Agent Accompanied Viewings
Some estate agents in Bideford will give the option to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. The agent will show-off your house to those viewing it, highlighting the most attractive features. Most viewers are increasingly likely to tell an estate agent, than the property owner, what they hate about a house. This means that if you employ the services of a Bideford estate agent, you are likely to receive honest information about what aspects of your house need dressing up to achieve a fast sale, at the highest achievable value.

Tidy The Garden - Perhaps you are not much of a gardener, your lawn is un-cut and the whole place is looking rather messy! Well it’s time to get busy. A badly presented garden may well be off-putting to Bideford buyers. Cut the lawn, trim the edges and remove as much junk and clutters as you can. A few plastic pots filled with colourful flowers could really change the appeal of your property.
Take Energy Efficiency Seriously - If you're placing your home on the market then Bideford purchasers are likely to be searching for homes with energy efficiency, as these houses are likely to be cheaper to keep, and faster to sell later on. A knowledgeable Bideford estate agency will be able to give you advice on this matter and point you in the right direction for converting your house to be improved so as to be energy efficient. The selling process now requires that an energy assessment professional will come and assess your home for its current and future potential Energy Efficiency Score and an current and potential Environmental (CO2) Impact Score. This certificate is required before to placing your property on the market.
Open Some Windows - Consider opening some windows for a couple of hours before a viewing. If it's a hot stuffy day, the leave them open, if it's cold then close them. In either case, this should help to give the property a nice fresh feeling when sellers come to view.
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.

Food For Thought
Why Use A Solicitor?
Many people begrudge the money they have to spend when they buy or sell property. Who can blame them? The government's stamp duty, the estate agent's fee, the HIP pack, all the search fees, the new, more expensive land registry fee, and then of course the solicitor's fee. Some people try to cut out the estate agent, others try to cut out the solicitor. Cutting out a Bideford solicitor is a really bad idea! Use a qualified professional for your property transaction, or you are very likely to regret it!
When will I have to pay money out?
As a seller, you will have to pay for a Home Information Pack before marketing can begin. Once you have secured a sale, your Bideford solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. The balance of the money from the sale will come to you on the day of completion. The solicitor will take their fee out at this stage, as will the Bideford Estate Agent. As a buyer, your solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. On Exchange of Contracts, you will be asked by your solicitor to provide 5% or 10% of the purchase price. On the day of completion, your mortgage money will come in to your solicitor who will pass it on to the seller.
