Advice When Selling Your Home

Selling your property quickly and for the best possible price is always a priority and there are a few simple steps that can greatly improve your chances of making a good first impression to potential buyers:

Exterior

Many people will “drive by” your home prior to booking a viewing. Try to ensure that the exterior of your property is always well maintained - not just for viewings. The frontage is a good place to spend a little money.

A tidy garden gives the impression of a well kept home. Bedding plants & flowers are not generally expensive but will improve the image.

A fresh coat of paint can work wonders to the appearance of external fences, doors and window sills.

Clearing out garages and external stores can give the impression of more space.

Interior

Make sure that you home is clean throughout. A good spring clean always helps and don’t forget the windows.

Try to ensure the interior of your home is free of clutter, particularly in hallways and in smaller rooms. Consider the position of furniture to make the best use of the space. Clutter makes homes feel smaller and less organised.

Objects such as photographs and ornaments can personalise the home to you and can make it more difficult for a potential purchaser to identify it as their home.

Opening the windows in summer can give a brighter, light and airy feel. Ensure there is adequate lighting in every room, particularly in Winter.

Try to keep décor neutral and light to increase the feel quality and spaciousness. Not all buyers view the potential of a home….only as it is currently presented. Simple is always safest.

Not everyone likes pets so if you have a viewing booked, try to keep them isolated.

Use objects to enhance the space such as mirrors which will help to reflect the light and make areas look bigger.

Hi Martin, It is so refreshing to find an estate agents where all the staff are so friendly and so very efficient you should be very proud of your team. If you had not sold your letting business I would certainly have re-rented via you. I hope however it was the right decision for you and that the sales business is good. Lynne G. (An ex landlord that we sold for when she decided she wanted to off load her rental property that we looked after).

To Martin and all the staff. Thank you very much for all your help & advice in selling our house. With best wishes from Ann & Ian W'. 10/12/19
We have used Martin a couple of times to sell properties and to buy from him, we have found him to be very knowledgeable, honest and ‘on the ball’. We would use him over some of the other purple bricks type companies as with this type of purchase you need something to glue all the components together, with his upbeat positive, can do attitude we felt confident that he would sell our property and keep everything on track- which he did. 9th May 2021.
