if it’s your first time and don’t want to make any mistakes. Some of the things you need to understand include:

  • The costs involved, including government levies and real estate fees
  • Professionals to engage in selling your house. These include estate agents, solicitors, and conveyors
  • Sales and listing agreements
  • The best time to sell your property
  • Your home’s worth and the best price to sell it
  • The settlement process and what to expect during the sale
  • Options to consider, e.g., sale via auction, private sale, etc.

Find the right real estate agent

You can quickly sell your house without stress by contracting a reliable real estate agent in the selling process. While most sellers do not prioritise looking for agents, it’s one of the best things to do, especially selling your house in a highly competitive market. Real estate agents have adequate experience and knowledge of finding the right clients and help with the property transfer process once you sell the house. Besides knowing the product and procedures in the market, agents have marketing and sales skills, which will help sell your home fast. A property is a considerable asset which you should not gamble with. It would be best to find a reliable agent who will cater to your needs and buyer.

Style your home for sale

You will want your house to be attractive to the potential buyer. While your house might not be that old, you will have to style it enough to attract buyers on the market. With property styling, you contract a home stylist or a home stager to customise your house to make it more saleable. They will specialise in minimising the unsalable parts while maximising the best aspects of your property to make it competitive in the market. A styled property sells higher than an ordinary one. If you install solar panels to power your house, you, or your buyer, could be eligible for tax credits. Saving some extra money in the long run, and raising the appeal of the house even more.

Get prepared for inspections and open homes

When marketing your house, you should also prepare for potential buyers who will come to view or inspect your home. This is an essential process and will require you to declutter the house to make it more presentable. When doing so, you have to create a checklist of things to do and what to show your potential buyers when they check in. Ensure that everything checks for the buyer to make an easy sale.

Besides observing all the above tips and others more, you have to stay positive throughout the selling process. Properties can take one to six months or even longer to sell, depending on the demand in the market.

The Park Hyatt brand celebrates debut of Park Hyatt Kyoto

Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced today the opening of Park Hyatt Kyoto. Set in the heart of this noble city with centuries of history and heritage, Park Hyatt Kyoto unfolds a journey of discovery with enriching, sophisticated and rare experiences.

Park Hyatt Kyoto is located in one of the city’s best-preserved historic districts, Higashiyama hills. The region, known as the birthplace of traditions such as the Japanese tea ceremony, the Ikebana flower arrangement and Japanese Zen gardens, will offer a rich foundation for the hotel. Park Hyatt Kyoto embodies the quintessential Japanese guesthouse, offering a serene Higashiyama hillside retreat for discerning global travelers and local residents. The hotel is next to Kodai-ji temple and within walking distance to many of Kyoto’s UNESCO World Heritage sites, including Kiyomizu-dera temple, and offers sweeping views of the city and Yasaka Pagoda. Park Hyatt Kyoto is located less than one mile (1.5 kilometers) from the Kyoto train station, which connects travelers to Tokyo in just over two hours via the Nozomi Shinkansen bullet train.

“We are delighted to celebrate the opening of Park Hyatt Kyoto, the second Park Hyatt hotel in Japan in 25 years, and to offer guests a refined home-away-from-home in this remarkable city,” said David Udell, group president, Asia Pacific, Hyatt. “We are grateful to the hotel’s owners, Kyoyamato and Takenaka Corporation, for their trust, support and deep understanding of luxury hospitality. Park Hyatt Kyoto is a celebration of Japanese harmony and tranquillity and we look forward to seeing guests immerse themselves in the city’s inspiring heritage and culture.”

Located within the same grounds as Park Hyatt Kyoto, guests can find a historic garden with steps leading to Kyoyamato, a traditional ryotei and culinary institution which opened in 1877 and serves authentic, seasonally inspired Kaiseki cuisine. Kyoyamato, one of the hotel’s owners, is a seven-generation, family-run business and consists of several historic buildings including “Soyotei,” a teahouse from the Edo era with a private room where feudal warlords once secretly met. Its storied gardens and traditional houses complement the hotel’s modern interpretation of classical Japanese architecture and intimate hospitality.

“We are excited to introduce the Park Hyatt brand of personal and exceptional hospitality in a special place like Kyoto and look forward to unlocking the unique character of Japan’s ancient capital of high arts and craft,” said Mark de Leeuwerk, general manager, Park Hyatt Kyoto. “It has been a privilege for us to work closely with our neighbours in Higashiyama as well as the artisans and craftsmen of this beautiful city.”
