Clean your windows - If your windows or mirrors are looking grubby, consider mixing some white spirit vinegar with a little water and washing up liquid, popping the mixture in a spray-bottle and giving your windows and mirrors a clean. (use this cleaning tip at your own peril!). The washing liquid will act as a de-greaser and the vinegar will act as an anti-foamer / streaker. Grubby windows or mirrors will create a bad impression on Bideford property buyers.
Be choosy about pictures. - Your estate agency (or you - should you elect to engage the for sale by owner model) will be required to get photographs of the inside and outside of your house. This is a requirement to have it marketed in a winsome manner on the Internet, and in property particulars. Ensure that every photo really advertises the house or living area to the very best extent. Ensure that the angle and light source creates a winsome and desirable image. Ditch as much clutter and junk as you can prior to photographing a room or garden area - junk will make your property to appear smaller and messy. Avoid photographs with humans, pets or damage in them!
Shop around for a proactive Bideford estate agent - If you're putting your Bideford property on the market - then it's important to shop around before choosing your Bideford estate agent. The Internet affords the luxury of being able to read genuine customer feedback and reviews. For each agent in Bideford take the time to search the Internet and get a feel for what other clients are saying about them. You're looking for consistently good feedback. This should give you the confidence that they're going to do a good job for you, and get your property sold. If you come across bad feedback, then take the time to look at how old it is. Have been people been saying nicer things more recently? After all, if an agency had bad feedback in the past - and has improved, they could still be the best choice for you.
Rent Some Storage - If your house is very cluttered, then you may want to consider renting a storage unit in Bideford. Removing large, unnecessary articles of furniture and other clutter will give the appearance of larger rooms. Viewers like to see a reasonably blank canvas, that they can really imagine making their own. The disadvantages are the weekly costs of storage, and the double-handling of the furniture, that you will now have to move twice.

Food For Thought
What are searches?
As part of the process of purchasing your property, the solicitor you appoint will conduct searches on your behalf. (You must pay for these). The searches relate to the property you are buying - and check for various things. Is the current ownership of the property all in order? Is the seller in a legally sound position to do so? Is the environment OK (toxic ground, tree preservation orders, radon gas, flood-prone etc.). Is the land registered? What are the status of the mains water supply, drainage and sewerage? Are there mines or mining activity affecting the property? And so on. The purpose of the searches is to ensure that you are buying a property legally, and with no nasty surprises.
Advice For Buyers
Any property agent in Bideford could lay claim to having a large quantity of potential property buyers in their database but it is your responsibility to confirm what actions are taken to ensure that those buyers as suitable persons to view and go ahead to buy your house. A good percentage of viewers may indicate a passing interest in your home but an experienced estate agent can identify those applicants who have a serious and pressing need to move and will therefore be showing serious interest in buying your property.
