Spend Up To 1% - It is often advised that a seller should consider spending up to 1% of the sale value of the property on re-decoration, D.I.Y. and / or touching-up to achieve the best price. You should discuss this with a local Millbrook specialist adviser or Millbrook estate agent. A good Millbrook estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Millbrook? If so, you may want to take a good, objective look around. How many small, simple jobs are there that you haven't bothered getting around to doing? The problem is that we become blind to the small flaws after a while (apart from the ones that annoy us), whereas an observant newcomer to your home will spot them straight away. We're talking about curling wall-paper, or borders just need sticking down; Marks on walls, that need wiping off; Dead flies or dust on a lamp-shade; Dirty windows; Old screw-holes in walls that need filling and touching up. Now is the time to put a day aside to do these little jobs, and help achieve the best price for you property.
Marketing Your Home Through an Estate Agent - Even though you may have thought you'd selected the best estate agent in the town of Millbrook, they may have become complacent by relying on their reputation. Always satisfy yourself that they are doing the best job for YOU. Never mind their other clients - it's your home that needs the effort behind it to market and sell it as effectively as possible.
Get Painting - Consider some fresh paint. There’s a good reason why new builds in Millbrook are typically presented in magnolia and white. The light colours make rooms look larger and cleaner. White paint, in particular, makes kitchens and bathrooms look spick and span. Remember, that dark purple that you painted your bedroom in, that you completely love, may not be to Millbrook buyer’s liking!

Food For Thought
What does "Completion" mean?
This is when the buyer becomes the legal owner of the property and can move in. As early as possible on the agreed day, the buyer's solicitor will send the balance of the purchase money to the seller's solicitor. The seller's solicitor will notify the estate agent and the seller when the transaction is complete. Only then should the keys be released to the purchaser. This normally takes place around noon but could be as late as 5pm.
When a price is agreed for a property, what happens next?
If you have not already done so, you should instruct a solicitor immediately. You should then give the contact details to your estate agent. The estate agent will then write to all interested parties to get the ball rolling.
