The Selling Process
  • paragraph

    Preparation
    Preparing your property correctly can make a big difference to the final selling price and the speed of sale.
    - Tidy the lawn and garden, try to make it look as large as possible.
    - Make sure the front door and any path/driveway are immaculate, as first impressions count.
    - Clear away any clutter and if possible store some things off-site. Make the rooms look as large and light as possible.
    - De-personalise by removing items such as most family photos and 'nick-nacks'.
    - Choose the correct lighting for each space. This can improve the mood of the rooms.
    - Organise rooms so that their purpose can be seen clearly
    - Carpets and windows should be cleaned, surfaces dusted.
    - Air the property by opening windows and perhaps purchase a few air fresheners.
    - Remember, some buyers may not appreciate pets.
    - Complete any outstanding DIY jobs.
    - If any of the rooms have very bright colours or carpets, you might neutralise them.
    - If your bathroom or kitchen looks tired then you might re-paint the doors, ceiling and walls, clean or re-grout any tiled areas that are going black.

    What We Can Offer

    No property is too small nor too large for Luscombe Maye Estate Agents. We readily handle the sale of all types of properties from apartments and cottages to family homes and country houses across the whole of the area covered by our six strategically located offices. If you live in the South Hams then we have an office near you. We use the latest technology to help us with bespoke software linking our offices so that information about buyers and sellers is readily available throughout the firm. But we are experienced enough to know that there is no substitute for good old fashioned methods of communications which is why we take the trouble to speak to our buyers and sellers on the telephone as well as sending emails and texts to them. This business is, after all, all about people as much as property.

    As no two properties are the same, we plan a specific marketing campaign for each client and we tailor the sales particulars to highlight the unique selling points of each individual home.We are members of the National Association of Estate Agents and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and are bound by their strict codes of conduct and ethical behaviour so you know that with Luscombe Maye you are with an agent you can trust.

      ... an asset to your company...
      Just wanted to express my thanks to the team at Modbury but most especially Diane for being so helpful in finding my mother a house in Modbury . 
      It has been a long year of selling a large house, losing the first house she wanted to buy and then finally finding just the right one and this extremely stressful process was made much more bearable with the help of Diane, who kept us informed and advised at all stages, her patience and professionalism are an asset to your company.
      With very many thanks

      Thank you very much...
      Thank you very much for your congratulations and for all your hard work in dealing with this rather protracted sale, not least due to having to manage we three as well! 
      It is a most satisfactory completion to letting our property go, which you have dealt with very sensitively, and for which we are very appreciative.

      Special thanks...
      Now that the dust has settled I wanted to write and let you know how pleased I have been with the way that you and your colleagues have handled this very difficult sale. 
      If only all the other parties involved had been as professional as your office I am sure the sale would have gone through in half the time.
      Special thanks go to Diane who kept us in touch with what was happening and who tried to keep me sane!
      I would have no hesitation in recommending your office to others who wish to sell their properties.
