Selling Your Home
The following offers a range of simple hints and tips for the successful sale of your house. Some ideas may seem obvious but, given that you live in your house and see it every day, it is not unusual for people to become "blind" to some things that will be an immediate turn-off to potential new purchasers. Why not invite us to give you a free valuation today?
A "For Sale" board
When you decide to sell, we strongly recommend that you agree to have a "For Sale" board. The presence of a crisp, properly erected board stimulates a positive response from prospective buyers.
We receive more genuine enquiries from our "For Sale" boards than we do from all our advertising in the Local Press
If you really don’t want your neighbour's to know that you're selling, we will be the soul of discretion, but to be honest, there is not much hope of keeping it quiet for long. Neighbours are bound to notice people measuring your house and garden. They'll almost certainly see different cars calling at all hours and people eyeing the roof, peering into the garage and clutching pieces of paper.
Let us use your neighbour's interest. They all have friends and relatives and the more people who know your property is on the market, the more opportunities you will have of obtaining the Best Market Price in the Shortest Possible Time.
The "Unaware" Buyer
There are many potential buyers who do not take an active interest in the property market; they do not read property advertisements in the local newspapers or scan Estate Agents’ windows.
You must attract the interest of these buyers and one way to do so is a "For Sale" board. It is always a surprise to see a board appear in your neighbourhood. You may pass by a large poster advertisement because you have become accustomed to it but when a "For Sale" Board pops up everyone takes immediate notice.
Very often, the person who calls us has not been considering moving. They have been waiting for something to trigger their interest and a "For Sale" board achieves just that. The board also helps anyone who has made an appointment to find your property – particularly important on busy roads and on dark evenings.
If you have decided to sell your property, it is probably one of the most important financial transactions of your life. You will quite reasonably expect us to obtain for you the very best possible market price. You may be assured we will do all we can to achieve just that and a "For Sale" board will help us to help you.
A little effort
Let there be light
Keep a "Low Profile" – please
Remember, the buyer is uncomfortably aware that he or she is in someone else’s house and if he sees you in the shadows he will hurry his viewing and stifle his objections. We must discover these objections in order to make a sale!
