Advice on your property

In order to sell or let your property, we will do everything in our power to help you. However, it is important to remember you can also help the process move along by following a few hints and tips:

Selling your property quickly and obtaining the best possible price has to be a priority for any prospective vendor and there are a few very simple steps which you can take to improve your chances greatly.

First impressions are very important; your prospective purchaser will form an opinion within thirty seconds of drawing up outside your property. Make sure your garden is kept tidy and free from unnecessary clutter. A well kept garden usually looks larger and is easier to maintain than an untidy one. Look at the front door and window sills, a coat of paint can do wonders to improve their appearance.

Make sure the interior of the house is also free from clutter and that the furniture is arranged sensibly. Flowers and plants can make a room seem more welcoming as can a warm house in winter and open windows and fresh air in the summer. If you would like advice about the internal decor of your property, contact Ian Macklin and Company and ask for their guidance.

Whilst we are showing people around your property, try to be as helpful as possible. You may have a file ready to show them running costs such as council tax, rates, fuel and electricity. If there are any receipts or guarantees still valid, keep these handy as well.

Finally, if you have pets, try to keep them isolated during viewings.
