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.
"I Don't usually write reviews but I felt compelled to this time, as they were so fantastic. Christine at Cherwell Property, has rented out and looked after my property for over 20 years.. I just resently sold my house through the company, which was within a, two week period. The sale was quick and stress free, thanks to Christine and her team. They are professional , honest and amazingly helpful whenever I needed advise. If you want the best then this is the company to choose. Thanks "
