    Some tips from the experts
    image cannot be displayed

    Freshly ground coffee and home baked bread is the old classic but have you also considered these;

    • You don't get a second chance to make a first impression. A freshly painted front door is a great place to start.
    • Keep things tidy! A confident buyer sweeps into a room. An unconvinced buyer has to sweep through it!
    • In winter, have lights on during the day time. You would be amazed how many people don't do this during a viewing.
    • Draw back the curtains and embrace the light. In summer, natural light can liven a place up and give a feeling of freshness and cleanliness. So, draw back those curtains and open those windows.
    • Fresh air in, damp smells out; make use of 'plug-ins' or scented candles especially if your home has pets.
    • In vacant properties, always try and leave some key items of furniture behind to give the place a lived in feeling.
    • If a buyer sits down in a property, it's likely they feel at home, possibly even thinking of putting in an offer. This is a great sign, so for this reason, make sure there's space round sofas and armchairs so viewers don't have to step over coffee tables and magazines to get to them.
    • Peeling paint on a window, or a garden gate hanging off its hinges suggests that work needs to be done on the property. This can really erode a buyers' confidence and give them ammunition to negotiate harder on the price.
    • If you have a garden, make sure your property is as tidy on the outside as it now is on the inside. If you don't love your home, it is difficult to expect a would be purchaser to.
    • In winter, if you have a fireplace, make sure you use it! Everybody loves that feeling of sitting by the crackling fire.
    • To a nervous buyer, a simple damp stain could conjure images of an impending major leakage. Get it fixed and painted over.

Home Buying Advice
  • paragraph

    Where Do I Start?

    Contact your nearest Nock Deighton Office. The friendly staff will be keen to meet you and get to know all about you in order to try and put you in touch with the very best properties that meet your criteria, so invest some time and think about the following:

    • Which are the areas you would like to be buying in?
    • Are there any other areas that you perhaps hadn't considered?
    • What type of property do you envisage purchasing?
    • What are your key 'Must Haves' & 'Don't Wants'
    • Have you decided on you budget?
    • In what timescale are you looking to move?
    • If you need to sell, have you made any preparations to place your home on the market?
    • Have you spoken to a Financial Advisor to see what amount of money you may be able to borrow?
  • paragraph

    I Would Like To View Some Properties.

    Once we have a good idea of your needs, it's time to get out there and see a good range of properties so that you can get a grip on what your money will buy in your chosen area.

    • The sooner you become confident about value, the sooner you will be in a position to buy with conviction.
    • See as much as you can, however if you find the perfect property early on in your search, don't delay - if you like it the probability is that someone else will as well!
    • Give detailed feedback to your agent; it will help to guide them in assisting you.
  • paragraph

    Found It!

    When you find a suitable property, quickly get in touch with Nock Deighton about how to proceed. An offer is about more than just money; you will be asked to provide the office details of

    • Your current position (Sold, House to sell, No related sale)
    • Timescales
    • Any key items for inclusion (curtains, carpets, etc)
    • Your proposed method of funding the purchase

    In order for the seller to make an informed decision, we will need to make this information available to them.

  • paragraph

    What Happens Now?

    Once a sale has been agreed, the office will allocate main point of contact between all parties involved in the transaction. That person will also be there to help guide you every step of the way and to assist where at all possible. Your immediate priority is to:

    • Instruct a recommended local solicitor with experience of your chosen area.
    • Instruct your IFA/ Mortgage broker (if applicable) to commission a survey on the property.

    Once the legal (or 'conveyancing') work has been carried out and your finances are in order, you will be in a position to 'exchange contracts' prior to the agreed 'completion', at which point you can take possession of your new home.

  • paragraph

    Any Other Advice?
    • Invest time in your agent; the better they understand your needs, the more they can help.
    • Make sure everybody who needs to see the property has seen it before you offer.
    • This is an exciting yet sometimes stressful time for all involved. Be aware of the feelings of all those involved in the transaction and try and react logically and calmly to the ups and downs of the transaction
    • Get your ducks in a row; there are thousands of mortgage products on the market. Consult an independent mortgage advisor who can tailor the product to your needs.
    • Don't judge a book by its cover - no property will look like home until you have moved in!
