Question First time seller

Afternoon all.

I have put my house on the market for the first time last Tuesday (16th Feb).
We have a 2 (potentially 3 bedroom) mid-terraced property, with a new roof, new harling and fairly new windows & doors throughout.

We bought in 2008 for £110k, and have just had it valued at £115k.
It is on the market for offers over £110k.

We had a great start with a viewer coming the day after it was listed. They seemed to love the house, but haven't heard anything more. (I'm told that it may take longer to hear back as they are going through the Government Lift Scheme(?).

Since these viewers have been in we haven't heard a thing from anyone else.

I appreciate that it is still early days, but I'm just looking for advice / opinions on how long people have went between viewings, or how long it can take to sell etc.
I think we were hoping to have a bit more interest early on and are slightly disappointed / worried.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Jamie,

Hopefully you have now found a buyer.

Its difficult to say not knowing the market you are in. Where we are based viewings are thick and fast. Most properties selling inside a couple of weeks if the right price.

But in slower markets you may go a week or 2 without a viewing at all.

Best thing is speak to the agent, where have they advertised, have they called it out, why do they think viewings are slow?

If you need anything else just let us know

good luck!

It normally depends on their agent who is packed with further listings to get them viewed by the buyers, if he has plenty of them but definitely it takes time to get a feedback on each it including your property too.
