Photographs will be taken of your property along with room dimensions providing as much information as possible to prospective purchasers.
Improve your homes kerb appeal! When presenting your property for sale it is always important to make sure you are giving the best first impression. Consider painting your front door, sweep away any leaves, mow the lawn and make sure your garden looks neat and tidy to give the best impression possible.
De-clutter wherever possible, not only will this help when it’s time to move but will give the best impression possible and attract maximum interest.
It is usually best to let your estate agent show buyers around whilst you are out. This will make the buyer feel more comfortable and they can have an open discussion about your house without fear of causing offence. They will be able to take their time looking around and imagining themselves living in your home.
Avoid smoking and strong cooking smells prior to viewings, also if you have any pets it can be worth keeping them (and their litter trays) well out of the way whilst preparing your house for sale and during viewings.
Once you have agreed an offer you will need to make sure you have instructed your solicitor to carry out your conveyancing. Your solicitor will carry out the necessary searches, collate legal paperwork, organise required checks, prepare documents, register the property and guide you through the entire process. A smooth move is easier to achieve with the use of professional conveyancing services and this applies whether you are buying or selling a property.
"A few weeks ago a family tragedy placed me in a position where I urgently needed to find rental accommodation for myself and my wife. I therefore approached a number of Estate Agents, some were good and others were extremely rude and unhelpful. For example one of them failed to appreciate that if you are prepared to pay 2 years rent in advance, one's gross annual income is largely irrelevant. Another grilled me on my wife's disability implying that her disability might prevent me from gaining the tenancy I wanted (against the law by the way). Now the good - From start to finish Cherwell Property staff acted with a high standard of professionalism and consideration. They fully appreciated my wife's disability imposed limitations on my time and availability. Thank you Chris for visiting my home with important documentation. I was kept fully informed as the search for a property continued and WITHIN 10 DAYS I was given the keys to exactly the type of property I wanted. So, a big thank you to all the staff of Cherwell Property and may you attain the future success you so richly deserve."
