    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

    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!

      No hesitation in recommending your firm

      So efficient and helpful
      Dear Nock Deighton,

      I would like to say a massive thank you for your amazing estate agent services throughout this last year. It has been a very difficult process selling my beloved parents house that they built themselves and you have been so efficient and helpful that it has made a difficult task run very smoothly and therefore as stress free as selling a house can be.

      The best aspect of your service has been your customer care. Every time I have spoken to someone on the phone, I have always been greeted by a friendly voice and always had a very useful and helpful conversation. I cannot tell you how appreciative I am of this, when you do not always get this when calling other companies. You have kept me informed every step of the way and kept me calm when I worried the house was not selling! These days, estate agents can get a bad press, but I was so impressed by your care and service.

      I would highly recommend anyone to sell with you, especially someone in my position who had potential need of other services like house clearance which you were also able to advise on.

      So all in all, I just want to thank Nock Deighton again for training their staff so well.

      With Kind Regards,

      Dr J J-H

      Would not hesitate to recommend you
      To Matthew,
      I can't thank you, Glyn and the team there enough. You have kept me updated and in the loop at all times and to a far greater extent than others. I have not had to chase and you have been very proactive on my behalf. I will of course use you again (not that I am planning on any further moves after this one) and would not hesitate to recommend you to the whole of Shropshire and beyond!
      Thanks again.

      Outstanding service
      Dear Mr Taylor
      Please forgive the intrusion, but I wanted to compliment you on an outstanding service from your Ironbridge branch. In particular from a member of staff, Matthew James. I say the intrusion, as Nock Deighton are the estate agent of vendor, Mrs J W. We have a relatively short chain but it has not been without a few issues along the way as one would expect. Despite all of this, one aspect has remained steadfast. Matthew has been an exemplar in estate agency conduct, and he has definitely held things together in co-ordinating the chain. My estate agents have left a lot to be desired in their aftersales support, and my conveyancing team haven't been easy either. Matthew has gone above and beyond what I would have expected and I'm so impressed that he has certainly delivered a standard I suspect you have set yourselves which has most certainly exceeded my hopes not to mention my expectations. Matthew is the only reason we all know what's going on and not locked away in a darkened room with an ample supply of Neurofen! Matthew has conducted himself in a professional manner with a friendly and easy approach. He certainly has impressed me so much that should I ever move again, I would certainly be partnering with Nock Deighton to do so.
      Please pass my thanks to Matthew and my congratulations to Nock Deighton on such an outstanding member of staff who has delivered an outstanding service.
      Kindest regards Mrs M F

      Heartfelt thank you
      To the staff of Nock Deighton Estate Agents.

      We would like to send you a heartfelt thank you for all your kindness and efficiency during our purchase of our property in Much Wenlock.

      Certainly your prompt attention both to us and to our family, is so much appreciated and an enormous help, as we are so far away, here in Durham.

      Thank you all, so very much and warmest good wishes.

      I would recommend them wholeheartedly
      Absolutely brilliant - service went above and beyond what I could have expected.

      I used Nock Deighton both to sell my own property and to purchase another - every part of the sale and purchase was handled extremely efficiently.

      I was supported all the way through my purchase with every query answered promptly and staff going to great lengths to contact solicitors, pass on communications etc.

      It was great to know that I could rely on the staff here and I would recommend them wholeheartedly.
