Got a dripping tap or a cracked tile? These will send the wrong message to potential buyers. From removing grubby sealant to replacing damaged areas of carpet, try and get all issues repaired before putting the house for sale.
If you’d rather not re-decorate, it is essential that your property is presented well before every viewing. Dusting and polishing can spruce up a home enormously. Pay special attention to the kitchen and bathrooms. Make sure the beds are made. Using plug-ins, scented candles or fresh flowers can create a clean light scent.
Clutter doesn’t sell homes, it makes them seem smaller and disorganised. Take time to remove as much as possible without leaving the rooms bare. Clear kitchen worktops as much as possible leaving just the kettle, coffee machine and fruit bowl.
Consider your target market, buyers like to see clearly defined rooms. Each room should have a clear function. Try to tailor your space to appeal to the main group without alienating other groups that might be interested. So if you feel that your target market is families, maybe turn that office space into a playroom or family room.
If you have not yet appointed a solicitor you need to do so immediately and supply us with their name, company name, address, telephone number and email address.
If you are finding it difficult to find the right solicitor to meet your needs, we would be happy to provide you with a few recommendations of independent local solicitors from which to choose.
Once you have chosen a solicitor, we recommend that you contact your solicitor and get them to obtain the following:
For the auction process, a contract is required to be available in the lead up to the auction in order for potential bidders to review carry out their due diligence.
A Building Energy Rating (BER) certificate is compulsory for all properties being rented or sold.
Please note that we need the BER Cert and Report prior to the property going for sale on the market. We can recommend some BER assessors or arrange for the assessment to be carried out for you.
