Selling Tips

Clean your windowsClean 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 Colchester property buyers.

Pay For A Deep CleanPay For A Deep Clean - If a girl was going out on a important date, there's a reasonable chance she's either spend a lot of time at home getting ready, or even go to a Colchester beauty salon. If you're trying to sell a Colchester property then don't treat it any different! Consider getting in a deep-cleaning service. Prices, and level of service will vary, so look around! They will steam clean carpets, curtains and upholstery. They will get rid of all of the dirt that you may not even notice. Your oven will look like new! Hopefully the overall freshness and odour of your property will improve. This should really help with your sale!

Sort out your lighting.Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Colchester property. Consider sorting your lighting out. Consult a specialist if you need to. Dark rooms can look small and poky. Rooms that are too bright can look harsh and unwelcoming. Very bright light will show up all marks, dirt, stains and dust.

Modernise dated fittings.Modernise dated fittings. - It's arguable that some folk love "dated". The majority don't. If your house is looking more 80s than "now" you may want to consider zapping the worst offenders. Nasty wallpaper can be covered with a lick of paint, cupboard doors and tiles can also be painted over, and door handles are easily replaced. Colchester property hunters will mainly prefer a "blank canvas" to a scheme that sticks out as being dated.

Food For Thought

Variances in Legal Fees - Why do charges vary so much between different solicitors?
Why is there is such a difference in legal professional fees when it comes to purchasing and selling houses? It's a important question, and I am sure that you are wondering if it has anything to do with the standard of service? You'll be surprised, but the answer is normally NOT AT ALL. The usual rule is this: you only get what you pay for. This is not the case here. It depends on the scale of the solicitor's busienss. There are legal firms who only work with property related business, and on a very large design. They are very highly experienced and efficient and pass down large cost reductions to their customers.
Take a look at Their Website
If you are conducting research into Colchester estate agents it is well worth your while taking a careful look at each one's website. There are some prudent questions to ask : How easy is the agent’s website to find in internet search query? Is the website well presented in a professional and modern manner? Is it rich with information? Can you search the property stock easily? Are the property descriptions written in a concise and informative manner, in good English? An agent’s website can tell you much about the quality of service you can expect from them.

All queries were responded to quickly and efficiently. I would recommend this firm.. Mortgage Broker, CO3. Rating: rating: 5 stars November, 2013

Beaumont Legal

Daniel at Beaumont Legal on the whole managed my case fine. Communication was poor at times and I didn't feel like there was a lot of advice or guidance forthcoming. However, the quality of the information pack and the fee level mean that overall they were decent value for money.. Client, CO7. Rating: rating: 5 stars September, 2013

The Legal House

Ross Coates Solicitors

Josie Quinn was absolutely fantastic she never once hurried me off the phone even when I was probably waffling. She showed a personal intrest in our case, was very proffesionall at all times and quick to sort any discrepancies. She helped make what could have been a very stressful move into something quite enjoyable. I also liked the way I didnt have to wade my way through receptionists to speak to her. Unlike some other organizations were they say hang on a mo whilst I check if their free. she and her colleagues at the kesgrave branch made me feel like nothing was to much trouble , well done girls! Just a little note one unamed representative at the Ipswich branch could learn alot from the staff at kesgrave. As my experience with her was far from good bordering on dam right rude. Could do with a training session in dealing with the public sensitively!. Client, CO7. Rating: rating: 5 stars April, 2011
