Some good reasons to use an Estate Agent Only recently did the OFT come out and suggest consumers should consider “private seller platforms”. Perhaps implying a need for awareness? Prospective buyers who come to view your property could well come looking for alternative means such as your car and other personal possessions. Estate agents generally are very good at assessing enquirers needs and obtaining the relevant information. So why would you risk all to avoid paying a fee to an Estate Agent?

Enjoy the Christmas Experience I called into the John Lewis store near York last week in pursuit of a trouser press and was instantly impressed by the amount of Christmas decorations, gifts and treats already displayed. I have since noticed that Christmas TV advertising is well underway, plus the X Factor and Strictly Come dancing are now rolling nicely along too. Christmas is on its way but there’s still time to get simple things sorted in your home in order to sell by Christmas (according to sources at HomeOwnerAlliance) and these include:- Ensuring that you have good exterior lighting helps create that better first impression when buyers come to view. Don’t ignore the back garden, clear away leaves, trim the hedges, make sure your gutters are cleaned and that any summer furniture or toys are removed from the patio. Even highlight a corner of the garden, tree or a plant so that it can look inviting seen from the inside as the longer nights are approaching. Well stocked bird feeders also create a lovely addition to your garden which will delight potential owners.

It just means that home owners on the move won’t have to worry about tidying up all the time, it will encourage serious viewings.
