Free Home Valuation
How much is my property worth?
If you are thinking about selling your home, this is the first question that arises.
Conducting an accurate property valuation is the first step leading to a successful sale. If you state a higher asking price than what your property is worth, the sale will be hampered, attracting interested people who expect much more than what the property offers. If you present a lower value, you will lose money on the sale.
Valuations give you an overall estimate of how much your house is worth based upon several different factors. This way, you will know precisely the appropriate amount that you should request during its sale.
Also, by knowing your property´s proper pricing, you will be able to perceive how much you can spend when looking for a new house in the market.
We will provide a free valuation of your property and consider its location, special features, and market conditions. We will then combine this information with our experience, expertise, and local knowledge to provide a swift and accurate estimate of the real price of your property.

GETTING YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER
The first impression people receive from your property is most vital. The upkeep of your property can have an impressionable effect of potential customers. Possible methods of helping your property stand out can include painting your front door or cleaning up the garden and surrounding’s. If the property being sold is an apartment, then adjustments of furniture or clean-up of the property would be advisable. If the property appears to be run down it will repel interested customers.
A customer’s main way of thinking when buying a house would be “can I see myself living here?” We would recommend paint with an attractive and cool colours to help costumers picture what future plans they would consider when finally in the property.
We would ensure your property is sold at your best interest. We would also recommend that you consider the following:
Who is your target market?
You should consider who would be most interested in your property. Off, course the type would depend on the correct target groupto accelerate the process of selling your property. Older people seem to prefare bungalow type property compare to younger people, so the type of property would make usdecide on a specific group. For example, if your target market was directed at young (possibly college students) tenants then we would make a recommendation to change your office to a bedroom or work station. Methods like such ensure your property will reach a wider base of people.
De-Clutter and De-Personalise
As previously mentioned, buyers would be most interested in property they can see themselves living in. It is best to display as much counter surface space and floor space as possible. Items you don’t use on a regular basis should be stored away safely, as well as large furniture in order to make the area appear spacious. We also recommend removing clutter items in hallways like coats or shoes, and clearing the bathroom of personal items. The same would be advised in the kitchen. Old tea towels, over flowing bins and any surface appliance should be out of view.
Paint your walls with a fresh layer of a cool and attractive colour, new tiling and lino can liven up the look of your bathroom or kitchen. Make sure to look out for water stains, which will need to be repaired then painted over. If a potential buyer notices a water stain, they’ll be less likely to purchase as they would be worried of leakage which from their view would lead to a bigger leakage issue. If the property has a garden; mowing the lawn, removing weeds and adding some colourful flowers can add a very vibrant effect to the property.
If you don’t feel urged to re-decorate your property, a deep clean would be essential, in order to give the property a fresh feeling. Professional cleaners can transform the property and will be well worth the price. The sight of a sparkling bathroom and kitchen as well as other rooms will satisfy the buyer substantially. If pets are present in the property, the property should be aired out before viewings. Scented candles, fresh flowers or even plug-ins can have a huge impact on removing scents.
Letting in Light
Curtains and blinds should be opened to let in light and let the interior of the property appear brighter. Cleaning windows would also be advised. A sunny atmosphere in the house can make the property look really attractive. Ensure that curtains are clean and hung correctly. Ensure light bulbs are also working if the weather isn’t too ideal and if a fire place is present, lighting it can have create a comforting atmosphere in the property.
Preparing for Viewings
To make the property appear inviting for the viewer, sweeping the entrance, and tidying the front garden as well as entrance hall in your property would be favourable. Also if pets are present it would be best to leave it with a neighbour during the viewing time, and remove any traces of pets in the property (you never know if the viewer could be allergic to particular pets). Make sure the property is aired out and do not smoke or cook spicy food before the viewing as it would be difficult to remove lingering scents. If a driveway is present, leave it empty for the viewer, as it can help boost the buyer’s experience of the property. Mats should also be present in front of the door as well as the rear of the door in case of snow or rain.
Our agents will arrive prior to the viewing to turn on lights and heating if necessary.
