Get it valued

Before you decide to part with any property assets, it’s vital that you do your due diligence to establish what they could be worth. One way to do this is to look online at similar properties in the area and see how much they are going for.

Getting 2 or 3 valuations from experienced real estate agents can help a lot here as well. The reason being that they will be in the best position to judge how the market is currently moving. It’s important to get more than one valuation too, as there is often a significant difference between valuations. Indeed, the more you get, the more accurate a picture of the true value of your property you can build up, something that will stand you in good stead for when it comes time to put your asset on the market.

Find a great realtor

Another reason why it makes sense to work with more than one realtor to get property valuations is that it will provide you with an opportunity to test? Then, see which one you would work best with. Indeed, choosing a realtor that is not only adept at the selling side of things but also is punctual with meetings and when completing paperwork can make all the difference here.

It can be particularly helpful to choose a realtor that has previous experience with the type of investment properties you are looking to sell. That means finding a commercial property specialist if you have a shop, warehouse, or office building to sell.

Get some amazing photos taken

The good news is that once you have picked a real estate agent to work with, they will do a great deal of the heavy lifting for you. Indeed, they will take down all the details of the property to create an appealing listing to show to potential buyers.

Of course, one of the most important parts of any property listing is the images that go along with it. However, taking the photos yourself may not be the best course of action, the reason being that aerial photography needed to represent the property you have for sale in the best light can be particularly tricky. Instead, it’s best to opt for an expert that understands how various factors such as light, and the angle of the shot can make all the difference to how appealing it looks to potential buyers.

Consider your tenants

Last, of all, it’s pretty common for investment properties to be leased out to tenants, residential or commercial. Now, many people assume that to sell their property, they must inform the tenants that they are ending their lease.

However, it is also possible to sell a property with the tenants in situ and write into the contract that their agreement will be honored. Indeed, many buyers will prefer this because it means they will have a guaranteed income stream from the moment they take possession of the property, so be sure to explore this option before you sell.
