    Having made the decision to sell your home your focus will generally be all consumed with creating a new life, in your dream home, but remember that your current property will be someone's next dream home.

    In order to achieve the best price in the shortest timescale you must ensure your current home stands out from competing properties on the market in your area.

    It may be difficult having lived in your current home for many years, but the trick is now to detach yourself from your home and take professional advice on how to best present your property.

    Ultimately that advice may result in investing some money, possibly to re-decorate, re-carpet, fix issues that may be picked up at survey stage and help reduce potential delays at a later stage.

    Planning and taking action where required now, could save you time and money. Keep your next dream home in thought and always keep an open mind, making the wrong choice now could be costly and ultimately delays or poorly managed sales progression could mean you lose your dream home.

    Advice to get you moving in 2018:

    Ask an independent agent to not only value your house, but also provide feedback on any work or improvements that would help sell your house, don't ask friends.

    You have a requirement as a seller to comply with the CPR (Consumer Protection regulations) get your agent to explain CPR and give all agent all the information they need to answer any queries from prospective purchasers.

    It may sound like common sense, but many home sellers forget the basics, but get the basics wrong and you could lose a sale and potentially sell for a lower price.

    A quick list of the basics:

    . Price your property to maximise internet hits

    . A picture speaks a thousand words

    . Get all paperwork in place before going to market

    . Customise your home to prospective purchasers

    . De-clutter your property

    . Make sure pets are out of the property on viewings

    . Ensure your house is warm and inviting 

    . Ensure all lights are working 

    . If you have a wood burner light it on viewings

    . Replace any worn carpets

    You may have an agent locally who are also chartered Surveyors, they will have knowledge of what issues may potentially be highlighted at mortgage valuation stage, or if prospective purchasers decide to undertake a Homebuyer or Building survey.

    Getting the right advice from the start is imperative, moving home can be one of life's greatest challenges.

      Constant source of advice and encouragement

      In an age when estate agents do not always get the best press in the world Josie has been outstanding. She is an example of what a good agent should be all about. It is almost two years since our house was first on the market, and throughout that time Josie has been a constant source of advice and encouragement, and always in a professional and astute manner. Some people merely go an extra mile but Josie has done a virtual marathon on our behalf, and we cannot thank her enough for all her efforts.

      Above and beyond their duties

      I wanted to take the time to feedback on the service we received from your Queensbury office, in particular from Jordan and Josie. We were interested in a property that had come on to the market through a bank repossession and as such it wasn't a standard purchase. We had never bought a repossession before and Josie and Jordan both guided us through the process from start to finish. On several occasions something happened that nearly meant we couldn't complete the purchase. At each instance Josie and Jordan were there for us. They answered all our questions honestly and I've never felt so supported. There was never a time when we felt we were an inconvenience or a nuisance. (At one point I was calling twice daily so I could have understood if they had!) This has been the most stressful and emotional time for myself and my husband and through it all Josie and Jordan have been right there with us. They definitely went above and beyond their duties and went out of their way for us. If we ever consider selling our home we will have no doubt as to who will represent us.

      Mr & Mrs Pratt 10/08/14

      Support and professional advice

      Thank you so much for your support and professional advice all along the way. We felt in safe hands and knew that we could rely on you. Whenever we were in doubt about the house sale and/or purchase we would say: "Let's ask Jacqui!"

      Thank you for helping us to make informed decisions and saving us quite a bit of money on the way too and also for reassuring the purchasers in the process of buying our house! We are pleased that we chose Walker Singleton and will recommend you to others. Also thank you to Ben, Jack and Gill for their professional work and support. Mrs Scaife 11/08/14

    • Seller Testimonial

      went over and above her duty

      I want to tell you how impressed I am with the care I received from your staff member Gillian Bateson. I put my brothers house into the hands of your company, in may of this year, after his death. As executor I was responsible to sell it, under difficult circumstances. As I live in Scarborough, away from the area, I had to rely entirely on contact with Gillian. She never let me down. Her caring personality showed me that I could trust her entirely. She went over and above her duty to keep me informed, and consulted, throughout the sale.

      Mrs E Brewster 13/11/14

      Mr P Bedolf 19/05/15

    • Seller Testimonial

      A better service you will struggle to find

      Upon the decision to sell our property we engaged 3 independent local estate agents to value our home. From the moment the Walker Singleton valuer, Steve, arrived on the doorstep I became aware the company was interested in selling my property on our behalf.

      Steve was quick and efficient, unlike the other valuers he didn't try to sell me the Walker Singleton company, by giving me the full history and details of the UK company portfolio. Steve even advised if he noticed anything which needed attention in the property, he would point it out, luckily everything was fine.

      The property launched on the market 8th April and was sold subject to contract for an acceptable offer in eight days, quite an achievement.Once the sale was in motion the Halifax office staff progressed the sale to exchange of contracts today, for completion Friday this week. I have to say Jacqui provided an excellent service, her professionalism and customer service was superb, not to leave anyone out, when Jacqui was unavailable her colleagues also delivered a great service.

      Everything has almost been like clockwork, a better service you will struggle to find.Thank you Walker Singleton, you certainly don't fall in to the category of estate agents so often ridiculed today.

      Mr and Mrs Kirkwood 10/06/2015

      Have been professional

      A massive thank you for all your help with the sale of our property. I really think it would have fallen through without you. From the start to the end you have been professional and always kept in touch. The fact that you kept us updated and always made contact when you said is very rare these days. I have be recommending WS to Friends and family. A big thank you to Gill as well who was always there in your absence. You went over and above with helping the purchaser to ensure our sale went through and we really appreciate it.

      Miss C Pike 22/09/15

    • Seller Testimonial

      We can't thank Walker Singleton enough

      After we first contacted Walker Singleton, the next day one of their representatives called at our house. He explained exactly what the process of selling involved, how they would help and how much it would cost, which was very reassuring.

      Plans and brochures were created very quickly, and in a couple of days we were up and running.We were very pleased with the photography and the brochures which must have done the trick because we got a flurry of viewings almost immediately.We were most impressed with the service we got. Jacqui and Gill kept us informed every step of the way and were most helpful both in our sale and the purchase of our new house.

      They dealt with all our queries and kept in touch with the seller and the purchaser's agents. We didn't have to do much at all.As we stand now, our sale has gone through at a satisfactory price and so has our purchase.We are just waiting for completion and the move to our new house.We can't thank Walker Singleton enough for smoothing the way through what is always a complicated process.

      Mr M Wood 15/10/15

    • Seller Testimonial

      by far the most professional of them all

      During the two and a half years it took to sell our property we used quite a few estate agents in Halifax and Walker Singleton was by far the most professional of them all. Jacqui and Gill kept in regular contact with us throughout the whole process and even phoned when they had no news for us, just to let us know we hadn't been forgotten! We will definitely be using them again in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell/buy a property.

      Mr & Mrs Waldron 22/10/15

    • Seller Testimonial

      Appreciate all of your hard work

      Just a quick message to say thank you so much for sorting out the purchase and despite the hiccups along the way with the lender and my useless solicitor, I got there in the end. I really appreciate all of your hard work and assistance throughout my purchase.

    • Seller Testimonial

      Provided outstanding customer service

      Gill provided outstanding customer service, liaising with both my own and the sellers solicitors to ensure that all issues were resolved satisfactorily and speedily. This was far from a straightforward transaction with a number of challenges that, without the valuable input and assistance offered by Gill, could well have caused me to abort the purchase. It is clear Gill took ownership of things that would not normally be considered within her remit in order to ensure that the sale completed in good time.In an age when many service providers are failing their customers, it is gratifying to find one who still values and appreciates them..

      Mr Roberts 23/09/15

      Can't say enough to thank you
      Thank you for absolutely everything. I just can't say enough to thank you for all you did to make this move turn out right. Way above and beyond the call of duty. I know I was hard work! this house is perfect. Thank you all so much, you are great and I will never forget all you have done. And I know it was a lot. Miss I Bytautiene 23/10/15
    • Seller Testimonial

      Worked tirelessly for months

      We decided to use Walker Singleton after an unsuccessful sale with an online agent. The two types of service received where worlds apart. Gill worked tirelessly for months on the sale of our property and the purchase of the one we now live in. Due to circumstances out of our hands there were issues with the chain. Gill kept us informed of what was happening throughout the process and chased other agents and solicitors to get things in order. I'm sure if it wasn't for Gill that we wouldn't be in our new property yet. Gill's hard work, positivity and professionalism is a credit to her and also to Walker Singleton. They are very lucky to have Gill working for them. Thanks again Gill, you have been fantastic.

      If only they could all be this good

      From the initial contact to the eventual sale of my property, I really can't praise both Steve & Lisa enough. The initial valuation was a little less than I expected but with the comparable evidence provided, I could see that Steve was spot on. This proved the case, as we agreed a sale within two weeks at a price we found acceptable. That's when Lisa took over. Her professionalism and excellent contact was second to none. The property went through within 6 weeks and we now are enjoying our new home. A credit to all estate agents everywhere. If only they could all be this good!


    • Seller Testimonial

      We are very happy with the service

    • Seller Testimonial

      best agent we have ever dealt with

      We have moved house on a number of occasions over a period of more than 40 years and, therefore, have gained substantial experience of estate agents in various parts of the country. We have no hesitation in saying that Walker Singleton is the best agent we have ever dealt with. Steve's valuation visit was a pleasant experience, as was the receipt of his recommendation regarding the value of our property. We were pleased to receive a further visit from him when it was thought beneficial to add further photos to our listing. Day-to-day dealings were with Lisa and in her Walker Singleton have a real gem. She was thoroughly professional throughout but also a warm and friendly point of contact. The fact that when we spoke to our purchasers they expressed a similar view speaks volumes.

    • Seller Testimonial

      couldn't have asked for a better service

      Exceptionally pleased with walker singleton and Gill Bateson, we had a nightmare with 2 sets buyers pulling out, but Gill took care of everything and kept the rest of the chain happy, chased solicitors and buyers every week, gave updates even if it was just too say she's chased but the news was the same. Couldn't have asked for a better service.

      Darren 26/11/16

    • Seller Testimonial

      Stuck at it and kept me informed of progress

      The sale seemed to go on for ever with the buyer's position changing as the weeks went by. However, Lisa stuck at it and kept me informed of progress, getting the sale to completion eventually.
