How our DIY House Selling Kit can help you

Lawpack's Sell Your Own Home Kit is packed with hints and tips to help you sell your own home.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

Estate agent or private sale?

The makeover

Does your house have 'kerb appeal'? Which rooms should you concentrate on? Is it worth putting in a new kitchen? Should you spend money on the garden before you sell? Find out more about property makeovers that really work.

Property particulars and floorplan

How should you describe your house to buyers? Should you include photographs - inside and out? What should you say, and what should you definitely not say? Are there any legal issues - what about the Property Misdescriptions Act?

Our property particulars section shows you how to write clear and accurate property particulars. The Sell Your Own Home Kit gives you drafts of standard templates, and a trial of one of the leading floorplan software programs, so you can create a professional diagram of your home.

'For Sale' board

If you have decided on a private sale, you will need a For Sale sign. A For Sale board outside your home is the best way to attract attention when you're selling your own home. Lawpack can produce you a professional For Sale board for just £35 with your own phone number on it. Find out more about our For Sale board.

Internet advertising

If you want to reach a large number of buyers who are looking right now, the internet is just as important as the local press. Last year, over two million property buyers started their search online.
