No-one should buy a home without looking at it. We will always endeavour to describe your property in a way which will attract the widest range of potential buyers. Our colourful sales particulars will highlight your home's best features.
Having got a prospective buyer across your threshold, there are some things you can do to help clinch the deal and the following tips prepared by the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) may be of help:
First Impressions - Keep the garden tidy. Trim lawns, cultivate flower beds. Make sure paths and steps are free from snow and ice. Keep the driveway clear and any gates open. Leave room for people to park. Does your bell work? Can your house number be seen clearly?
Light The Way - Keep any porch or hall lights on at night.
Cats & Dogs - Keep pets quiet or out of the house when buyers call.
D.I.Y. - Tidy up any peeling wallpaper or damaged paintwork. Attention to even the smallest detail can generate good results.
Kitchens - The kitchen can tip the scales when it comes to selling. Make sure yours is well ordered with neat, clean cupboards.
Bathrooms - Watch for dripping taps or discoloured bath suites and keep the room clean, tidy and bright.
Bedrooms - Keep bedrooms tidy - that way they look more spacious.
Storage Space Sells - Keep cupboards, basements and attics tidy. Throw out unwanted rubbish.
Silence Speaks - Don't let the conversation dry up. Be courteous. Point out particular features of each room, but let the buyers inspect at their own pace.
The Grand Tour - This is fine, but let buyers have another look round on their own. Offer to answer their questions, but let them look at their leisure.
