Truth be told, if done right, one can amass a lot of wealth in this industry.  If you are looking to buy or sell property, there are a lot of credible property management companies in Kenya with tropes of information and listings for potential buyers and sellers. 

Whether you are a seasoned home seller or a first-timer, here is a helpful list of things you need to do before listing your home on a real estate website in Kenya. 

Find a certified real estate company.

Selling a house can be a hectic and time-consuming activity, especially if it's the first time. Enlisting the services of a professional real estate company in Kenya is highly recommended for home sellers. When choosing a realtor, remember to ask about their experience, connections to potential buyers, and their marketing expertise. A good realtor will give you a proper plan to sell your house, as well as guarantee genuine buyers. 

Read about the local housing market. 

Doing some research before selling your home can be a game-changer in the real estate industry. Start by visiting real estate agencies in Kenya online and looking at the listed properties. This helps when it comes to putting a price on your home. Reputable realtors and property agents in Nairobi can offer expert assistance and guidelines on factors to consider when setting a price for your home. 

Deep clean your house.

Creating a good first impression is essential. Remember, you want to catch a potential buyer’s interest as soon as they step into your property.  Before putting your house for sale, give your home an intense clean. Make sure all nooks and crannies are sparkling clean and the lawns are well kept. Coincidentally, there are several property management companies in Kenya that offer cleaning services as part of the package. 

Invest in good photography 

Many potential buyers and people looking to rent will commence their searches on online platforms through real estate companies in Kenya. These platforms require images to showcase your property. If you have grainy or blurry photos, you'll be doing yourself a great disservice. Having good visuals will set your house apart in a rather flooded industry. It is advisable to get a professional photographer who has previous experience in photographing houses for sale in Nairobi.

Gather all necessary documents
