    Selling Your Home in Autumn?
    image cannot be displayed
    What You Need To Know to be in your New Home by Christmas

    Autumn is such a lovely time of year. The leaves on the trees are turning golden and red, and homes feel so much cosier.

    Lots of people who have their homes on the market in Autumn want to be in their new place by Christmas, so it can be a really good time to sell.

    With that in mind, we have some suggestions to help you have the best possible chance of selling in the timescale you would prefer, at the price you need:

    Make sure your home looks at its Autumnal best for photography and viewings:

    • Keep your garden free of leaves and branches, and make sure your lawn is getting cut regularly if it needs it.

    • Clean out your hanging baskets and plant pots to remove any dead and unsightly plants. Replant with lovely Autumnal flowering plants like Michalmas daisy and Goldsturm Coneflowers, so that your home looks attractive from the first moment your viewers see it.

    • Moving inside, it's time to get cosy. Light fires, switch lamps on and make sure your outside lights are on when your viewers arrive
    • Bed linen looks warm and welcoming accessorised with throws and cushions in rich, textured fabrics. Choose autumnal hues for an added essence of opulence.
    • Style your home with accessories that complement the season: church candles, russet apples in bowls, and room diffusers with a hint of cinnamon and spice.
    • Fill your vases with beautiful autumnal bouquets that will fill your home with colour as well as the scents of the season.
  • paragraph

    Put your home on the market for a price that will sell well:

    Comparable properties - what else could someone buy for the price you think your home is worth? How does yours compare? Will it compete well? Comparing your home with those around you on the market is what a potential buyer will do. By making sure your home is competitively priced, you'll ensure that it's on a buyer's shortlist, and keep interest high from the outset.

    • Sold Prices - looking at precedent, in other words, what has sold before and the relative sale prices, can give an indicator as to the possible sale value of your home. Bearing in mind that a surveyor will also use precedent when making their calculations to report to a lender, these sold prices carry considerable weight. Any property that seems to attempt to break the 'ceiling' price of a given area will be considered a risk. Looking at local relevant sales that have happened recently will help you better understand the potential price limit of yours.

    • Price per square foot - this is not a commonly used valuation tool, as it doesn't take into account any amenities (like an amazing view) or disadvantages (like a public footpath through the garden). However, it can be a useful guide to see literally how much house a buyer would get for their money. We suggest that you take into account any attached building, even if it's a garage, but exclude any detached building, unless it's an additional dwelling (eg a holiday cottage in the grounds).Your square footage is the gross internal measurements of your home; in other words, the internal dimensions multiplied, but excluding any internal walls. You can calculate a price per square foot by dividing the asking price of a property by the square footage, although these figures can vary considerably.

      If your price per square foot is substantially over or under the average in your area, it could be an indicator that your asking price is too low, or too high. Too low, and you're at risk of underselling your home, but too high an asking price may mean you won't get any viewings.

    • Online Instant Valuation Tools - these are relatively new to the UK, but becoming increasingly popular with homeowners looking for a quick answer to their question, 'how much is my home worth?'

  • paragraph

    Every home is different and therefore not all our marketing material is the same, for example a house with a stunning view will surely need an elevated photo to capture that view in the best possible way. We use state of the art drone cameras for this purpose, capturing not only the shot of the house but also the stunning backdrop to truly reflect what your house is all about.
  • paragraph

    ELR have always looked to explore innovative marketing ideas,   with this in mind we are always looking to embrace different ways to showcase our properties for example we now offer professionally taken photos for the majority of properties we place on the market and the option of a 3 dimensional plan if our client prefers. With more people using their phones to search for property than ever before our impressive website has been recently redesigned to be viewed on any form of media device, resizing to fit even the mobile phone giving the user the best possible viewing platform in any format they choose to access our information resulting in more potential purchasers for our clients. When you combine this with innovative marketing techniques such as open houses, virtual tours, 'premium listings' and 'featured properties' on the nations favourite website, Rightmove, its easy to see why ELR are still selling houses for the proud people of Rotherham.

    If you have any questions as to how we can offer you a personalised service why don't you call our Award Winning Rotherham office on 01709 917676 to discuss how ELR can be of service to you and give you a competitive edge when selling?

    Warm welcome
    Make sure your home feels cosy. If viewings are going ahead while you are at work, then set the central heating timer for an hour before they arrive.


  • paragraph

    Light and bright
    The dark winter days give you the chance to use lighting to show off your home to maximum effect. Incorporate multiple light sources - from standing lamps and table lamps to down-lighters. The best-lit rooms have layers of light that blend well together. Overhead lights wired on a dimmer will improve the mood of a room.


  • paragraph

    Mirror, mirror
    Many smaller homes can feel claustrophobic in winter when you cannot leave doors open to the garden or balcony. Use mirrors in narrow areas, such as the hallway, to manipulate the perception of space by reflecting light.


  • paragraph

    Outside space
    There is nothing you or anybody else can do to make your gardens a vision of Babylonian splendour at this time of year. All you can attempt is damage limitation by tidying up lawns and borders. However, you can impress your visitors by displaying pictures of your garden, with all the plants in bloom and the family enjoying your little sun-trap.

  • Introduction

    Richard Badger - Director

    Richard has worked in the industry since the late 1990's starting out as an administrator/trainee negotiator before becoming a trainee Valuer within 6 months. Having been pouched within 12 months he jumped ship to a competitor where he continued to learn the Business before moving again to spend 11 years with a long established Rotherham firm. Many contacts within the industry were gained here together with the understanding of Land valuations, probate valuations etc.

    Richard opened the Rotherham (Wickersley) office in August 2015 from a cold start & has enjoyed watching the office flourish together with ELRs reputation grow.  With ELR already being a well known name  in Sheffield, Richard saw a fantastic opportunity to bring the name to Rotherham and use his previously learned knowledge to great effect in his hometown of 45 years.

    Tracy Potter  - Senior Negotiator

    Tracy joined the ELR team in late March 2016 as Senior sales negotiator having previously worked in the industry for an agent in her home town of Thurcroft for 6 years. She learnt the industry here spending a long time in the Lettings division before moving to Residential Sales.

    She's a tremendous asset to ELR, every morning walking into the office with a skip in her step and a smile on her face. This infectious characteristic of Tracys is seen by all our buyers and sellers who often comment on her jovial manner, this is probably why she has so many gifts given to her by our happy buyers and sellers!

    Stacey Walton - Administrator/Trainee Negotiator

    Stacey joined the Rotherham ELR team in late 2016 from a previous career with Lombard/RBS.

    Stacy had never worked within the Estate Agency business until she joined the Rotherham team but within a week she and the rest of the team felt like she had been with them for years! Another bubbly and optimistic team member, Staceys taken to her role like a duck to water. Phenominally efficient, excellent time keeper & brilliant with clients. A great team player but her lack of 80's Bands knowledge leaves her speechless when the rest of the team are reminiscing! 

    Married with a young son, Stacey is a Wickersley resident and can often be seen in the local public houses!
