Preparing For Our Visit

Before we come, it is helpful if you can weigh up all the positives and negatives about your property and consider the following:

  • What is the condition of the property, are you planning on any work prior to marketing?
  • How good are the local amenities? Is it close to good schools?
  • How good are the transport links?
  • What are the best points about the property that we can pass on to viewers?
  • What are the places locally that a new owner or occupier would be interested in knowing about?
  • Are you aware of anything which could put a buyer or a tenant off the property?  There is a legal obligation for you to notify any potential viewer of your property about anything which could affect their decision to make an appointment, so we need to understand all of the negatives, as well as the positives, in order to work effectively for you.
