Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Kirkby Stephen property on the market, then you may want to consider getting your garden fences painted / repaired.
Privacy is an important issue for many house buyers, and a tidy, secure, well-maintained boundary with neighbouring properties will be a big plus, rather than "another job that will need doing".
In the same manner, ensure that hedges and trees are trimmed and tidy.
Gloss Work - Tired looking Gloss Work (such as doors, door frames and skirting boards) can make a property look shabby. Try to bring it all back to a shine with a damp cloth.
Bully The Property Agent - It is perhaps foolish to rely on the property agent to work too hard when drawing up the marketing brochure and populating the window promotion details. Make sure you look very carefully at what they have created and don't be shy to request that they execute changes to these items if you feel that they simply haven't been diligent enough. Look for bad spelling and grammar. Make sure that all of the statements are correct.
Have Realistic Expectations About The Current Market - Like much of the rest of Great Britain, the housing market in Kirkby Stephen has been better. You should be realistic with regards to the actual asking price of your property if you are wanting a quick sale. Finding a buyer may be hard work, especially if you over-stretched yourself on your mortgage when you bought your property. Think about having a chat about your situation with your IFA, and your estate agent to agree a suitable valuation for your home.
