4 tips for selling with Glasgow West End Estate Agents

While demand continues to outstrip supply in the West End, you’ll receive more interest if you sell during the Spring.
Most home-movers start looking for properties in March, April, and May. You can expect increased competition between buyers at this time, giving you the best chance of sealing a profitable deal. Plus, the nicer weather makes spring a great time of year to put your West End property on the market.

Find local estate agents with a proven track record of selling properties like yours in the West End. Invite your shortlisted estate agents to the property to conduct a valuation and discuss how they’d market it effectively.
A good estate agent will market your property via a range of methods, from advertising it on websites such as Rightmove and Zoopla to email marketing and social media.
3. Identify potential buyers
The key to preparing, marketing and selling your property is understanding your potential buyers. The best strategy is to keep the widest pool of buyers in mind, since the more potential buyers you have, the more likely you are to receive offers. Fortunately, as one of Glasgow’s favourite residential areas, property in the West End is constantly sought after by students, young professionals, and families alike.
