      Potential buyers may make decisions in a fraction of a second whether to look further at your property details.

      Here are a few things to think about:-

      1. Photography - including the all important internal photographs - how do we compare?

      1. Office position and window displays - will your property be in the window?

      1. Internet coverage - is it just Rightmove or a wider range of property portals?

      1. Newspaper adverts - what is the quality, what is the frequency, what are the publications -will your property be in the paper every week?

      1. Accompanied viewings - will every viewing be accompanied by the agent?

      We like to think at Platinum Properties we do a little more than the competition to sell your home. (We probably do a lot more - but we will let you decide )
