Guide To Selling

Market Ready House

Get your property market ready.

Think like a buyer….when they view, how will they see your property?

Do any rooms need re-decorating? Is the front door in pristine condition?…. first impressions are so important!

De-clutter and remove valuables, personal items and family photographs that you would not wish to be seen on the website.
