Selling Guide overview

For those looking to sell their home

The Selling Guide is part of the Home Guides suite, and supports those who are looking to sell their home, either for the first time or as a seasoned seller! With information to consider before you sell, including where to begin and preparing to sell, this guide takes readers through all of the legal and financial steps, through to selling and moving out.

This guide can be read onscreen or downloaded for future use. Our detailed word glossary will help make sense of the home selling jargon, and check out our comprehensive list of useful contacts to support you in this process.

If you are also buying a new home, you may want to check out our Home Buyers' Guide as well.
