    Top tips for sellers..
    • paragraph

      Preparing your home for viewings is vital..
      Clean & Tidy   

      First impressions are everything so keep everything neat and tidy, this includes the garden, cleaning windows inside and out and getting carpets professionally cleaned (especially if you have pets). Even the front door may need freshening up as this is the first thing that will catch the eye of the viewer.

    • paragraph

      De-clutter and de-personalise
      Store, throw or give away anything that isn't needed or doesn't belong, to really open up the space as potential buyers need to imagine themselves living in your house. If possible do however leave some personality as it may give unimaginative buyers suggestions as to what they might do with the property.
    • paragraph

      Freshen up
      Give the walls a fresh lick of paint making rooms seem bigger and brighter. Keep it neutral so viewers can easily imagine how they can adapt the rooms to their needs. If the decoration is neutral it will also appeal to those who want to move in and live in the space straight away.
    • paragraph

      Fix it
      Make any necessary minor repairs - leaking taps, cracks and holes in walls, broken cupboards and door handles, cracked tiles, torn or stained carpets. These are things that can stand out like a sore thumb and put buyers off without seeing the full potential in a property.
    • paragraph

      Light & airy
      Buyers are always looking for light and airy homes so ensure you do everything possible to create this impression. Replace light bulbs if not working and add soft lighting to those dark rooms or corners. Consider putting mirrors up to create the illusion of a light and airy home. Open up blinds and curtains when viewings are taking place. Open windows to let fresh air in and keep the home well ventilated, particularly bedrooms.
    • paragraph

      Once you have found a buyer what happens next?

      Find out if the agent has a dedicated Move Manager to efficiently progress the sale through to a smooth completion. Move Managers are an extremely valuable resource. Solely located in branch, they are always available to offer guidance and help throughout the entire process.

      Check the agent has the facility to vet the financial position of potential buyers. This can ensure those viewing your property are in a position to proceed with an offer.

      Can the agent help you find a home locally or out of the area? With houses few and far between in the current market, having an agent which is linked to a UK network could help you in your search for that 'dream home'.

      Can they give you the personal touch? Communication is vital throughout the whole process, so does the agent go above and beyond others? This could be as simple as a contact number so you can speak to your agent out of normal business hours and offering advice on what may be the smallest of detail but of significant importance to you
