MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION
Preparing your property for the market
A fresh coat of paint can make a world of difference for the internal aspects of a property and can also be relatively inexpensive. Neutral colours are usually best. “Spring-cleaning” the interior of the property by tidying and removing clutter from each room can create a fresh atmosphere for viewings and show off the space that exists.
Loose door handles? Dripping taps? Scuffed paint? Fixing the small jobs is vitally important to show your attention to detail. Present your property at its best whilst always remembering that it is a working household at the same time.
WHAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU
Before we place your property to the market we will discuss what works best for you with regards to viewings and whether an open day is preferred so that all your viewings are completed in one day.
A representive will accompany all your viewings so you can vacate your property safe in the knowledge that they are being handled by a professional.

We will discuss all aspects of the purchasers with you, such as current buying position, mortgages and time frames. All of this information will help you make an informed decision on the buyer that you will eventually proceed with. We will advise and guide you along the way, remembering that the final decision can only be yours.
Securing the sale of your property
Monitoring the progress of the sale is vitally important to avoid any unnecessary delays. It is also imperative to keep all relevant parties updated, so they understand the transaction and can act upon information.

How much tax do you pay when you sell your house?
if you’re selling your only property (or your main home), you won’t pay any capital gains tax on the profits of the sale.

Always check with a professional to ensure that you are paying the correct taxes for your sale.
