Useful info if you want to sell a house in Venice

Do you want to sell a house in Venice but you don't know how to take your first steps? Contact your real estate agency, but first here's some useful info

Previously we took care to shed light on the prices of the houses for sale Venice by discovering where it is possible to find interesting real estate opportunities. This time, however, we speak to those who own a house in the Serenissima who intend to sell, with the prospect of buying a new one in a different area or, perhaps, driven by the prospect of an imminent move to another city.

Here is some useful information for those who are thinking of selling a house and some advice to drastically reduce time.


High costs do not discourage sales. To prove it, the data published by the Sole 24 Ore according to which the most requested houses for sale Venice concern the areas of Dorsoduro (in particular the Grand Canal, Salute-Accademia and Santa Margherita), Santa Croce, Cannaregio (Sant'Alvise and Santi districts Apostoli), San Marco (districts of Santo Stefano, Mercerie and Fenice), Castello (districts of Santa Maria Formosa, Santi Giovanni e Paolo and Arsenale) and San Polo.

For anyone thinking of selling a house in Venice in one of these areas, the deal could therefore be insured.

The next question is almost obvious: how long does it take to sell a house in Venice ? It is difficult to establish it with certainty, because there are many variations that can influence the timing. Generally, however, average times are around half a year.


In other words, relatively long times, which risk extending further if you don't know the secrets to highlight even the smallest qualities of your home.

Let's find out some little tricks to quickly sell a house.

CLEANING: remember this, the first impression is what counts. Before organizing appointments with potential buyers, clean your house from top to bottom.

REPAIRS: a clean house will not be enough to hide the most evident imperfections (falling bolt, broken windows, peeling walls). Better to intervene before being misjudged.

DEPERSONALIZED ENVIRONMENT: try to make the potential buyer feel at home right from his first entry into the house and you will have him in hand. Green light to a neutral and impersonal style, but always in good taste.

WELCOME: to make your guest feel immediately at ease, focus everything on the welcome: warm up the room, place a few pots of fresh flowers on the table at the entrance and equip yourself with your best smile.

Victory will be assured!
