Clean your windows - You should be able to clean your ground-floor windows, frames and sills easily - and a professional window-cleaner won't be expensive to get the upper floor windows done too. To make the best possible impression get your windows cleaned to a shine. Make sure your window ledges are tidy and that curtains and blinds are neatly arranged. If you have net curtains, consider giving them a clean (or your actual curtains if they're looking grubby).
Have Realistic Expectations With Respect To The Market - As with a lot of markets in the U.K., the housing marketplace in Bideford has been better. You need to be realistic about the actual market value of your house if you're wanting a fast sale. This might be difficult, especially if you stretched too far on your property loan when you originally bought your home. Think about having a chat about your circumstances with your Independent Financial Adviser, and with your agent to come to an agreement of a sensible valuation for your home.
Clear the attic - remove all the clutter. - Some applicants will want to take a look in the loft . If the attic is stuffed full of stuff that look likes it may not be removed then this can be off putting. Additionally, a nice empty attic will give the appearance that it could have loft-conversion potential.
Be fussy over photographs. - Your agency (or you - if you elect to engage the for sale by owner model) will be required to take photographs of the inside and outside of your property. This is a requirement to have it listed in an attractive way on the WWW, and in property particulars. Make sure that every picture sells the house or living area to the very best possible. Ensure that the aspect and light source makes for a flattering and desirable image. Ditch as much excess ornamentation as you are able to before taking pictures of a room or exterior aspect - excess ornamentation will make your house to look smaller and messy. Don't include photographs with parts of your hand, pets or smoking paraphernalia in them!

Food For Thought
How much time does the legal process take ?
This is one of our most frequently asked questions and sadly, there simply is no easy answer because it depends on so many different things. The most straightforward kind of property sale is that of an empty property to a cash purchaser. This would probably take about 6 weeks to complete (from the time of instruction with a solicitor to when the property changes hands). If the purchaser needs a property loan, this could well add a number of extra weeks to the process. In the case where the seller is additionally buying a property, this could add 2-4 additional weeks and maybe even more delay if there is an extended chain of connected sales. Even more delays could result from misplaced paperwork, lethargic Bideford conveyancers and slow buyers and sellers. An average completion timeframe is about 10-14 weeks.
Advice for Property Buyers
Any property agent in Bideford can lay claim to having a large number of prospective buyers on their books but it is your responsibility to establish what actions are taken to qualify those buyers as suitable persons to view and proceed to buy your property. Not an insignificant number of viewers may register an interest in your home however a well trained property agent will identify the buyers who have a serious and pressing requirement to buy and should as a consequence be showing serious interest in buying your house.
