Pet Problems - If you own pets, then consider re-housing them while your try to sell your home. At the very least, keep them out of sight during viewings, and make sure that you have removed as much trace of them as possible. Cat litter trays, bowls of pet food, pet hairs, stains on carpets and scratched up walls or furniture can be off-putting. There is also the issue of allergies to consider. Many people are allergic to pet hairs and dust. A home that sets off a reaction may put off otherwise keen Bideford viewers. Consider calling in a local Bideford cleaning specialist to revive carpets.
Be fussy over photos. - Your property agency (or yourself - should you elect to use the sell your own property method) will be required to get photos of the interior and outside of your house. This is a requirement to have it marketed in an attention grabbing fashion on the Internet, and in sales particulars. Ensure that every photo promotes the property or room to the best possible extent. In addition, make certain that the angle and light source produces a flattering and desirable image. Ditch as much junk as you can before taking pictures of a room or garden area - excess ornamentation will make your interior to appear smaller and unattractive. Try to avoid photos with you, cats or offensive posters in them!
Pets in your garden areas. - If you're selling your home in Bideford then you would be wise to look in your lawns for nasty mess left behind by either your own dogs and cats or neighbour's pets. When your garden smells like it's used as a sandbox, then this will make a very bad impression on viewers. Clean up after your own pets, and think about installing anti-dog or cat countermeasures to scare away and deter your neighbour's pets. Please double check that such measures are not harmful to the animals.
Make some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Bideford viewers!

Food For Thought
How long does the whole legal procedure take ?
This is one of our most regularly made enquiries and regrettably, there is no straight answer as it depends on so many different things. The most straightforward type of sale is that of an empty property to a purchaser paying with cash. This kind of transaction would likely take around 6 weeks to complete (from instruction with a solicitor to when the property legally finally becomes the new owner's property). If the buyer requires a property loan, this may well add a number of extra weeks to the process. If the seller is additionally buying a property, this could add 2-4 additional weeks and perhaps even longer if there is an extended chain of connected sales. Even more time delays could result because of missing paperwork, slow Bideford solicitors and slow buyers and sellers. A typical completion time is roughly ten to fourteen weeks.
The WWW and Estate Agent's Websites
The World Wide Web is a valuable tool in the world of property and a good agent will be well-versed in adopting the best hi-tech to make sure that your home is marketed to the world wide web. A knowledgeable Bideford agent should be publicising your home on some of the top notch property websites. The potential for persons, who are not of necessity registered as an interested person with your estate agent, to display an interest in your property will be greatly increased if your selected property agent is actively embracing IT. Take a look at the estate agents' own website and ask the question if it appears to be professional enough for interested parties to want to carry out a property search on it. Ensure you're satisfied that the property search is user friendly and that the returned properties are adequately presented. Ask are the property particulars clearly show and are all associated images of a good standard?
Of most importance, is the website fast enough? A sluggish performing, ineffective and complex to get around Internet site where web pages and images take an age to display will put off the vast majority site visitors who will be anxious to abandon the website to never return.
